I’ve had my horse for over ten years now and in that time she’s gone from semi-feral greenie to an absolute gem. In particular, her confidence over fences has come literal leaps and bounds. For years and years she’d always add a stride or do the pony shuffle at the base of the fence if we got a wonky distance, but as her confidence has skyrocketed (and as I’ve learned to stop pulling so much!) she’s become more and more likely to take the long spot. Having had this horse for so long, I forget that she isn’t a baby anymore and it still catches me off guard when she has the gusto to pick a long one that I often audibly gasp as we’re in midair over the fence!

Sponsor Corner: Did you know that a portion of your order at World Equestrian Brands is donated to FlyPups? This non-profit transports dogs from desperate situations to fosters, no-kill shelters, and fur-ever homes. FlyPup pilots also bring aid and relief to areas of natural disaster.
Morning Viewing: I have no idea what’s actually going on here, but here’s video of Ingrid Klimke show jumping while dressed up as Pippi Longstocking. You’re welcome, I guess.
