Simon is a 10 year old appendix from Alota Gator Bait. He has always been an amazing jumper but the past few years (3-4) he has been left basically completely out of work. I used to get on him every now and then for a quick walk trot but then he had two back to back abscesses, then his feet were left undone for WAY too long (see pics in my other thread on hoof health) now he has shoes on and he is finally sound. I am going to walk him bareback tomorrow and were going to get back into work SLOWLY but I'm wondering when we start jumping, are his pasterns too long? He was a jumper before I got him but I don't want to do anything that would hurt him.
Excuse his horrid feet, I tried a new farrier and IT DODNT WORK OUT
