I jumped tackless....
..and fell off/bailed for the first time in almost two years when I couldn't stop him. Bonked my head pretty hard learned that jumping an OTTB tackless is a very dumb stupid idea. Cool pics though. Anything for the money shot :)
... we wrapped up Sept with my friend Jess jumping Yankee..
...and me, to practice for WWU schooling show in Oct..
The first thing we did in October was the WWU schooling jumper show. It was a shit show and I don't want to talk about it...but Yankee did very well, it was all mental issues and forgetting courses blah blah blah...
...and was alright with my spoils.
I then accidentally made my horse a nudist by messing up on freehanding more checkboard. But turned out being OK with it. MUCH easier to clean and maintain. I will probably always fully clip from now on. He just looks so sexy naked.
November we jumped quite a bit..
...we had an AMAZING jump school and I remembered how to eq....
...we semi-mastered flying changes...(FINALLY)
Overall looking back I can say we did A LOT in 2013, but didn't really accomplish much show wise, like I had planned to. HOWEVER I am more than proud of our training successes and will use our hard work to further and hopefully advance in 2014!
Get out da way, we have ARRIVED!
