My boy jumping

I know it's only one picture... lol... But i'm so proud of him and wanted to share!

I have only jumped teeny with Bundy, maybe 60cm at most, as I have no idea if he had ever jumped before. At first he was super lazy. He has never stopped though.

The girl riding him in this picture owns my old horse, Vodka. He injured himself at camp, so she didn't have a horse to ride, so I offered her Bundy. She was in a fairly high jumping group as Vodka was an amazing jumper, so I was a bit unsure how Bundy would go... He was a champ! The higlight of the whole group. He would come up to the jumps in this lopey canter, and I was thinking "he's going so slow, how will he make it over!!! lol!" And he would just pull this energy from nowhere and cleared every jump by a foot! And did it all looking like he was about to fall asleep, lol. My good boy :]

So feel free to critique! Keep in mind it is his first (and so far only) time jumping this big, previously had only jumped maybe half this height, plus this was the first time the girl had ridden him!

Ha ha I was so surprised when I saw the picture... When he's loping up to the jump he looks to be half asleep, and I was worrying he would crash through it! Maybe he will be a better jumper than I had planned :]

looks good! what a beautiful horse.

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

How tall is he? o.O He looks so small compared to that jump! lol

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.
