After the excitement of getting the jumps out, I finally got the chance to use some of my birthday presents (from March!).
First I had a wall jump for the first time. It’s a great design and fits neatly over a straw bale.
It might be meant for the ponies but the first jump belonged to the dog.
When I did get to jump it with Galahad I was fully expecting him to try to run out so I set up some guide poles but he actually popped over it with no trouble at all. I think my face shows how astonished I was.
The wall is double sided so of course we had to jump it both ways. This time Galahad did run out at our first attempt but as usual it was because I didn’t keep my eyes up.
I also got some pole sleeves which just needed trimming and sliding on. As always, my Dad came in very useful.
Once again I looked down at the jump and Galahad ran out. After that he jumped very well but I really must work on looking up!
As you can see, there were enough trimmings to make an extra interestingly coloured pole.
We had a great time playing with the jumps and I am looking forward to using them more. It is good to get Galahad jumping as many different things as possible but apart from that it is fun!
