So below are some pics from an early jump school very soon after I bought him, followed by some that my mom got for me in early May. It might be awhile before I have any more good schooling pics, but I'll take what I can get. It's so much fun to see pictures of him because I know he feels incredible, but I didn't really see how good he looks until I took the time to closely watch these videos a few days ago.
|Early intro to the liverpool, which he jumps reliably now|
|DON'T TOUCH THE POLE|
|It's hard to look great over jumps this small with a horse this green|
|OMG his neck was so scrawny|
|Love those happy ears|
And here are some from May 8, also video stills. I'm so glad my mom will come tape things for us when she can. It's easier to get people to tape/photograph a horse show, but right now he's jumping well below our schooling level at shows, so those pictures aren't as fun (except the Sandstone ones, I love those still). That'll change eventually, but watching him plop over crossrails isn't thrilling.
|Not unhappy with my lower leg here|
|Those knees tho|
|He loves his job.|
|Still like my leg, hating my upper body and lack of release. |
The green horse excuse is there but I can equitate better.
|I suck here but he looks PHENOMENAL to me. Holy crap.|
