She did well with Eventing, always placing top 3 in her division (low levels though, only 2'0", but still, she did well!) so this may be a bit of a learning curve for us, but I think she'll be happy with the break.

She carries herself naturally more like a Hunter anyway. Here's an idea of how she moves

I love her expression over the jump, paying attention and alert.

In fact, I don't think I have EVER seen her upset during a jump! Even when I was first learning to jump years ago (and she was too!) and got VERY off balance and left behind on this jump, she was STILL happy as can be haha!!

She was like lalalalalala where's the next one mom?
