3ft 6, 3ft 6!

I have been jumping my horse since February this year and I swear he had never seen a show jump before in his life. He had hunted so I knew he had the ability to jump and I had jumped a 2ft odd rustic before I bought him.

We started over poles and he would spook at them, run out, stop dead or jump nap away. After a few goes (lol) he began to walk over them. We then tried small cross poles and uprights. As soon as he got used to the idea of poles, he would jump quite well. He is still a little off with fillers (and some other scary things), but mainly I would trust him to jump most things.

So feb this year we were jumping 6 inch cross poles and now in november, here we are! Well done Willie, proud of you xxx

Here is the picture!

Rode today too, he ran out at a 2ft 9 (ish) jump and I fell off! Well not much of a fall, more like 'hang there for a while, then slide off and wait for my friend to get my foot out of the stirrup' LOL! Just goes to show you have your good and bad days.
