I’m having some troubles right now, and I don’t want to talk about it. My horse is fine though… love him.
Let’s tackle something easy – like perspective. For example, I think the 3’6″ hunter ring looks terrifying. I am pretty damn verbal that I have zero interest in showing hunters that high. 3′ Adult Amateurs? Totally. 3’3″ Amateur Owners? Maybe. 3’6″ Amateur Owners? Oh to the hells no.
So, so so big.
Then we stroll on over to the jumper ring to watch the Low Adult Jumper classic. On classic day, the low adults are 1.05m. Google says that’s 3’4.5″… so basically 1.5″ shorter than the 3’6″ hunter ring. 1.5″ is NOTHING. So these jumps should be just as scary… right?
But to me, they look doable. Maybe even a tad small if I squint or take a Xanax!
I know that the fill and width of hunter jumps can look intimidating, but it’s strange to me that one ring looks impossible and one ring looks doable.
What do you think – am I just a crazy person?
