So lucky, so spoiled. Even with the crappy parts of life, still forever grateful.
Had to laugh, typed that first paragraph and then was clicking around on the discover part of Spotify...and it found me this song.
Ok, enough mush, onto the pictures that all of us in blogland love!
|Is this even real?|
|Yes we dressage too|
|Classic XC style jump, can't wait to try it out with him|
|Blue barrels like no big deal|
The photos are stills from this video. I started out slow letting him tell me if he was too amped or not. He was very chill so I kept adding in more elements until he had jumped them all. Overall I was very pleased with him. He is very honest about what he is doing, at one point towards the vertical he stuck his head in the air and tried to speed up, as I was about to pull him off the jump to reapproach he was like hey we have to get over that and while he knocked it down I was pleased that he wanted to do the jump. It was definitely a learning session about distances for him, I try to stay out of his way with a supporting leg so he can figure it out. There were some long, some short, and some just right, the best part is that he is all about the next thing, an awkward jump doesn't fluster him.
