Talking 1st jumping lesson after 2 month vacation :P

This is me and my horse after both of us had about two months off. As you can see I'm pretty out of shape and am not exactly holding my position that great but he looked so happy to be jumping again I had to post it. =D

you look great. I especially like how even his pace is the whole way around. Shows you're really in control and he's having a great time

That is one FABULOUS horse! He is soooo beautiful! And looks very "ready to go"! Look pretty good for 3 months off..Keep riding and those jumping muscles will be as good as new..

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Thanks so much everyone! We are working hard. He's amazing and I love him so much. <3 Today we went swimming in the creek. I'll post a video when I get it. He babysat a little 7 year old girl through the water when her pony didn't want to go in. :)
