You see, they've been casually hanging out by the side of the ring since I moved Lucy to this barn. We've walked past them to get to one of the fields we ride in on numerous occasions. She's come so far over fences this summer that I thought to myself today that it would be a perfect time to put the barrels and the jumping together.

I asked Kenny to make the poles a vertical, so she'd basically be jumping the same height as the barrels themselves. Again, she went over this without any problems:
I was like, wow this is going incredibly well! So we put the barrels together and this was the result:
|"I've never seen those barrels before in my LIFE!" *emergency brake*|
We also jumped the 3' vertical a few times. We started with it at 2'6" and she jumped it textbook perfectly:
Then Kenny bumped it up:
|"lock and load!"|
|"wow there, killer!"|
After all this, we went out in the field and had a nice little hack:
Whatta good girl!
