Mooey Ganooey (yep that is Moo’s nickname) 🙂 and I had a show jumping lesson with Louise Light last week. I have always wanted a lesson off her and boom, there she is living right on my door-step. Lucky me 🙂
Moo and I were very happy when we arrived and as per normal Moo was the awesome trying horse with the undying work ethic that he always is.
He truly is a unicorn. I love him x
We started with a warm-up which went really well I thought.
There were other horses and a colt nearby and he took it well for a horse that has never seen a show-jump arena before.
Moo was not having a bar of it to start with.
He just plainly stopped and wouldn’t move for a while.
Whilst it wasn’t desirable, I did respect his effort as I am a stubborn person also.
With that being said, of course eventually I had the win for the day and Moo did eventually jump a jump. 🙂
And pretty soon it looked like this 🙂
I was super happy and went home feeling like I had jumped the moon. I haven’t actually jumped a horse in a Show Jumping / Cross Country Competition since 2009 so it was awesome to remember that feeling of feeling the freedom that comes with jumping.
I am trying to find him a Cross Country Event to go to and hopefully we can put all these new skills to the test.
Wherever you are in the world today I do hope you are having a wonderful day.
Happy Riding & Keep Smiling
