Video stills from our ride weekend before last. :)

I just got around to getting video stills from our last ride on 5/9/10. Sadly, that was the last time I rode. ): We have been doing some TINY jumps (1'). Junior is looking better then ever and is doing great for being 21 now. He is really enjoying jumping again. He hates flatwork so the jumping is a good way for us to get away from it. Anyways, enough rambling. PS: Possible very, very exciting news on Sunday evening... ;)


Just got done with our 15-20 minute warm up, about to start jumping.

What a handsome guy.

Looking at the next jump.

Ignore me, I lost my balance for a second.

No, he isn't pinning his ears and no I'm not pulling on his mouth.

I love this. :)

Cantering up to our little 1' jump. ;)

I think Junior secretly wants to bea super pony.

Booty shot!

Landing our little 1' jump.


The jumping pictures in the next post. :)

Lets start off with two pretty pictures of his face. :)



He isn't pinning his ears. Oh yeah, and that is one of our new bridles!

Now jumping pictures!




Yes, the "jump" is only about 6"-9"... -.- Don't judge me. ;)




Long spot.

Chipped in... -.-

I love how round he gets before jumps.


Landing.

Ohh, and stirrups leathers, does this length look better? I have been trying to make them a bit longer and they feel awesome at this length. :)

Great pictures and thanks for sharing!

I have a question though, I know you said he isn't, but to me he is - why are his ears pinned back so much? What is going on?

He normally does that anways, it is just kind of a thing he does. I am thinking it is a saddle fit issue though. He didn't seem like he was moving quite right and he is fine in my dressage saddle. I am selling my jumping saddle and am going to try to find a good, used saddle (do you know any brands that fit well on narrow shoulder, HIGH withered horses?).

LOL!! Junior will jump over 'trot poles' that are only an inch thick. He lifts up his legs over shadows that 'look' like trot poles too. -.- He is a hard one to understand, but he is a blast to ride!! Everyone who rides him thinks his flying over 1' jumps is super fun.
