My Paint mare loves to jump. =] It only happens if we find a suitable log on the trail, and otherwise, we do dressage work.

That jumping pic kind of scares me, Cloudsmystique

My beef-cake of a quarter horse and I are doing dressage and will hopefully start trying a bit of jumping soon too :)

Quarter horses SHOULD be very versatile but lots of people still assume they aren't. Especially they very solid, bulldoggy types like mine

Haha. I'm guessing the person who wrote the article doesn't know a whole lot about horses or jumping (it kind of sounds that way, anyway), and chose a bad picture. I mean, if he's jumping four feet and winning versatility championships and horse of the year, he can't be that bad.

I would love to have met this guy. I like his way of thinking.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I have an 18 hd. Draft cross gelding and we do a lot of trail riding although at times we're vertically challenged by low hanging branches! He does a great job though :) We're also doing dressage which my instructor says is a major feat for a horse as big as he is. He loves cross country jumping!
