    Default O' my god, my boy is growing up.

    I asked DH to come to the barn with me today so that I had someone on the ground as I wanted to jump Urymate a bit.

    I set up a grid and started with some X's and then move the last fence up bit by bit.

    This is what we ended on. 3'9". I haven't jumped that high in years. It didn't feel that high because he is so big. I am so happy I feel over the moon.

    Sorry...I'm still laughing because I thought your horse's name was urinate.

    P it doesn't get really cold where I live in the winter just very wet. The arena is open on two sides and closed on two.

    Here is the video.

    Ah that makes sense. I did wonder if those were windows or not. Still beautiful either way. There aren't many indoor rings down here heck most people just ring in the paddock i think! lol

    He is beautiful with good form jumping and you are going right with him. Good job! What fun. I must have missed seeing your details on your horse. Is he new or are you old friends? How big is he anyway?

    Frosty, He is 6yrs old. I breed him and raised him. 17.3hh I just started him under staddle spring of 2011 but only had 20 rides on him till Nov 2011. Didn't get to do as much as I wanted this summer, So he is still very green as in needs more miles but I am so very happy with him. looking forward to this summer.

    Wow! That's amazing. He's just a baby and with few miles under his saddle but he's jumping with a strong take off and great knee tuck. And he's almost 18 hands high? What's his breeding?

    Don't be, cost of living is very high. Can't wait to get off this Island. Would love DH's next posting to be back to Alberta.
