Jumped Kira for the first time today!
 
Kira's my 5 year old welsh x. I backed her myself last year, spent last year getting her out 'n' about as much as possible, and this year plan on jumping and schooling her a bit more.

She's never jumped anything (apart from out of her field, but that doesn't count!), so on Friday I lunged her over a teeny-tiny jump that was probably about 6 inches high! She got so excited after the first time she galloped around bucking, and it took me a few minutes to calm her down! We worked up to about a foot, and then left it at that.

Today I was schooling her, and she was so good I put the fence up again and lunged her over it - not really planning on riding her after her exciteable reaction before!

But she was so good, I hopped back on and rode her over it a few times! She LOVED it - never a hesitation or a thought of ducking out. It was brilliant!

No pictures, as I was on my own, but I'm going to drag my boys along next time so we can get some piccies. Can't wait to take her a little higher!

Reading it back, it doesn't sound very major, but it was a big milestone for us!

that is GREAT! as long as she likes it, she'll be good! sometimes my Lacy is lazy and acts like shes never seen a jump before, but other days she'll be perky and be going over the fences like shes been doing it for 30 years!(shes 4 xD) lol
