Super excited :)
 
Brutus is finally sound again! We won't be jumping for a while but I'm still super excited about it. He has like the best form over fences of any horse I've ever ridden, and the most eagerness and love for jumping :) So as a way of coping with my excitement I thought I'd brag on him some, because even if I can't jump him talking about him jumping is slightly therapeutic, lawlz :)

Brutus doing 4'3" Before you argue with me on the height, as has happened on a previous occasion, the standards are about 6 feet, Brutus is roughly 14.1h, the green barrels are roughly 3'6", and I think the white block things are 3 foot. :) The highest he's done is 4'9" but it was not caught on camera :(

Haha this one is a bit blurry and a major overjump but he refused to canter and trotted up to it instead :P Silly pony.

Please note that its him I'm bragging on and not myself :P A lot of these pictures are from last summer and even some before it and I'd only been jumping a year and a half so it was all a learning experience, and my eq was (and still is) horrendous.

When we get back up to where we were before with physical shape (both of us, I've been slacking off a bit while he's been off :P) I want to do A and AA pony jumpers with him :) And I want to go to pony finals, and I want to school some cross country, and I want to do some combined training, and I want to eventually compete 3'9" jumpers, and I'm rambling :P Haha excuse my general over excitement, and shameless bragging, I'm just soooooo happy he's sound. He's been visibly lame since late February, "mysterious bucking" (early signs of soreness, just not visibly lame is what I'm thinking) appeared in late September and went on through December and we basically weren't doing anything then. It stopped for like 2 months and then the visible lameness went in. So basically since late September I've gotten 2 months of working with him. I'm super siked to be riding him again :P

That's awesome. You shoud brag about your horse! Shoud've seen me strutting around everywhere the first time was able to get my gelding go on the bit.

I wish you all the best in your future plans.
