Talking 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. Hes 3 years old, VERY smart and this was only his second day free jumping.

It works.

It is not the most complimentary video with him sucking back and taking those short strides right in front of the jump.

You might want to consider modifying the jump spacing before you try this again.

I think a nicely done not so high jump would show him off more than being able to brag that he can free jump something large but not in the best way.

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

Are you putting him in the 30 or 70 day test?

Yes. They are great at jumping aren't they? (Well, most of them...)

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...

Hes fantastic, but I'd love to see him stay that way. Too much too soon is not good.
