Sunday Videos #proudponymamas

Both rides this weekend were awesome.  My friend and I set up some cross rails (low by most people's standards, but bigger than anything we've ever done) and took turns jumping them.  I had so much fun!  Jumping is fun for me, and it gives me purpose to some riding maneuvers that I was lacking.  I'm seeing a new path for Gav and I for sure.  Without further ado, here is one vid my friend's husband took of Gav and I.  Keep in mind - I don't really know what I'm doing jumping wise, just trying to go with him and be kind with my hands.  (aka - I really, really want jumping lessons!)




Next video is of my friend Laura and her pony Sterling doing the ole Black Beauty get-on-horse-while-they're-laying-down moves.  Pretty cool.




I'm a proud horse owner this weekend, and one that had a lot of fun!  Oh yeh - and Cardi won the USDF national championship in the Grand Prix freestyle - so awesome!  :)

    1. I'm loving it too! I don't realize how miserable I get when I can't ride until I get to ride again.
