Lets talk jumping

This is mainly to rant. About your lessons, weather success or fail. Jumper shows, good or bad. Your horse and his jumping history, weather straight down the line or bred from, say, a cart driver. Sharing photos and everyone can critique freely if requested. To talk about different training techniques and lend a hand to new people or with a problem mentioned. Lets. Talk. Jumping. :)

Ill go first and talk about my lesson yesterday, i have a show that starts tomorrow and ends monday. First time back jumping since my Thanksgiving trip to Colorado to skii.... andddd it went like this.

Got Romeo out and he had just been shaved earlier that day, so he was all frisky in the cool breeze, him being a TB bred from a long line of racehorses and did race, i do have to say i was expecting his full fire. lol. but! he decided to calm down just before i got on, and we jumped for around 1 1/2hrs ranging from 3'3"-4'0". Absolute star. Honestly, i was so nervous about jumping again for the first time in a week, knowing i have a show the next couple days. Could not be more thankful for my hot headed little Romeo :)

YOUR TURN! just have fun with it :)

I haven't been able to jump since the beginning of October before the snow hit Makes me grumpy! On the plus side, I may be able to go down south and ride/mentor with an old coach of mine every few weeks
