Sara Gumbiner and Po­laris

Practical Horseman - - Cross Country With Jim Wofford -

Sara Gumbiner and Po­laris, shown here at the B el­e­ment of 15AB, the Fallen Trees, are about half­way around and just start­ing to think that maybe, just maybe, they are up to a four-star chal­lenge. When you are the only rookie in the field, you might get the feel­ing of be­ing a lit­tle lonely at your first four-star. For­tu­nately for Sara, she brought a good friend along. Po­laris is Ir­ish, which tells you all you need to know about his cross-coun­try at­ti­tude. Sara is fol­low­ing my own ca­reer path— find a good horse, get good coach­ing, bend over, put your hands down and ride like you are go­ing to live for­ever. This pair had some mi­nor mis­takes, but they were not se­ri­ous and noth­ing that can’t be fixed.
