I discovered this weekend on my trail ride that Phebes likes to jump! We had pre-trotted a section of trail so I knew the way was clear and the footing good...so the next lap we stepped up into a canter and she jumped it so effortlessly that she never missed stride! It was low, but low is good. I'm wanting to build a "safe" jump of about eighteen inches just to change out our schooling to involve something a little different. I have some old cedar posts I can use for the cross member. I thought about doing a criss cross thing kind of like the old rail fences but shorter. Off to travel the web and see what other folks are doing. ~E.G.
