TBs for All Part 3: You might as well jump

Bruce wanted to try the horses over a few jumps (what he would do if he were evaluating a horse for purchase). The horse rescue organizer/manager reluctantly agreed to let Bruce tutor the riders/horses in jumping -- they started with a single cavaletti and quickly worked their way to a vertical. For those of you just tuning in, these are just off the track horses. They show they're game for anything -- jumping into the crowd, no less. Harv would not have handled this as well as they did...

Stay tuned for Part 4: The Oxer!


  1. I've found that TBs seem to have a natural aptitude for jumping. The 2 TBs I've owned took to jumping very readily with little hesitation.

  2. Oh, I just LOVED this part! How cool to see horses taking their very first jumps, and SO WELL, too! Can't wait 'til tomorrow for the rest. I was almost in tears I was so excited for these two. What GOOD boys.
