Ok, this is the first time I have ever really jumped-propally!! I have jumped in the Bush jumping over 4 foot logs chasing cattle. But I have never acually done it 'with style'. So please don't be harsh, looking back at the pictures I can see that, in the first one I am dropping my weight on the horses neck. Sorry I don't have anymore pictures its taking ages for the pictures to load!!

Number 1.!

Just something I forgot to answer, she hasn't been ridden for a year before that as she was a broodmare, as you can see, she still has a bit of a belly on her

Thanks for replying Nutty is 15.1hh, she is 13 years old..... Yeah nutty's nutty I guess, but thanks for responding!! She hasn't had a good life though, we brought her at 5yr and she was skinnin bones, it took us a good 2 years to get rid of her worms, fix her feet and put some weight on her. She is a sweety- sometime So yeah when she was 7 we put her in foal, she had 2 miscarriages, one at 1 month and the other at 3 months. But third time lucky, we got a colt, which we name 'Third Time Lucky'. At 9 1/2 she was seperated from her first foal to wean. She then had a years break to build up nutrion and we bred her again, successful once again, live born but she gave birth next to a fence down a hill, and the foal tumbled down and drowned in the creek below (horrible story) and I won't go there. So basically I am going to see if she turns out, at the moment we aren't best mates, but that will come-i hope!

Good to hear she's only 15'1 (in good sense :) ) and jumping so nicely. Mine probably will end up this height, so I was wondering whether she's tall enough for jumping. My neighbor said there is NO CHANCE for me to win anything with so small horse. :(
