It wouldn't be Hawaii without a rainbow in the background.
Here are a couple firsts for Klein. These were all when we lived in Hawaii. The picture above is one of her first times schooling a 3' oxer, albeit a very narrow one.
This picture below is her VERY first time schooling a 2'3" vertical. She was five in this picture. My leg is killing me in these pics! As Denny would say, it was wandering off to buy illegal drugs in most of these pics! I have pictures from the first time she ever schooled a cross rail, I will have to find them. They are on my hard drive that hasn't been unpacked yet.
Baby's first 2'3" vertical.
Here is the FIRST time she jumped 3', EVER. She was six here. I remember setting the tripod up on this day. Again, lower leg, out to see the street pharmacist. Thankfully the both of us have a lot more education now than we did in these pictures!
Baby's first 3' fence!
This was probably her second gymnastic line at 3'.
When I knew 3' was not going to be an issue for her.
Working on a one stride.
Flat school with Mount Kaala on the north shore in the background.
First gymnastic school with a bounce, she was in a rope halter in this picture.
The line right before I raised that fence to 3' for the first time.
We've come a long way. It's fun to look back at random points in our journey together.
