Your horse looks like a talented jumper as well.
Yeah the stirrups were too short in the jumping in the arena and the picture that shows the back of me going over the jump, oscar took a whole stride out going to that jump so it was a huuuuge jump! Lol
Yeah I took a few falls there in february that knocked me back a bit so my position isn't as fluid as it used to be but im working on it! I have just started jumping back over 1m recently so i'l get my position back to the way it used to be soon hopefully:)
Thanks:) he's a super boy! He's a dark horse so he is. When I bought him I didnt think we'd get far but we've jumped 1.60m (5ft6):)
