Onto the show...
This is the second jump in the Training Level cross country course.
I'm not sure what number the jump above and below in the next two photos was, but it was somewhere in the middle.
This jump was like a table. Not only was it about 5 feet tall, it was about 4 feet across!! Holy Moly!!
The above horse has a cute, curly mane. She must have competed in dressage before she ran this course =)
Oh, I just LOVED this big gray horse. His name had the word Granite in it. I think he is an Irish Draft as well. So steady and such a careful jumper he was.
Here was the dressage. Such pretty horses. These same horses were the ones jumping the cross country course. In a three day event, dressage, cross country jumping and stadium jumping are all done by the same horse and rider. It's quite a test of athletic ability and communication.
I hope you enjoyed the photo show! If you live close by, you NEED to go to Rebecca Farms when they have "The Event" next year. Beautiful!!
