A Hunter/Jumper show?

The little mare has some jump in her!

We sent her through the grid a few times. She got faster each time. She was particularly fresh (perhaps, too fresh?), and seemed to think that she was actually there to party in a Liberty class… Now, she just needs to slow down a little and then lift over the jump!

See the video here:  
Funny, she doesn’t jump that quick and flat under saddle…

So, anyway, I haven’t had a chance to school with her over XC. I breathe funny at the thought… In a good way! I’m really looking forward to it!

In the meantime, she needs to do more work over courses. We haven’t had many opportunities for that… So, we’re considering attending a hunter/jumper schooling show!

I’m given to understand that she isn’t really the ideal hunter (at least, not at this point in time), but by entering the hunters, I can still get her the additional experience over fences. I am still uninitiated in the ranks of Hunter/Jumpers.  Any advice/suggestions?

  1. Just because she might not be the ideal shouldn't stop you from entering, schooling shows are the best opportunity to get experience for your horse. Go and have fun!
