Ugh, half the mares were in season and Brock was a pain in the butt, had to work so hard to keep his focus on me. So the ride was pretty short and I didn't manage to get any photos or video taken of us because my friend was still riding Star.
BUT, we got some awesome photos of Star - she did her first straight 40cm jump today and went over like a pro. She was totally nuts when we got her down from the paddock though, pawing and rearing and spinning around, but we put her back in and had her gallop out the crazies before saddling her up. All
the horses were nuts really - the colts were all rearing and racing each other, the mares were peeing everywhere...
Here are the Star photos - note, she's a teeny tiny 6yo TB who was never trained to race, and she only just started her proper jump training about 3 months ago (she also knows reinback too now, and walks on a loose rein finally
Nope, no jig-jog, no pulling, just meandering along quietly like a good girl:
Showing her true TB nature at the canter:
Happily flying over 40cm:
Relaxing after a hard afternoon's work:
Isn't she just adorable?
Brocky on the other hand was the evil horse of doom through and through today. Argh!
