Anonymous said: do you ride with a lot of big name trainers?

idk. I train with Ken Whelihan. He qualified for the 1992 Olympics and worked for Barney Ward back in the day. He’s close friends with McLain. I rode with Candice King for a week during my EAP training session. I rode with Peter Leone when I bought one of his horses. Other than that, i dont really know haha :)

2’3 is not 2’9
2’9 is not 3’3
3’3 is not 3’9

Here are three pictures of my horse jumping:

People who jump frequently can tell that the first picture is about 4’0, the second is about 3’3, and the last is about 2’9. This also means that people can tell when others are lying about the height they’re jumping. Stop rounding up the height of your jumps just to “impress” others, because there is nothing wrong with jumping lower jumps. If you are jumping at a certain level, be proud of yourself! It doesn’t matter if Sally is 13 years old and jumping 4’9. It doesn’t matter if Suzy’s horse is 7 years old and jumping 3’6. Everyone moves at their own pace. Everyone has to jump crossrails and 2’ verticals before they can get to the 3’6 and 4’0 oxers :)
