it's a bird, it's a kite, its...

...a flying horse! 

"I'm suppose to fly over the poles, right?"

Cierra's first attempt at going over a pole was too funny! She thought she needed to jump up high to get over it, silly girl. Only took her once to figure out all she had to do was lift her feet, a little. Here are some better training photos from the same day.

Funny girl! Better for her to figure that out on the ground than under saddle- that's really hard to ride when they do that.

Whoa! Nellie!
How cute!
I had a horse who used to jump cross poles at the height they met the standard. It was quite a surprise the first time I jumped a little cross pole and he jumped twice the height!

I love this picture, it's so cute!! Sounds like your husband is doing really well with her (and enjoying it). I love raising horses. It's my favorite thing ever seeing them grow and mature into self-confident and loving horses. And, that's where I excel, working with the youngsters. So much fun working with a fresh, young mind! I love your kitty too! What a character he is...and he likes showers!! Too cool.
