Casey, Vin absolutely HATES jumping. We tried a bit of free jumping with him, he flung himself over these jumps that weren't even a foot tall. He acted like I was trying to get him over a 5ft. tall fence..lol. So I took him off his line to see if he would just follow me over the jump.....at least step over it, but nope, he stopped and stared at it for a long time and then just walked around it to where I was standing. Wish I had it on video.

Yeah any arab or arab cross. Sounds like a pretty well rounded horse. Yeah they must have something againist it! Laddy the second time I rode him cantered up to an endgate stopped then from a complete stop jumped a 4 foot endgate with me on him! With him he is a very talented jumper correct form just a trickster on refusing when he gets bored with the jumps, lol.

I mostly trail ride with my mare, looking to get into competitive trail rides and endurance. She could trot all day, stop for a drink, and trot some more.

Have done some ranch sorting with her and will be trying team penning this summer. She loves to chase the cows....which becomes a problem when you have to guard the gate and all she wants to do is chase the cow away, even if its the one you're supposed to be letting through!

and she LOVES to jump. Even little six inch deep, barely a foot wide, DRY ditches. Way to much work to just step over them, we must jump them instead! And she acts all proud of herself afterwards, I just smile and shake my head.

I ride trails mostly, driving with a two person cart, jump small jumps- natural ones on the trail and ones in the ring, have been known to western game on occasion with my Arab/American Saddlebred, Joey. He has proven to be very versatile and has gained a lot of muscle and experience since I purchased him from his first owner a little over 4 years ago. The older lady I purchased him from showed him in WP, EP, Arab classes, Saddlebred classes, and driving classes. This Saturday, I will be introducing him to team penning. I don't think he's ever done this before. I think he'll do ok as he loves to run with the deer we meet on the trail. Crossing my fingers!

Rode my Arabs a lot on trail and one mare in particular took me many many miles including across my home state, 250 hard hilly miles in ten days with grace. Gotta love their heart and endurance.
