Who Mystic will strive to be like...

Whenever people see Mystic or hear about him (which everyone who knows me gets to hear about him!) they all ask me "well what are you going to do with him" as in like wow I thought you jumped and did dressage or something, what in the world would you do with a short draft pony? Whenever I tell them that we compete in dressage (quite well actually!) and are just beginning to do some eventing people dont believe that he will be able to do it. So our proof is here: Klein mare- the jumping Perch!
Even though Klein is a lot taller than Mystic in general they have the same draft body style and guess what? She is going to compete at TRAINING LEVEL eventing this year! How cool is that?! You never see drafts out eventing around here so it will be tons of fun taking Mystic. We have the dressage part down for BN at least now its just the jumping part we need to refine this summer. Through XC schooling last summer we did find out that he has some pretty good hops when he wants to!
Example:
how cute he is? Tucking his little knees up to his chin!
He already does ditches, up banks, down banks, and the water complex! He never even looked at the ditches or the banks (and only took a little bit to get in the water his first time going and went in right away second time!). We kept the jumps little (the height of the log in picture) because of his age but over this coming summer hope to have him jumping all the BN fences! I also plan to take him to some derbys/one days in the beginning of the summer starting at intro level and hopefully doing a BN one! I cant wait for the summer!
