Oh Boy!!

Java loves to jump. Loves loves loves to jump (me too) We've been amusing ourselves with logs on the trails, wood chip piles at home near the patio... and Mr. Java's Mom made a couple of jumps for us this past weekend. We started low, still SO FUN!!! We'll work out way up to the higher one (not shown), but for now, we're being good. Java and I did a warm up in the paddock, then headed out to the fern path. We will eventually have many jumps around the property.

I set up the jumps:
















I call out to the barn for Java to get ready:
















My audience (as I'm singing the superman theme song to them all):
















And a little video. OK, so he's better at making jumps than using the camera, so below we have one jump and then video of his boots, but I'm not going to complain, we have a couple of jumps!! We love the jumps!! Just wait until we start jumping a stone wall or two, Mr. Java's Mom will get the video right that time! (not going to be tomorrow):

Looks like fun! Nice to have a horse that loves to jump, particularly if you can have your jumps out in a natural setting.

You two looked lovely together! Jumping as one.

Funny boots and leaves! lol!

I look forward to seeing more jumping videos in the future. The boots just add a little comic relief :)

What a great setting for some jumps - out on the trails! Jumping is fun but jumping while just out on the trails is the most fun!
