Zomg New Pictures
Usually I try to offer you dear readers something extra when you visit this blog. Some wisdom, a chuckle, insight into my personal struggles… Stuff like that. Other times though, I just want to squeal and hold you captive for a few minutes because we had an amazing group lesson on Sunday and dear hubby came to take pictures!
So now you have to look at my sweet boy and then tell me how amaze balls he is, because I’m still excited about how good he was even 24 hours later.
I call this our warm up trot game face.
His listening cap is on.
Probably my favorite photo of the day.
He gets a little strong on the downhill side, but we had some lovely moments of relaxed, loose rein canter even if this is more of a whoa buddy shot.
The bestest pony.
F yeah, let’s go trot jumps.
Maybe one day I will be able to equitate over trot cross rails… Maybe.
but mom, I wanna canter all the jumps
Cross rail like a boss.
A real jump! What, what!
This lesson in jumping ahead brought to you by Lauren.
So that’s the deal. One of those days that make you stop questioning why you do this or pay for that or if it all is worth it. Totally worth it.

Wow that looks like fun, you guys look great!
I saw one of the vertical jump pictures on instagram and I have to admit, I squealed a little bit! You guys look awesome and Simon just looks so happy and perfect!
Um, yeah, we could be long lost sisters – I am a pro at jumping ahead. But I like to look DOWN while I jump ahead. Equitation queen, I am not 🙂
Woo hoo!!! Amen to your last few sentences!!!
What a lovely day! Gives me hope for the future. 🙂
Great photos!! You both look great!!!
You both look fantastic! Woohoo!
Aw you guys look great and Simon looks so happy and relaxed!! 🙂 I feel you on the jumping ahead–I’m forever either getting left behind or getting way ahead but I just can’t find the happy medium!
You both look super!
I could hear the theme to Rocky looking at you game face(s) picture. ;D You guys look great!!
Love days like this!! Hopefully I will have some myself soon! And, the pictures are great!
Yay! You guys look great!
I love the *pat pat* photo. So sweet 🙂
You two look great! What an adorable pony.
That is SO great to hear! I am so happy for you. He looks awesome :).
Oh! I love the first shot over the “real jump”. Too cute!!
You guys look awesome! Yay!
You guys look awesome! Bet it feels great to be back at it 🙂 so happy for you!
LOVE it when it all comes together!
May you have many more such lessons from here on out! 😀
That fourth photo with him trotting out if definitely frame worthy 🙂
You both look terrific!! LOVE his relaxed, happy expression in all of these pics!
I am jealous of all the cute ear bonnets you have! I think they are adorable!
BEAUTIFUL pics! Your boy has quite the trot! And I swear, properly jumping cross rails is honestly the hardest thing ever. I’m a terrible jumper-aheader when it comes to anything 2’6″ or under. It’s actually almost easier to have good eq (in my opinion) over higher fences. Maybe because its scarier, and I realize I better sit back or eat dirt.. 🙂
