Equuestriaan's Photo Thread

Hey everyone!

PintoPony inspired me to start a photo thread, now that our jumps have been moved to the outdoor ring, and my mom has agreed to take pictures almost every week. So, this is going to be my thread for all my photos! Unfortunately, I have to blur out my face. It's a parent rule, and they'd kill me if they found out I was showing my face to complete strangers :) (not like I don't trust you all).

I have been riding for about 9 years and am 15 years old. I currently ride a 15.3hh horse named Dakota. Please don't critique these pictures, because there are only certain ones I want critiques on, and I'll post those in a new thread on the critique board. However, I really love to read replies, so positive feedback is always good!

All that being said, here begins my photo thread!

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

Today was my last practice before the show this weekend! My goal was to just have a good time and not try to practice anything new. We warmed up and Dakota seemed to enjoy the openness of the outdoor ring and all the extra space.

Today for the jumping half of the lesson we decided to practice the course we will be doing on Sunday at the show, which is at our barn. I'm only jumping 2 feet in the show, so that's what we practiced.


First jump



Diagonal line







The pictures didn't turn out too well for the other two outside lines.

So after that, my instructor asked us if we wanted to jump the ominous wall, a solid wood jump 2'6'' high and 1' wide. I was all excited and agree to go first. I knew he would stop the first time so I was sitting back more as we approached, and then at the last minute I was so sure he would jump that I jumped up his neck:



The next thing I knew, his head went down and he ducked to the right, and I flew over his shoulder:



I was okay, it didn't hurt at all! So I got back on and did it again:



And again! (This is my favorite pic from today)



I'll post more pictures on Sunday night after my show! Hope it goes well! I have 3 jumping classes and 1 under saddle class! =D

Awh. He's a cutie. Good job for getting back on! I hate when people don't, unless of course they can't! Good luck at the show.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Thanks everyone! I'm so excited. XD It's a pretty laid-back show since it's just people from the barn but at least I won't have to deal with him refusing or freaking out at other horses like he did at the last show. And luckily, the wall isn't in my course!

Aww! Why not? I like it because I can just wear what I usually wear to school and don't have to change at the barn.
