I poured at PASO ROBLES HORSE PARK during the speed jumping event!

I don’t know much about show jumping – except that is scares and thrills me.

However, since my workplace winery (Hope Family Wines, Austin Hope Winery) knows I’m into horses, they sent me to pour at a big jumping event at a local horse park (The Paso Robles Horse Park).

There were 1200 horses entered over the course of the week long show.  I saw gorgeous trailers and portable stalls everywhere.  Bright, white tents smatttered about with people milling and gathering.

We were pouring near the vendors – and I kept drooling over some GORGEOUS saddles, which they probably didn’t appreciate….

Anyway, I didn’t take enough photos because I was busy.  But below is one pic.

We poured during the speed jumping, which I gather is not about form but about how fast you do the round.  These jumps were TALL.  Some looked to be as tall or taller than I am (5’4″), but I’m not sure because our tent was slightly higher than the footing.

It was thrilling for sure!

I heard that most of the riders were trainers – as this was an OPEN class.  Our tent filled up and people were very excited to watch!
