    I did it!!

    I'm sure you guys are getting REALLY tired of hearing about Leo...but...

    I JUMPED HIM 2'6" ON FRIDAY!!

    It was awesome. I haven't ridden him in a few months [I've been busy falling off...3 times in the last month!] so I wasn't sure how it was going to go.

    Our first fence was...embarassing. Let's just say we ended up walking to it, bahahahaha.

    After that I remembered how to be mean + tough with him...it was AWESOME!

    I jumped a 2'3" course full of roll backs without any refusals! He was bucking and getting upset but I didn't give up and we made some really tight turns and then my trainer raised the jumps to 2'6"...we had some problems at first [I can never get him in front of my leg to the first jump] but...and here's something amazing...

    I jumped a 2'6" skinny jump on the first try!!!!

    Coming to it I was fre.aking out a little bit but I manned up and rode him through his wiggles and we got over! That has never ever ever happened before.

    I'm so proud.

    No video since my camera's broken...but...here was my last ride on him. You can see our problems, haha. See the blue skinny jump? YEAH. I jumped that. At 2'6" [a pole higher than it's set in the video]

    And just some pictures cause he's SO CUTE!


    Us over 2'6"

    aww, thanks! You've always been so supportive of me and the crazy appaloosa. I think you'll be happy to know that *gasp* I'm asking my trainer to ride him again on Friday. AND I'll have video of it!

    Every time you post you're looking better and better. Can't wait to see the video from your lesson tomorrow! I think all the difficult schoolies you ride are really preparing you well for the day you finally get your own horse. You'll be able to handle anything! And when you finally get to build that bond with one special horse you'll be unstoppable!

    aww, thanks! Unfortunately I couldn't go out yesterday [no ride there..I REALLY need to get my license] but I should have a make up lesson this week and I'll definitely get a video then!

    They most definitely are. I think back to when I first started riding Leo...well...




    It was bad. He and all of the amazing school horses have helped me grow SO much!
