Pony Club Camp, 2014

Camp was wonderful, and I loved spending so much time with Kip, who was spectacular. All our cross-country rides were a joy. Here are some of the things we jumped this year, in no particular order:

This jump is called The Rock Logster. With the log off the ground, and space between the rock and the log, the space between the two can be more challenging for the horse to see the takeoff.

The Pirate Ship is basically a table, with lots of distractions.

This jump is narrower than the standard width, and at max height.

This was our first brush jump, and Kip did not understand he didn't need to clear all the little fronds sticking up -- so this jumped much more like Training height!  Woo!

Gallop up the hill, jump the logs, gallop back down. Easy, right?

The Blue barn going up hill -- it jumps a little better on the right.

Stone wall, frame

The Picture Frame, between the two trees, is more of a distraction for the rider, rather than the horse. It is really just a little coop - just steer to the center.

The brush just makes this one "looky". But it was no problem for us.

The holes through this jump can make a horse just fixate on looking through it, instead of deciding on getting over it. The water in the background is also a distraction.

The face of this is a little ramped, to make it more inviting.  It is still really pretty big.

This is a training line combination we jumped -- up hill to the first log, bending to the second - gallop into dappled shade, which is quite a challenge in and of itself.
