    Cool Green Hunter Goes to Jumper Land [video!]

    My sweet OTTB who's been jumping since July played in the jumpers this past weekend. So proud of him! You can tell he's used to hunter land but he had such a fun time!

    Few operator errors in there but he was SUCH a star

    GOOD poneeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!! Albeit I have to admit he did make me laugh once with the "Wha, huh? ANOTHER lead change? Jeeze, lady, how many do ya WANT in one trip? Those are HARD!!" thing! TBs will *always* tell ya what they think.

    Seriously though, lovely lovely horse, great great job!

    You two look great! I'm taking my hunter to his first jumper show ever this weekend and my first jumper show in 11 years so watching you two kick butt definitely eased my nerves a bit

    What a lovely boy! I think you guys look like you belong in the jumper ring (but I should probably admit that I think everyone should play in the jumpers )!

    Thank you! he was such a good sport! he's SUCH a doll. He was pretty hysterical all day with his lead changes and his "gallop" to the timers. We were both all smiles, even won a bit of $$ in the little open classic that ran (out of a decent number of well seasoned jumpers).

    Gotta love a gamey TB

    @Overo Good luck this weekend! let us know how it goes!!

    @PNW I'm normally in the jumper ring but he made it apparent he wanted to be a hunter when we started over course work so I let him find his niche. I think he'll be a fun fun all around horse though.

    Super! You should be proud, and you two look good together. Looks like he'll be very versatile. I liked his hunter style and "okay I'm game for it" attitude!
