Throwback Thursday: Video Edition

I had occasion over the weekend to parooze my public videos on YouTube. I wanted to share several of my favorites. Most feature Mikey, but a couple feature my little QH mare, Jasmine!

Bounce Grid: 2'3" crossrail, 2'6" vertical, 3' vertical (Circa 2002, Jasmine)

4 Skinnies, One Stride Apart (Circa 2004, Jasmine). I quickly hid the exercise from my instructor at the time because she would not approve.

Beginner Jumper 2'6" Class (9/20/2009, Mikey). First jumper show, first jumper class ever.

Hopeful Jumper 2'9" Class (9/20/2009, Mikey). I hit a forward groove and left some strides out at the end!

BN Steeplechase at Full Moon Farm's 1/4* 3 Day (6/28/2012, Mikey). Quite possibly my favorite experience with Mikey.

First XC trip at Novice. (7/15/2012, Mikey). Possibly my second favorite experience with Mikey.

Test Riding my Jaguar. (May 2013, Mikey). Fun Fact: This video was featured on a dressage blog that was explaining the differences between working, medium, and extended trot. Also note, the website owner didn't ask permission. (Which I would have happily provided).

And last, but not least, my highest scoring 3rd level test (7/23/2017, Penn). I'm pumped to see what this summer brings, because while there are good portions in this test, Penn is so much better now!

    1. Yea! I forgot about the early early ones, I was pumped to see them again!

  2. Aw I love the memories <3 those helmet cam videos with Mikey are some of my favorite too - I remember watching them when I was first starting blogging and eventing and feeling like "I wanna do thaaaattt" haha

    1. Whoa, does that mean you found them before I started blogging? Because I want to say you were well on your way in eventing by the time I started!

  3. Watched these again this morning cause they are just that awesome. ❤️ Those chestnut happy gallop ears!

    1. Love the happy chestnut gallop ears <3 <3 I am so glad I have helmet cam videos of him, it's almost like I can ride him again!
