Happy Australia Day! Got up early and convinced my OH to come and take some pitures for me.

Is that your "other" aena full of jumps behind you? <envy>

How big's the pony? How tall are you? OH is a good catch with the camera, by the way. What a well behaved pony wony :)

Gee wish my OH was that well trained on how to take good horsey pics. Nice pony, gorgeous arena, you lucky thing!

Happy Australia Day! Great pics :)

Haha no DB, it is just a paddock beside the arena and the jump wings are just sitting on the other side of the hedge. I agist my horse at my best friends house, who is also my coach :) I'm 5"8 1/2 and Drifter is 15.3hh. I am probably a bit long legged for him but oh well, I have to make do!

GoneRama, I have been asking him for about 6 months to come and take pics... so not THAT well trained!!! :D

Hahaha ok so I'll change my words from 'well trained' to 'well done for getting your OH out there to take pics!'

He's got good timing though, fluke or is he a reasonably good photographer?!

Complete fluke, and it was just on my iphone so that is why they are pretty crappy. I just zoomed in on them and cropped them.

Just got home from some Australia Day celebrations where my coach just won the Senior Sportsperson of the year award! Yay! I nominated her as well, so it was a great day all round :)

Told ya didn't I - WELL DONE ...

YOU and 'Drifter' ..... you both had to work very hard to achieve what I just saw ..... Well Done :):):)

You are both looking a lot more confident now.


(P.S. Just about due to 'kick some arse' in a (more advanced) comp.?) ;) .... please ... stretch your boundaries even further.

Thanks TBLover, there is never a dull moment with Drifter! He is a lot of hard work for not much reward but we are learning a lot together :)

First comp for the year is the last weekend in March so we will do a couple of associate prelim tests and see how we go.

oooohhh to have legs like yours morgen_88.

Great pics and you look fantastic so does Drifter.

Looking great morgan!

You've inspired me to get my OH out to take some piccies too, like he used to do in the olden days. No, now I think about it, my kids are more reliable, at home more and able to use my camera. I guess my OH is becoming obsolete! Nah, he will be handy when I head up Qld way to look at my next horse - he's a Queenslander and speaks the lingo.

Good luck in your upcoming tests and I hope Drifter starts giving more than he's taking. The two of you look the part.

Thanks rmjens. Where are you getting your next horse from? Does OH know it yet...? :D
How is your bridle wearing?
