Fail Friday: Cross Country Edition

As promised: being brave and jumping a Novice/Training Rolltop only to fail miserably. Val is a saint for trying to take the first distance I saw, and so clever for fixing it when he realized it was a terrible idea. After this I reverted back to being a cross country weenie. No I didn’t pee myself, but I definitely thought about it.

Would you believe that this is where I asked him to leave the ground? To my credit I changed my mind but by then it was too late.

This is when I chucked my reins and let him figure it out.

Thank you Lauren for the video. Simon’s little ears watching the whole thing are so cute. I’m sure he thought he was about to witness the death of a friend.

    1. I have a problem with leaving out strides and taking super long spots. It’s kinda my thing. And my horse is so scopey he usually covers for me. This one was just a leeeeettle too wide.
