Does this really count as jumping?

Gerd is a big believer in cross training - every dressage horse should gallop in the fields and jump a little. So he set Eva the task of giving Claude and I jumping lessons while he was gone. It was pretty hilarious. Claude was a complete klutz the first lesson and got rather strong and flustered. Today was better. You can see how low our standard for "better" is in the clip.

And I also got to join a group lesson on a school pony. It has been 24 years (when I was pregnant with Anna) since I jumped anything. All in all, my body remembered the drill pretty well.

For want of a passport...

...the trip was a loss. Andrew flew to Miami two weeks ago to go on his annual music cruise. When he returned to the airport to fly back to Germany, he discovered his passport was missing. He had it
