J is for Jumping.
Classic novelist William Faulkner said this about equestrian jumping:
"There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it is the risk, the gamble. In any event it's a thing I need."
Personally, I used to enjoy a bit of jumping. Lately, however, I haven’t practiced much jumping, primarily for health reasons that upset my equilibrium. But the thought brings back some fun memories.
And my kids love to jump our horses over X’s, fences and more.
Do you agree?
Do you love to jump? Does your horse enjoy leaping over obstacles? Do you jump your horse in an arena, or do you prefer cross-country?
