We Like Comparisons

Let's face it. Us horse crazies, we like to see the change. Feel the change. BE THE CHANGE. Well, good changes anyways. Conformation shots? Yes please. Fun tack changes? Yeah, that too. Rider improvements? Uh huh. So, after our xc clinic, I thought I would look back and see what we looked like two years ago, when we started this whole jumping thing.

Just a warning, it may hurt your eyes.

Crouching tiger...

riding dragon.

Looking at the ears is not the answer.

Hmmmm

Tilting forward with no leg is also not the answer.

Our first event derby, June 2014

First xc jump

 Yeah, see. I told you it might hurt your eyes. Don't get mad. I gave you fair warning. At least we look like this now:

MUST DO AGAIN.

Ah, yes. Progress is good. Now, time to make even more.

    1. I like not crashing and burning, so that position better be steady over these bigger jumps!
