We have quite a bit of snow our neck of the woods, and I was going completely crazy not being able to jump, so yesterday I put on my new eventing vest and took Artie out for some jumping. He didn't seem to be bothered by the snow and, as always, pulled my arms out trying to gallop up to the fence, but I put his SMB boots on, kept him at a slow canter, and we only went 18inches just a few times; he was great. It's been a long time since I've jumped him since I've been working with the other three, so I worked a bit on my 2-pt and felt pretty good about my position....it's coming along, hopefully moreso when I have a trainer!
How do you guys stand not being able to jump in winter? We don't have an indoor as I keep my horses on my property, and a newer riding stable on the street off of ours has one I could seriously ride to, but it'd be really weird to ask to borrow their indoor sometimes LOL!
Anyway, do you just not jump all winter?
