Excellent! I love how happy you sound once you've jumped!

I jumped 2'6" tonight for the first time in three years. I'm pretty sure I shrieked the first time over, lol. So much fun! I can't wait to go higher!

YAY! Congrats! Sunny is very cute, hehe

I jumped 3' on a new horse last week [was NOT expecting it, I usually jump 2'6" haha] and when we went over the first jump I believe I was shrieking, "HOLY CREPES" or something like that. ^0^ Of course...I let her lose impulsion up to the fence so we had to jump like, straight up into the air. 0.0

Congrats <3 I remember how exciting new heights can be My boy Scribbles had been off for a little bit, so when I took him back to doing the 3'6" the other day he jumped them like they were gianttttt lol. I talk to my horses all the time when I ride, I believe the first time he Olympic-Horse-LAUNCHED himself at the jump I said something like 'HOLYYYY OH MY GOODNESS DIBS' (Dibs is Scribbles nickname XD)

It was great! I was only jumping 2'9" even before I took a three-year break from jumping. So 2'6" felt huge. But I think part of that was that he was jumping huge, because he thought the jumps were bigger than they were!
