Guaranteed Gold 3 year old son Free Jumping 4'9" Video~
I work at Dry Creek Equestrian Center as assistant trainer. We recently are preparing to put our stallion through RSPI and we have a video of him free jumping 4'9" with ease. Thought some people would be interested to see some of Guaranteed Golds offspring! His name is Xerxes aka Duke. He's 3 years old, VERY smart and this was only his second day free jumping.
Well, let's hope you aren't working TOO hard on it. I know stallion tests require fairly large jumps on youngsters, but they don't require you to jump youngsters to death. Our stallions did max 3'3 while schooling free jumps for the inspection. If they do this, they will be able to go higher without a problem. Let's just hope this horse's growth plates and knees will stand up to this. Once or twice....OK. More...questionable,IMO
Can't see the video as I'm on my mobile. What is the height requirement for the inspection?
I hate seeing youngsters jump any higher than "necessary," so much strain on young joints... Posted via Mobile Device
