Bow's Jumping Adventures 07/09/2011
Over the past six months one of my dreams have been to train my ex-broodmare (BL Hooten Hollows Bow Tie) how to jump.
My dad and I decided to create our own jump out of PVC pipes and wood. It cost us less than $15 to make. Much more cost effective than buying an actual jump.
I began working Bow in May/June over wooden ground poles and the over the jumps in July. In about five days she worked herself up to our current maximum of 20''. I am thoroughly proud of her.
My goal over the next couple years is to show her at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines which is an hour away from where I live.
