Wink Jumping without Stirrups (On Accident!)

Yesturday, Cousteau and I went to show, and had an accident. We were in the Battle of the Champions class, and the jumps were about 2'4-2'6. I lost my stirrups on the first jump in the class, and rode the class without stirrups! My photographer was late, and only got one pictures, but I love it just the same! So, here a picture of Cousteau and Me (without stirrups!)

We ended up going home with first place from the class, and are going to work on not jerking over a flowery jump xD Hope you guys enjoy this!!

Wow, that is so awesome that you #1 were able to ride the whole thing through and #2 get first place! Congrats! You must have been putting in some serious leg work lol. Gotta love no stirrups! xD

See my profile pic? At that show I lost one of my stirrups, which frightened my horse (who then started to full out gallop), and I fell off (straight into a standard)!

I envy you :)

Haha yeah, my legs have been wrapped in ice patches all day xD Cousteau is in his stall for the day, next to his best buddies. My niece Lauren has been working all day, I envy her youthful legs XD

I'm lucky if I can stay on my horse at a trot without stirrups in an english saddle! Maybe I need work on that, lol. You look amazing!
