This blog is about my life, a 31 yr old filly; working in the city, balancing her career, passion for horses, dogs, and the life they deserve. Following my dreams, and getting there takes a lot of patience and a sense of humour. This is my take on life, and the amazing and stupid things in it.

Jumpin' Jumpin'

  Archie has always had an unorthedox jumping style.  Lately though, it seems he has really improved his technique and form.  He only started jumping about 2.5/3 years ago, he is 13 this year.  He was a late start, but there may be hope for him yet.

 Check out a small photo montage of Archie jumping through the last two years, as the fences get bigger and he jumps better :)

  1. I'm hoping Gracie's form improves as the fences get higher! I kind of expect it will, but it's nice to see that it does indeed happen!

    1. It's interesting...the bigger the better too ....just hike em' up ;)

    2. I'm looking for the 'like' button, haha.

  2. Wow, even my untrained eye can see how far Archie has come. He looks really graceful and strong by the last photos!

  3. Big improvement! He also doesn't look easy, a testament to your talent and hard work.

  4. Woof! Woof! Great strong jumps. Mom's friend daughter won a umping competition and the photos were amazing like yours. It surely reminds me of my dog agility years. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. I love that you can see him growing up!

  6. Wow, so beautiful to watch the two of you! Really amazing!

  7. Great progress! You guys look awesome.

  8. Ozzy is also an unorthodox jumper. I don't think he'll ever change. Haha. He improves slightly if we really school, school, school for extended periods of time, but if he gets a couple weeks off jumping, it's back to square one.

  9. Your horse is so pretty! I don't do any jumping on the lesson I ride on, but I do love it. On the lessons I used to do, when they let us jump, it was over a cross-pole about a foot off the ground. My horse, who was 17.2hh, used to look disdainfully at the 'jump' and purposely put one foot over at a time. He knew how to make me cross!
