FINALLY have an opportunity to jump!
...Or learn to jump!
My cousin just bought a 'veteran' jumping pony, who's jumped up to 4 feet (she's a Welsh cross, who's pretty tall for a Welsh pony), and she's going to 'teach' us to jump! My cousin goes to my barn too & she kinda knows how to jump, but moreso she wants to show flat classes. Anyway, she said I can jump her a couple times if I want to! Her name is Lilly and she was a lesson pony, but then the barn that she used to live at stopped giving lessons so they sold her for pretty cheap!
If you've read my other threads about trying to teach my western horse how to jump, you'd know my story. I'm hoping that this pony can at least make it easier for me to teach myself to jump! When they test-drove her, I got to go along and ride her too! Not very big jumps, but I got a 'mini lesson' on her and she jumps really easy! And the owner jumped her over huge fences and she's an amazing jumper and I'm so excited!!! Although she's not mine, I often 'loan' Specs to my cousin when she wants to ride with friends, so she said it's no prob! Ahh!
Sorry just had to share ;)
Every horse is an angel... They just don't need wings to soar!
