As much as it pained me to sell Stanley, I knew he wasn't cut out for Equestrian Girl's next equine adventure - jumping. While he could handle some low jumps on occasion as he did this summer doing the cross rails class at the Spur Shows, it really wasn't his thing. While we looked for a horse to do eventing with, we signed up for some lessons. Well, EG did, not me.
This beautiful Warmblood horse is Ritz owned by our friend Maggie.
Maggie has trained Ritz from a baby and she knows her job well enough to handle EG who only knows the littlest bit about jumping.
I hope you can see the big smile on Equestian Girl's face in this picture. She was having SUCH a good time riding Ritz and handling her big jump over the cross rails!
By the time the sun was setting and the lesson was wrapping up, they were both getting tired but had so much fun! No doubt that Equestrian Girl is going to enjoy this.
