As Katchi was pretty much relagated to walking, there were a lot of jumps in Aiken we had planned to jump, but didn't. So here are a few snapshots of jumps not jumped in Aiken. Don't they just make you want to go?! It's not too soon - start planning for 2013 now!!!
Full Gallop Farm:
Full Gallop Farm - Preliminary water. Run through the water, up the mound, over the boat, back down the mound, and through the water again - Katchi would have loved this!
Okay, this one I'm glad we didn't have to jump! In the woods, off a turn, through a house, into the dark, and over...
...one HUGE table! Shared by Prelim and Intermediate courses. Wow.
Sandy Hills Farm:
Here is the incredible schooling cross country course just across the street from where Silva was located. Talk about a playground!
Phillip Dutton's farm in Bridle Creek has the most lovely huge jumping field - here is video of Mara Dean schooling a young horse with Phillip.
I didn't catch the name of this farm, but it's about 5 miles down the road from Bridle Creek - talk about the perfect galloping track for event horses! This video shows several of the True Prospect horses doing their conditioning work. Just looks like heaven!
