thanks, i really am happy with how easy it was for her, when its just poles on the ground she tends to get squirrelly, but with both up as fences she was super straight, i guess she was just waiting for the challenge =]
gypsy also made a woman at my barns day. she used to be a trainer but she stopped for various reasons including injury. she was really into hunters & jumpers & everytime she sees me ride gypsy she says 'she wants to be a hunter !' she would probably do well at that, but it would be too boring for her, i know she wants to be an eventer =P i took the original sound out of the video because she was ohhing & ahhing everytime gypsy went over a jump haha
she is cute. What kind of horse is she, how old. I envy you people that jump. I miss jumping sooo much. I tried to jump my mare last nite and she refused and face planted me and I got a bad bloody nose.
gypsy is hanoverian/tb, she is coming 4yo, thats why i am keeping the jumps so low for her. she was so excited to ride today ! but she seemed sort of put out when she realized we werent jumping, the indoor gets so boring !
my 21yo horse on the other hand got to go over some ground poles & cavaletti today [bareback with a halter & lead rope of course] & he totally ran away like a little maniac ! he gets so excited when i jump him over poles or tiny jumps bc hes normally just jumping with beginners & he knows not to run away with them...me on the other hand, i just laugh at him =P
Hey that was totally cute! You two look great! She really seems like she is having a good time and payinng attention to what she is doing!
Exciting when a rider and their mount are growing and learning!
actually i was thinking about it & i remember the first time we went over it she clipped in with her hind hoof thats probably why she lifted her leg so high, that what she does if she clips a trot pole too. she is very expressive with her legs
