Bridger JUMPS!

I've got so many things to update about, but this post is all about Bridger.  In typical horse fashion he is trying to make a liar of me.  All last fall I was saying things about how I didn't think he was brave, should probably just do dressage, not thinking he was the horse for me, blah blah blah.  Well I didn't ever actually get him listed and thought I would this spring.  The hubby kept saying he thought Bridger would be nice and I should give him a chance (lots of husband points here for wanting me to keep my oversized herd and not pare it down).  Well I've been getting him going again now that the winter tundra is gone and thought what the heck I will ride him over these logs.  OMG!  Mister spaz pants who can't focus on anything seems to love jumps!  It is like he sees a jump and his brain cells all line up in a jumping row.
I know it is nothing spectacular form wise, but I'm actually more impressed that he can casually canter over it and not launch into orbit.
Love the bright colored sky and grass
Got carried away with color here

I giant dust devil swirled by, so we watched

Picking up where we left off last fall
Thanks to Alyssa for the great pictures!
Like a duck to water, Bridger seems to love the jumps, can't wait to see what he will do.


  1. He's really cute! It's nice when they make liars out of us :)

  2. Yay for you! And Bridger of course, he is adorable! I love grays :)

  3. :-) Good news for sure. Can't wait to see what he does.

  4. He's so handsome. Maybe he just needed some time to think and settle. I adore grays.

  5. Woohoo!
    Major brownie points for hubby ;-)

  6. Love when a horse decides to focus and chooses a job! And serious hubby points too!

  7. Gotta love a husband who encourages all the horses! Bridger is a cutie- maybe he wants to be a hunter (send him to me!!!)
