    Horses that jump like that (knees down) usually are physically impaired from jumping safely by having poor conformation.

    Hmmm sad, and the third horse? That one seems to have a better jumping possition from what I see, with some good training shouldnt it get a good and safe base?

    Perhaps. Or if it has been made a bit nutz jumping it may never really calm down enough to be reliable. You CAN fry a horse's brain and then all they can think to do is to go fast and get over the jumps 'somehow.' You can work them.. take them back and get their flat work in line and then start over with caveletti and trotting poles.. low stuff and gymnastics to help the horse find its "spot."

    However, if they have fried brains from jumping too much too soon and insufficient flat work you may NEVER get them back.

    Seen it in horses. Seen it in dogs. This is why you need to take your time (not you personally.. but you generally) training an animal.. any animal.

    Yes, that is what I had thought of doing anyway c: I don't like rushing when training.
    If everything goes as expected ill see the last two horses Wednesday, ill tell you if they are the way you're saying, ill upload more photos and videos... anyway if the last horse doesnt have his brain fried XD, do you think heŽll work fine?

    Yes. Nice horse in the photos. He might get prettier in the air if he is backed down and started over filling in the holes in his education.

    I coudnt see a problem with horse 3, its an older horse and didnt appear to be rushing the fences and actually had a decent outline in the air
    The other two just looked like young horses (which they are) that still lack muscle, fitness and impulsion.
    If a horse gives a fence too much 'air' then its a good sign that when the fences start to go up and it can't give them that much room it will start to refuse
    I found a couple of pics of a one time neighbours daughter jumping a 13.2 pony they had. Notice the difference between her jumping a little practice fence in their paddock and the one take at a little show only three months later
    Also a pic of Next Milton, one of the UK's finest world class showjumpers - his forelegs were not exactly in perfect line in this shot
    A lot is also influenced by the approach to the fence and rider ability

    Yeah, I agree with you, jaydee, I think you can improove the way a horse jumps/acts with a good training(as you showed with your first two pictures) and I also thought the first two horses jumped like that more because they inexperience.
    I know its hard to tell from just a few photos, but from what you see, which do you think will be better? Looking more at their conformation than at the way and how much they jump.

    I think it would be irresponsible of me to suggest to you that you buy a horse of any sort - that doesnt mean I don't think you should buy one but not based on opinions from photos posted on a Forum. In the past when I've gone with people to give my opinion I know how well they ride, I see them ride the horse and I ride it myself and no way would I ever change on that policy
    Unless you are an experienced rider that knows how to bring on a young horse then you should go for a schoolmaster type that's already proven - doesnt have to be top level but jumping at the level you are capable of.
    I would suggest you take a trustworthy instructor/trainer with you and listen to their advice
    The young girl in those photos had been jumping at a good level for a long time and was very confident. The pony went on to do very well in working hunter and affiliated showjumping

    Advice is worth what you pay.......

    I gave you what I saw and you have to make up your own mind.. and keep in mind the first sentence AND that I charged nothing for my opinion.

    Elana your advice was really good, it oppened my eyes to things I hadnt seen, thank you hope you have more advice to me when I upload the photos and videos soon.

    Hahaha I cannot pay you with money, but you can check this tatiilange's deviantART gallery
    That's my art, and if you tell me what you want I can pay you with art<3
