Jumping into Contention

parade Jessie Halabura, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and Lynn Johnson strut their stuff in the award winners’ parade following the “Jeopardy” Jumping part of the Battle of the Breeds at Spruce Meadows. Team Appaloosa is currently in second place! Friday is driving and barrels. The competition concludes on Saturday with a trail class.

In case you’re wondering (as I was) about Jeopardy Jumping, it’s a course setup with different point values assigned to various jumps. Competitors can choose their own route and can earn 400 points if they make it cleanly over all the jumps. Then, riders have the option of attempting the Jeopardy Jump worth another 100 points. The bad news is that if missed or refused, the competitor takes a 100 point deduction. For some reason, most riders seemed aggressive and greedy this year and went for the additional points. Only one or two didn’t make it. Team Appaloosa did very well over the jumps and did a great job showing off our breed for the crowd.
