So I cannot even classify this as jumping because the rails were so small. Add to that the fact that I choose to trot the “course” instead of cantering it and…well…it is just not a very pretty picture! Hahaha…all well. It was all in good fun. And the funny thing is that even as ugly as this was we still got 2nd place because all but one other horse had a refusal! How funny is that? Maybe I should turn my fat spotted pony into a jumper…hahaha…or not. Don’t worry though…he will learn how to jump at some point…like really jump and not just trot over cross rails. He certainly was a brave little guy comparatively speaking.
Hahaha…how bad is that video. It just makes me laugh. Can you tell I have no eye for distances anymore (not that my eye was ever great). Feel free to mock me if you want. I am still proud. I don’t know many other people who would be willing to just go out there and try something else knowing they would most likely make a fool of themselves.
*On another note…Phoenix and I did not place very well in the flat classes. Thankfully, I have videos of them that I wanted to upload to youtube so that my hunter friends out there can tell me what was wrong. Stupid youtube is not letting me upload the videos though. I have tried 3 times and all 3 times it says “Failed to upload because of an unknown error”. Anyone out there know what is going on and how I can fix it?
