My paint horse just turned 4. We are in dressage training, together. I want to start jumping him. But idk when. I know its personal preference. But I just don't know when to start him. I would like to be able to take him to a few schooling eventing shows next summer when he's five if we work really hard in the next year.
But I want to know. When do you start your horses jumping? And how are they holding up now? What general guidelines do you follow age wise? Like what age and how high. I know its based on the horse. But I just want a general idea.
I just want the best for him and I want opinions from more than one party. I.e. You guys, trainer, friends etc.etc.
