Being with a horse is a journey that never ends. What they have to teach us is amazing; but we must quiet our mind to hear them. ~ jca

This is what me and Gil did today!




Me and Gil had a blast today! I haven't jumped in over 25 years but today I decided to give it a try. WOW....what fun, it's addictive too, these were small jumps but.....must do it again with higher jumps.
Will write more later......

Looks like the Gil man is a natural.

If you want to make your own jumps christmas tree stands make good bases when they come on sale boxing day for 2.50 each. I can make a pair of jump standards for about 15$ each, thats including jump cups from the tack store.

Jeni, thanks!!!

Katharine, thank you, it was fun, yes, a long time ago.

Sydney, Gilly does love to jump! Thanks for the tip on making the jumps.

Kate, thank you! I was brave that day!

Val, Gilly loved it!

Gail, yes, it was loads of fun. We need more work though if I want to jump higher!

Misha, thanks, it was a blast!!!

Lisa, LOL riding a bike, I never learned to ride a bike until I was in high school. Never had one, always rode my horse. Gilly had jumped by himself but this was his first time with a rider, I thought he did really well.

Paint Girl, it was great, what a thrill!
