Cold weather = frisky Phoenix

I hadn't intended to take any photos of frisky behaviour today but Phoenix provided a quite stunning show.

The best photo i got today was this winner. my horse thinks he's a springbok


If he had half the energy from today in our normal rides he would be awesome. as it is i usually get about 1/10th of it.



I almost missed this one he went by so fast.


He had a mad 20 minutes and then was done.

oh yeah, he got pretty high; he bounced around the field but was too quick for me to get any more shots.

Love how the weather turns even the laziest horses into Olympic athletes!

Thanks. Those jumps are less fun when you're on his back.

He's always very pleased with himself after a good old run!

He is a handsome fella! I saw the first picture of him leaping on another post, i think, and it made me laugh seeing him so chipper. I'm looking forward to when my new horse gets his energy back, he was in fairy poor shape when i got him a month ago.
