Jumped What With What?

Recommended Posts

That's what my mom said to my excited "3', that's right!" I haven't jumped more then a cross rail/2' fence in the last 6 years due to injury/lack of horse/etc. Today got on Eurus and we did one or two jumps of a crossrail and 2' vertical. He was really lazy so I thought "why not pop it up and see if he wakes up" He's been juming his 5' pature fence on a weekly basis so I know he can do it. Made a nice little x rail oxer with the X at 2'3 and the bar at 2'6. Jumped it, then moved the bar to 3'. Jumped it clean (both of us) twice and stopped before our luck ran out.

Oh and my knees currently look like this from a horse a work that didn't appreciate having his sheath cleaned (just forget to mention it was MY horse that did it) I don't recommend jumping with hematomas for knees.

Eurus has been jumping once a week for the last 2 months. Nothing hard, never more then 15 minutes, never over 2'. We have a nice gymnastic line outside at my coaches house but tonight it was raining so I was stuck in the little indoor where there is only room to set up one fence. I have also been jumping my coaches young horse and am taking her in a clinic later this month.

Will try to remember a camera soon
