Oxer!

Oxer – A horse jump or fence with vertical poles and another pole spread out a foot or two away that is usually higher than the first set of poles.

I have so much to say about Keira and Remi and riding and jumping and Amara getting married and moving to Florida with Seth and the Air Force and us finding a new trainer and and and and.

But it’s Monday and all of that will have to wait.

So I leave you with this . . . Keira and Remi training over an oxer . . .

Their oxer was a 2′ vertical, spaced by tires, 2′ 3″ vertical. Notice the markings on our ruler jump – Keira is over 4 feet in the air on a young 1,000 pound horse.

As a parent, this is NOT easy to watch, and this is a relatively low jump.

See that 36″ mark? That’s her goal before high school.

I’m gonna need more whiskey.

  1. That is unbelievable. That would be scary. She certainly looks confident. Something to be very proud of–love the picture. (Great shot!)

    Love

    It actually looks from the ruler jump that they already cleared 36″+!! Granted Remi’s back feet need to also clear but it’s looking good. He is such a beautiful horse and she looks like a professional rider. Love…Mom
