Dad came to take some pictures of Jack and I riding today. He has an awesome new camera and I wanted some good photographs of Jack and I since we don't have many decent ones.
We were going to get some jumping but Jack was acting up quite badly and I wasn't willing to risk it so here are a few dressage pics to show you. The colour photo is one of Jack doing his crazy thing. I'm not really sure if he is bucking or not but whatever it is, it is naughty.
I'm not a natural rider and have to work hard at everything when it comes to riding. But that doesn't matter because I love it, and it is worth it when I'm flying through the air on my horse, or galloping along a sandy beach. My horse fufils me.
Jack is a 15.2hh, 10 year old, black thoroughbred gelding. He was 3 years old when he was rescued off the racetrack. Before I had the opportunity to buy him, Jack was showjumped at successfuly at 1.20m and did a few One Day Events. We met in Septemeber of last year and I immediately fell in love. Since then, we have competed our first Pre-Training together and my confindence has sky rocketed. He is my soul mate.
