So about a week ago, maybe a little more than a week ago, because all it's done here is rain lately... I jumped Twister. My bestie came over to be my trainer and take pics. Let me tell you right now he was absolutely awesome! He jumps anything you point him at. Never knocks a pole down.... unless I get super unbalanced and start popping him in the mouth. Which is why I mostly jump in a hackamore. That and he doesn't usually drag me to the jumps in the hackamore which he almost always does in a bit. And for the record, this is a horse that used to always be ridden in this evil looking bit and that always always had shoes on. Now I can ride him bitless and he's been barefoot for 6 months and jumping over 2feet and is sound. I'm thrilled!!!
Gotta love that face!
And Saturday after the Twister drama was the Preakness. What an awesome race! I have been betting on California Chrome all along. Ever since that amazing win in the Santa Anita. He could do it ya know....go all the way. I am hoping against hope. And that little horse, Ride On Curlin, we know his connection and my boyfriend used to gallop him as a 2 year old. I have proof because I know no one will believe me! I was so excited to see the big race he ran!
