The photo on the front page of our website is my favorite. It was taken in Jacksonville of my former Junior jumper Tisolde (www.sakurahillfarm.com).

ok, the quality is not really good, and the jump is really small compare to the other pictures you guys put but this was THE first jump my OTTB went over, and got over her fear of poles :D i was so proud of her

I have so many favorite one of my gelding because I have had him for 10 years now.
Show(ignore my bad eq):

Last summer because he came back from a high suspensory at age 18/19:

This past weekend. Again ignore the horrible eq. This makes me happy because he is almost 20 and still awesome!:

Mare finally decided she'd try to jump the scary oxer. Hence my face...

This is my hunter horse Abner. He and I had a nasty fall when he slipped in the mud about 15 min after this photo was taken. He crashed through a 3' oxer and took out all the fill, I bailed when I realized he was about to land on me. I broke my collarbone and he tore his DDFT. But when my friend sent me this photo, I somehow felt a little better. I was back riding within 8 weeks, and Abner just started work undersaddle again this week. We are both pretty tough, and I think we will be returning to the show ring soon enough.

Omg WANT. I love his face!!!

He isn't mine, but I was leasing him at the time. He was *easily* 25 here. And this is easily ten years ago. He died probably 5 years ago. I love his expression.

Not my horse, but here is a picture of one of my newest favorite IHSA horses - I love the picture because his polos match the ducks on the jumps perfectly!

This horse is probably one of very few who scored ribbons at Washington and successfully negotialed about half of the Marylend Hunt Cup. He was also an excellent field hunter and dabbled in eventing.

This is my jumper when he was 5. My fav pic as this is his classic style -- http://pets.webshots.com/photo/1120923220053911905xRJBMM

This is him fooling around a few years later when he was around 10 or so over 5'. a second too late and I am ducking to catch up to him but at least it is proof he can jump 5' when I bury him to the base, oops! Good boy!: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/2430795860053911905DklTsr

I don't have many pics of him in recent years, but he's still going strong at 16. Love my old man and his powerful jump! Horse of a lifetime, found him running barrels. Bought him on a feeling. Best move ever.

Dakota and Madeline -

I love those pictures! I love the rider's hands and the steady legs. I love the traditional look in Madeline's - that's the sport I aspired to when I started riding in '67. Where'd it go? I think Dakota may have found it, with a different "habit".

Pixie - how lucky were you to have that one in your life?!

This (http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b449/EqJumperR/IMG_0099.jpg) is my new favorite pic- from Thermal this year in the 1.10 jumpers. For some reason, the only pictures that came out well at that height at Thermal are, ahem, rear shots. Oh well.

This (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=6335609&l=0e54e7d2fc&id=512328652) is my favorite picture of my TB gelding Double O'Slevin (Dawn). He finished last year doing the 1.10 jumpers (this was in Estes Park CO) and we've schooled 4' quite a few times :) He's only been showing about 3 years now.

This (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=4331293&l=e7e493a013&id=512328652) is my favorite of my TB mare Smooth Irish Whiskey (Fiona) :) She's pretty well capped at 3'6" but almost always clean. And NOT a "typical" red mare...she packs kids around :)

Well this first one isn't a jumping photo, but it's my fav that's ever been taken of me on a horse! This was at a carnival-type celebration (feria, in Spanish) in a small town (Todos Santos Cuchamatanes, Huehuetenango) in Guatemala that celebrates their patron saint over All Saints Day with a crazy drunken horse race...that I participated in.

This was All Saints Day 2010, and the first year that a woman (me!) ever participated in the race. Hands down, best. time. of. my. life.

http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j408/mkclote/todossantos.jpg

I also ended up making the back page of the 2nd biggest paper in the country...here's that.

http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j408/mkclote/DiarioBackPage.jpg


This one is my favorite jumping picture. Probably 4-5 years ago, this fella is still going strong at 20. Came off the track God knows how many years ago. He is the ultimate babysitter for lower level jumpers and I adore him.

I have a soft spot in my heart for your Dawn horse. He's unconventional over the fences the same way that my OTTB, my Billy horse, was over little fences (why pull your knees to your eyeballs when the fences are so stinkin easy for you? :lol:). I look forward to seeing your pictures over the bigger fences as you move through this year and into next :)

Whoop, your links don't work......a few other folks' links don't work either.

What you have to do is go to the picture and at the bottom of the screen there is a link in tiny letters that says 'share this photo with anyone with this public link' or something. Copy and paste THAT to your post :)

Also, with the new settings, you get that black popup window for photos...once there, just hit the refresh button and it'll take you back to the original layout where that link is.

That first picture of you from the field hunter championship is just spectacular! You have posted it before and I never grow tired of looking at it. Beautiful horse, beautiful form (for both of you) and beautiful turnout!

