Hunter jumper quarter horse?

This is my 10 year old quarter horse. She is 15.2 or 15.3. I want to show her in hunter jumpers. Sorry We could NOT get her to look forward.

You might not get her to look forward but you could have stood with the camera film (or image) plane parallel to her and opposite her hip. You were standing opposite her front and about 25 degrees angled to her. As a result, critique of her is going to be unfair or inaccurate.

Most horses are fine with doing low levels of jumping.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

What Elana said...you are standing near her head...you need to be at the middle of her barrel. Get some to hold her for you....and that person needs to be out at the end of the leadline some, and getting her attention to keep her head straight.

And just by looking at this pic, when I look at ANY pics, my eyes instantly go to the horse's feet and legs first. She needs farrier work on those front feet. She has absolutely no heel, way to much toe, which is putting undue flexion on her pasterns.

And about her hooves, I have only had her long enough for one trim. It will take multiple trims for her to be okay.

^ good, tell the trimmer to leave the heel and not rasp it down. I truly would love to see a better pic!
