hubby jumping

a while ago someone asked when I was going to post pics of hubby jumping. Well today he decided he was going to try a few small jumps. I wasnt big on the idea as he hasnt got his riding figured out properly but he was determined he could do it so I figured well he has to come off for the first time at some point lol unfortunately I believe the only way he will understand is to have a bit of a buster without getting to hurt

So here are a few pics. He actually didnt do too bad :) I think he's been practicing behind my back :)

He looks pretty good to me :) Again, he is really tall, hard to get all that together for a jump. What did he think of it?
Is that Jarrad he is on?

he had a blast :)
He is in cougar because I've told him he is not allowed on jarred until he gets a bit more riding experience and until I've finished 'ironing out the creases' :)

Appylover - he does have good release...better than me sometimes lol

Fehrgroundranch - he is tall. He's 6'4" :)

that was the first time he has jumped and he's been riding a few months.

Cougar is 16.1 :)

now that I know it's his first time jumping, he did wonderful! I can't see in the first picture, but in the 2nd and 3rd he's looking to where he's going. No looking down at the jump (something I did all the time)

Are you giving him lessons? Or is he learning by watching you?

BTW Cougar looks gorgeous. Was he one of your rescues?

I've been giving him lessons but the jumping part he taught himself. Well kinda!! I told him the way it should happen, what he has to do etc but then he just did it :)

Cougar is looking good. He isnt one of the ones I had when I started on here. Well I had him but he was stuck at a pony club somewhere else. He lost heaps of weight by them we got him back but he's picked up well
