Apologies for haphazard & bouncy video, old school digital camera at work.
The round itself leaves a lot to be desired, my flapping leg cues for take off and running her into the base of the fences resulting in my being jumped out of the tack more often than not are some of the rather unflattering things i do.
Regardless of all my bad riding, I am still super proud of my little horse who to this day continues to put up with my bad riding - although she is less forgiving now days.
When it comes to jumping & competing, I really do miss Ireland! I regularly flirt with the idea of sending her back to the family farm so that I can fly over every other weekend to compete at the local shows. Crazily it would save me money on the monthly livery fees here, but Nancy & I would miss her too much and what if I couldn't register to compete as i don't really live in Ireland anymore. I am technically on secondment to work here in Lux, but as the job is supposedly safe as houses the only reason I'd move back to Ireland would be if I chose to leave my current position...All thoughts for a rainy day perhaps.
Those adult choices vs horsey dreams are so Freakin hard! I like to day dream too ;DReplyDelete
I love her snappy knees! Not bad at all.
Here's hoping we can make a form of reality from those dreams!Delete
I like it when you jump things. You should jump moar things!ReplyDelete
I would love nothing more than to jump all the things, but sadly I'd have to set it all up and put it all away after myself & I haz no fence setting skillz.Delete
There are jumping lessons at the yard every Wednesday evening. Maybe someday ill get there in time to partake!
Kika is such a good jumper!!ReplyDelete
Yeah, pity about the doofus bouncing about on her back! I didn't half drop her into that double *cringe*Delete
She saved my bacon so many times! We must haz moar jumpz
oooh fun video! and what a fun idea about competing more in ireland... tho yea it sounds like an awful lot of running around...ReplyDelete
I really do want to look into it more as I miss it something fierce; however am half afraid of asking questions and raising suspicion if ya'know what i mean re:residency and whatnotDelete
Not our best work it fun for flashbacks ☺Delete
What fun!! I didn't know you jumped!ReplyDelete
I love jumping, as does Kika. Nancy not at all lolz, she will do trotting poles it put up a fence and she goes bulldozer.Delete
I'd love to get back into popping poles...2016 goal perhaps!
You two look great! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks girl *hugs*Delete
No competitions in Lux? :/ReplyDelete
There but I don't like the way the options, it's either speed or style. (1) I don't want to blow Kika's brain after working so hard to get it back and (2) i would fail so hard in a style class *blush*Delete
I like the "stressfree" approach in Ireland lower levels where keeping the poles up for two rounds gets you a ribbon ☺
Homegirl has hops!!ReplyDelete
She be like the best bunnyDelete
I love seeing the old video! It's interesting to see what you were doing the year I got Chrome hehe. :DReplyDelete
Seems like just yesterday still *sigh* where does the time go?!Delete
I have no idea!! I can't believe my horse is almost seven and my dog is eight.... they were just babies it feels like!Delete
Nawwww, they'll always be out babies. I can't believe I have Kika 9 years next month O.oDelete
