Update! Cleave is down in Waco at the show with my trainer. She rode him yesterday in the .85m and .95m to be sure he wasnt spooky, he jumped around boldly but is spending a LOT of time in the air again (over jumping), but went clear. He is going strong but is nervous about the in gate and all the other horses, nothing bad, but he just doesnt seem "comfortable", no bad behaviors though. Several people have commented to her that they didnt even recognize him when they saw him because he looks so good now. And she rode him in the .95m and 1.00m today and he was fantastic again, but over jumping still. Not a bad thing! I like that he is being so careful! But he's slow as is across the ground, such a long stride and doesnt turn tight yet, lol, so id like if he didnt spend so much time in the air XD hahaha things are looking good and im going down to join her today at noon!

Nice that he's going well
Be careful not to push him too hard - over jumping is sometimes a sign that a horse is for some reason afraid of hitting the pole and when they reach a height that they don't feel able to clear without giving it that extra space they start refusing
You could try using some ground poles and low spreads to encourage him to stretch himself and push forwards as well as upwards

Its normal for him. When he feels nervous he converts it into overjump. Haha its his way of dealing with the situation. At home he jumps fine, and usually by friday at shows he's jumping fine again. :)

Sorry its taken so long! Update! Cleave and I competed in 8 classes from friday-sunday of the Waco show... We placed in all but 1 class! (i fell because I jumped up his neck). There were 19 competitors across the board in all 8 of our classes! He and I are NOT the fastest team (hes a lumbering tank, lol), but we can leave the rails up! And that worked to our advantage as everyone elses smaller faster horses felt fatigue from their owners running their tails off. In the 1.00-1.05m Low Ch/Ad classes we competed in (2), we placed 6th in the 1.00m, and 4th in the 1.05! In our 1.00m classes (3) we got blue ribbons! (if you are clean and under time you got a blue). In our FIRST EVER High Adult classes at 1.10m we were DQ in one round due to my fall, and 5th in the second 1.10m round!! Then in Cleave's first ever classic (1.05m) we placed 8th out of 19!!!! So so so proud of my baby!!! His 4th show EVER and ribboning in every round (i didnt fall in)!!! Lol!!! So excited for the next show! Pics to come!

First one is in our 1.00m class, the next two are 1.10m classes :) And a final pic of our ribbon collection from the 3 days! So blessed!!! And I know, his form is crap over the navy and green oxer. He felt it needed a bit of extra flair. Hahaha no explanation!

Didn't have time to read the WHOLE thread but if you think he's from Florida you can always post a Craigslist ad with a pic asking if anyone know about him in the Florida farm and garden classifieds.

Hakuna Matata!

If you're still on the hunt to solve the mystery, do you think there'd be any value in following up with the vet who signed off on his papers? Vets tend to be excellent with documentation...at least the ones I know. There could be additional information from this vet to be had and it may be worth a phone call. Just a thought...super interesting story! Gorgeous horse.
