Jumping for Joy

One of the great things about being a parent is seeing your child find a passion. Caroline's been riding for a number of years now, and it's great to see her loving it so much.

Look at her concentrating on her approach to the jump... (Tuey is wearing a mesh mask to protect his eyes from bothersome flies -- he's not doing this blindfolded.)

And she's over!

Luckily, I have a few more years before I have to worry about this sort of thing, which was going on in the next ring:


  1. Oh, she is showing such good form all ready! It wont be very long before she has ribbons lined up and you find yourself holding your breath during each of her events! Seeing your photos makes me miss having a horse...

  2. I have young nieces who ride and it is such a great activity, teaching responsibility and discipline along with the exhileration of the actual riding part. Caroline looks like a natural!
