Well he is already 10, the vet says he's perfectly safe to jump, he has been "trained" up to 18 inches prior. He has no issues when we do jump, and we only jump as high as 2'6"-2'9" at max anyways right now to work on his technique. We have already seen him free jump on his sale video, and he needs as much muscle and experience as we can get on him before I leave for college in a year. We are on a time crunch but taking him as slow as he needs. And at lower heights/flat work he becomes bored and gets lazy. He doesnt enjoy it. I appreciate your concern, and I understand your reasoning, but I do believe my trainer and I know what we are doing. :) This thread is not supposed to be about his training anyhow. Im only trying to figure out his breeding! Hahaha if you want to talk training then I will start a training thread or you may pm me. But this is not the place :)