Send it into Practical Horsemen's jumper clinic critique with GM. I'd love to see his comments, and I'd bet he would be very complementary.

Or, and if you ever grow tired of him, send him my way! I'm partial to that coat pattern.....

Wow!! That first one is amazing! Such determination and giant jump behind you!

Ok, I wanna play too:

This one: http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o514/forwardride/jumpies_juuuumpise.jpg
and this one:http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o514/forwardride/ashley_horsejumpie.jpg
are my favorite over fences ones of my now 19 yo ottb. The first is from the 2010 Foxfield Derby. I just love the light and the softness. The second is from Thermal 2011, our double-clear Level 5 class. I was/am so proud of him!

And this one is from the 2011 Foxfield Derby wherein we conquered the water jump! He jumped the water clean everywhere else (LAEC, Thermal (it was the strangest thing)), but had previously charged right through it at Foxfield (perhaps remembering his eventing days a little too well) and this year we finally cracked it. I was so excited, I nearly went off course: http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o514/forwardride/392802_10150360419343207_582593206_8552859_4065180 17_n.jpg

Just for good measure, this was the water in 2010: http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o514/forwardride/52176_439968903206_582593206_5509410_816720_o.jpg

my favorite picture of all time, we're not jumping anything big, but this was his first event and he ate xcountry up w/ the greatest expression:

had to dig this up, I'd just gotten a diamond-in-the-rough oversized pony from the WV mountains, that apparently jumped! I was like 13.

and later on his years, taking his new owner, another little girl out and showing her the ropes! He's heaven sent.

These are my favorites from a Novice event this past fall.

ccr0009 - I think we were at the same place! Poplar?

This horse is my heart horse. I bought him as damaged goods and spent lots of time and tears trying to sort him out. He's taken to eventing very well, look for us at the American Eventing Championships this fall!

Most enjoyable thread. Please keep posting - it is really nice to see all the pix. Poo, I wish I could figure out how to post some.

Lord Helpus - I remember Valor. For some reason I thought you had a gray junior hunter mare in the 1960s-early 1970s. Must be thinking of someone else.

I unfortunately don't have many pictures of my wonder boy, who helped me finally break out of my 2'6/green horse slump. I only rode him for 10 months before he started a string of health problems and injuries, but he taught me so much in that time. I never wanted to buy any pictures, because I thought I could get 'better' ones in future years. I am so thankful my parents bought this one without telling me! My 3rd children's show, winning a trip out of 23 at an AA show.

And my new horse before I bought him at a Lucinda Green clinic. Sigh, back down at 2'6".

I really couldn't have asked for a more amazing horse to ride he is a 19 yr old BWP who just keeps getting better with age. We were reserve champion in the 1m jumpers for our circuit

He's lovely! BWP?
How's he bred?

this was the culmination of our shows together, less than a year after the first picture. he was fantastic!

This is my big boy last summer in a low adult Classic round. On Saturday he was a loon and dumped me into a fence. On Sunday he was a superstar!

Same horse, two summers ago, when it was about 110 degrees at a show. LOVE this photo.

I also used to have a pony mare, who has since found another home, but she was amazingly fun - I always said if she was 16h, I would have kept her for myself!

She's since retired and with a lovely lady who's had her a couple of years and is now nursing her back from a stroke she had a few months ago! :sadsmile:

Not sure that this is my favorite pic, but this is me with my then/amazing horse, Jordan. He was 5 at the time (TB/Warmblood) and I was 17 (I am now 34!). He was sold to someone in CA through my trainer...not sure to who. Would love to know what happened to him! He was such a puppy dog...very sweet and would come running when I called him! Hope he has done amazing things.

Love seeing all of the pics!

I saw this thread and thought, cool! I'll post one! Then.....wow.....all these nice photos and big fences and I got awfully intimidated :eek:

But okay, here's mine. Taken last summer while we were schooling. We get to school with our hunter coach maybe 3 or 4 times during the show season....the rest of the time my "hony" is at the show barn.

What do you guys think? I love how he's reaching and using his neck.

My turn!

This one is from my early days on the best pony ever, Cochise!
http://pets.webshots.com/photo/2312805070106459217PEcslr

This one is a large pony I was keeping in shape for a friend while I was in college. Can you believe she found him on the highway?!
http://pets.webshots.com/photo/2268920970106459217RdsDSE

Even though he is not super fancy, this is one of the most amazing horses I have ever ridden and I trust him with my life. First jump out on a paperchase, and as you can probably tell by my position, I was not really ready for it! I still love it though, because he looks like a rockstar.
http://pets.webshots.com/photo/2656809520106459217LkFeON

And lastly, this is my OTTB back in our 2'6" days. Even though the jump isn't that big, it is still my absolute favorite of him over fences. I love his expression!
