Our Jumping Course..[:

Our jumping course..Maverick did it wonderfully. Apart from that bumblebee, the amount of times we haven't gone over that jump..scary filler!

You can critique if you want..though I know my riding wasn't great. It was back in the summer. [:

Mell - Oh.. why did you think it was dangerous?

Tim - Well.. my friend insisted on taking close ups as we narrowed it, it used to be a line of three barrels. Nah, not a beer keg.. don't know what it was actually..

Hey nice course you have there!

The only reason I could think for the barrel being dangerous is because of the way you have it stood up. If your horse knocked it over he could catch his back feet on it on the landing and slip. If you put it on it's side and put down ground poles to keep it from rolling away it would be safer. But that's just my opinion.

I see what you mean.. we did have it flat down with poles either side to stop it rolling but we put it upright to make it a bit higher..
