Look what we've been doing!!













We had such a fun morning! We went with a friend who rides her horse western style and just wanted to take him out somewhere. Echo was a star - she jumped everything I asked her to and didn't put a foot wrong - except for a strange little hoppy thing she did after a couple of jumps. She really enjoyed herself, as you can see in the videos. She was absolutely exhausted though!

Really happy with her - she travelled well and was very calm the whole time - what a superstar!

Good job Echo!!!!!!!! She looks great going over those jumps. That looks like so much fun. I wish I had a cross country course and a horse old enough to ride lol. Thanks for sharing.

You look so good on that horse. Ever hear of people who are MEANT to be riding horses? You look like one of those people.
This looks so INSANELY FUN! I wish there was a place like that near me. Maybe I should be working on getting my horse to even want to go on trail first xP

Oh wow, that is cool! I love how she hopped a little after jumping...cracks me up. The ponies I had as a kid did that after jumps. You can tell they were so proud of themselves!

Hi there!!

he strange little hoppy!! Its just about all i'm experiencing with my Off the track thoroughbred! He seems to have made it his regular canter, which almost unseated me when he first did it!!! (by now I can sit the hoppie) *g*

P.s . Echo has a very nice 'bascule' form over the jumps
