What a pretty horse. And a very nice jumper. I think the dressage definitly benefited him to be such a nice mover over the jumps. Good luck with it.

I love your pink hair too.

Wow. He is beautiful! Yes, he looks as though he will become a great jumper.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

He certainly seems to enjoy it! Beautiful horse. I love his floaty trot.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I just had to add that your horse is GORGEOUS!! I really liked how you make him come back under control before you let him go over another jump. That will really help him learn that even though jumping is fun, he still has to listen. You'd be surprised at how many people don't do that....
Your dressage base certainly seems to have helped his form! Keep up the good work!
