Excel's first time free jumping!
 
After all the snow melting, it came back, all soft and fluffy and great riding snow ;-). So I strided out two little jumps and free jumped Excel for the first time. What do you think?

The jumping doesn't start until 0:50

Such a character. I can't believe he was just having so much fun! I think he did great, but I'm not a jumper so I wouldn't really know.

Thanks Gizmo, he has a ton of fun with it. He's changed so much in the past year. Last summer I needed spurs to keep him at a trot, and lately he's just beenn a bullet from a gun! :D

Wow I would have never guessed that!

Oh yes, he was a total deadhead before he put weight back on. Can you believe he was retired from racing because he was too slow/lazy? :-P
