I don’t plan on actually jumping Eli for real until November, but there was a schooling show at the barn over the weekend and the jumps were low and looked so cute. I couldn’t resist pointing him a couple to see how rusty we are. We are a bit rusty, but also a bit enthusiastic. I think Eli misses jumping as much as I do.
One time we thwacked one.
That shifted the little camera, but he picked up his feet the next time.
Also, I got a new helmet — not sure how obvious that is from the video. Apparently GPAs are the only ones that fit my head shape both in circumference and at the crown. I am not ready to give up my CO yet, but sadly the Trauma Void pretty consistently gave me a headache on the top of my head that would last a few hours. So it fit at the brim, but not at the top. Even without putting my hair up. I didn’t notice this about the fit until recently, since Eli got injured only a little while after I bought the Trauma Void, so I hadn’t worn it consistently yet.
