So decided to start playing around with Junior again until he sells. I am going to try to show him if I can and just have a good time since I can't jump the horse I am currently riding, at least not yet.
So critique is welcome, but please read everything fully before your comment.
This is my first time jumping him in six months and my third time riding him since he came back in April...decided to ride in a dressage saddle and then threw in some jumping, I have never jumped in a dressage saddle...Fail.
So those were not that good...I know.
These are from today, eight days after the photos above, jumping in the correct saddle now. Second time jumping him in six months and fourth time riding him since he came back in April.
All in all I loved today! It was a lot of fun. With some work I think we can do well. Oh and if you are wondering why we are jumping in grass and not the arena in the second set of pictures it is because he gets ouchy in that arena. He enjoys the grass a lot more. Plus it has been so hot here that the grass is completely dry and not slick at all.
JUST FOR LAUGHS :]
^^There is so much wrong in this picture it is insane!
^^Closed eyes, Junior's mouth wide open.
