XC #3 - Meadows of Moorpark

Exciting news - Hannah and I are entered for our first horse trial!! Its in 2 weeks at the beautiful Shepherd Ranch in Santa Ynez!

This past weekend we got a final cross country schooling in, at the Meadows of Moorpark.



Unlike our previous schoolings, this one as more of a supervised ride than a lesson. Hannah and I were off on our own and jumped whatever we wanted. They have a plethora of tiny jumps so it was the perfect opportunity for me to take it slow and only jump as high (low) as I felt comfortable. I didn't pressure myself, and my nerves stayed quite managed.

My wonderful husband came and took photos on his fancy new camera.





















It was a fabulous outing. I feel much better now about the upcoming horse trial.

  4. Hannah looks like so much fun! Maybe the secret to getting more horse photos is to get my husband a fun camera? He did a great job with the timing and I love how the jumps got progressively bigger. Excited for your HT!
