My first time jumping 3 foot the mare I was riding decided to almost duck out to the right, then at the very last second she jumped clear over the actual standard. I managed to hang on until her front hooves hit the ground, then I proceeded to topple over the side of her neck and and end up doing a somersault before hitting the ground. Instead of jumping 3ft like I originally intend, I ended up jumping an extra 2 feet.
In the early days of the Indian Territory, there were no such things as birth certificates. You being there was certificate enough. -Will rogers
