Knock down a fence
Kill your instructor
Get out of jumping a fence
All this in today’s episode of ”TSSP learning to jump”
Saturday the pony had her first jumping
lesson. We’ve jumped lots of times before but this was the
first lesson with an instructor. Astri (who rides the pony a few times a week) was there to capture all this on camera! This whole blog is in fact inspired by her. Enjoy!
First one out, how to knock down a fence:
A few steps before takeoff decide you don’t want to jump.
Convince your rider that there is no way you’re going to jump that fence.
Give up coming to a full stop, and realize your one way out…
Is to just knock everything down….
And be damn proud afterwards!
Next trick, how to kill your instructor!
Step one: Be a menace
Step two: refuse To jump
Step three: move in for the kill
Last trick for today, how to get out of jumping a fence.
First tell everyone that the fence is S.C.A.R.Y.!
Get the instructor to put one of the poles down.
Walk over it with ease
Trot on like the champion of the world!
And now before you think I’m the worst rider in the whole world… a few pictures of the good parts of the lesson.
