Dear Brain
We were making standards from two by fours  The base was the standrd  Four
shor two by fours our of the three foot pair of two by fours supported  at
the bottowm by a spacer between the two uprights and one short , one lng
angled two by four to make the cup.  These jumps were useful for
supporting the x and when the horse developed, the culd by set up in a
course of fences at two foot six which is the standard for working hunter
over  fences.  These jumps were very prtable and lasted many years.
 Oh I think the two upright pieces were only less thatn two foot six.
Our jumper lessons are progressing very well and now have the pony up to
two foot six. She is finally starting to put a little effort into the
jump. My horse does not jump and the hind legs cannot make the physical
effort and stay sound.  We just came back froma lovely hack, done entirely
at the walk, with lots of solcializing  because there wer few bugs and we
did not have to move fast.
Must get the trusty guide dog out as he is very enthusiastic in this
cooler weather.
