When Zeus was a jumper pony. :]

I know I posted this when I was looking at him, but I though I'd share it again.

Zeus and his owner (I still lease right now), in 2007.
Boy can definitely jump. And our dressage is coming along... hoping to start jump lessons with him soon. Though I doubt I'll ever be jump THAT high, ha ha.

Anyway. I'll stop rambling.
Check it out!

WOW! Zeus is quite impressive! He looks like he wants to be an eventer

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

^ I'm thinking that some low level eventing is in our future. If we can get our dressage work consistent, get our act together over fences, and if I can overcome my fear/anxiety about showing. Maybe in a few years? Ha ha. But no, in all seriousness, I believe there a little mini event/trial in my area that my trainer is taking some people to. If my BO's daughter goes I might go and tool around the show ground. School him a bit over fences. Get Me used to the atmosphere, ha ha.

Also might be doing a dressage schooling show in a month or so... stupid irrational fear of shows.
I will conquer it!

^ He can get very hot, and I'd image he was wanting to flat out run and ignore her completely. Sometimes it really does take that much aid to get him back to reality. He's a STRONG horse, and I'm sure she would have been more subtle and softer if he would have listened to it. She's a great rider, and knows him well.
:]

And thanks ridergirl! I actually haven't come off him yet (had him for probably something like 7 months now).

He sure looks like he loves to jump! Haha! He's sooooo cute too, and has a nice neat jump.

So when will you know if you are purchasing him, or are you doing the lease to own thing? I hope you can get him...you two are such a cute couple!

Thanks, you guys! I love watching this video, he does jump great. :]

Right now I am leasing to buy, and while I don't know exactly when we'll buy him, I do know that we will.
I'm guess it'll be whenever I get a steady job.
