Had to share - student's 1st over fences class :)
1 Attachment(s)
Our county fair started this week & one of my little students had her first show of the week today. They did their over fences show & she has only been riding english for a bit over a month & has went over a few teeny cross rails at my house. She's a brave one & wanted to participate every day of the fair so after much begging on her part, her mom & I caved. We let her sign up for BN Hunter Hack. Did a 15 minute impromptu lesson on form and here she is on her 21 yr old farm broke Haflinger mare going over her first "real" jump. Not perfection by a long shot, but she got it done. There were 19 in her class and she got 3rd! She was so proud of her pony & I was proud of her. Can't wait to watch her grow as a rider over the next few years :D

Thanks Serafina! It's been fun for me, I haven't ridden english or jumped in years. Something out of the norm for the working cow horse girl :wink:

Thanks kv! She's the sweetest darn thing! I try to buy her at least once a week. She'd never been rode english let alone looked at a jump, the old girl has a heart of gold and will do just about anything for her 10 year old rider.

Thanks everyone! I'm pretty proud of her, if you couldn't tell lol! We are finally done! Minus the stifling heat & a bit of a crabby, contrary pony towards the end it went great! 2nd pony HUS, 2nd w\t Jr exhibitors, 1st Jr. Equitation, & Grand Champion Jr. Equitation. :) :) :)
