XC video

Without further ado...

Many thanks again to Ride On Video for this wonderful service!

Okay okay, so we were not nearly so forward as we really could have been.  Going down to a trot was his idea but I didn't object - it was his first time and I just wanted him to be have a great experience. I finally asked him to move out (and actually canter) for the last 3 jumps. He very willingly obliged, so next time I'll be asking  I asked him to canter earlier on, if not for the whole course. A few greenie moments but overall I am so pleased with HIS EARS!!! Forward and alert and happy - he's gonna be a XC rockstar.


  1. OMG. How cute is he? He's looking really good and athletic! I loved his thought process for the first couple of jumps and how the ditch came out of nowhere (to him)! You guys looked like you were in a nice rhythm during the second half. Thank you so much for posting these videos. I don't think a lot of people would be willing to share the good, the bad and the ugly, but you're going to look back and laugh at these one day and I find them so encouraging!

  2. That's a lovely video! He looks happy and forward :)
