Since you have mentioned that about his legs hanging, I went and looked at some other jumping pictures to see if he has done that in all of them or if there were just certain times when he did it. It appears to be a habit he does when he is bored or tired from what I can guess. The cross country pictures I showed were taken during a clinic I did with him. I went and looked at the pictures from the beginning of the clinic and he appeared to pick up his legs much more.... So, then I come to the thought of I wonder if it is due to him being bored because of being jumped over the same jumps/types of jumps (in the case of stadium jumping) and so he was becoming lazy and careless. In that case, what do you recommend I do to fix it? I plan on jumping him on the lunge line or loose maybe sometime this week to see if that is the case. (He hasn't been jumped in a year so if it was due to boredom or carelessness, I imagine he will probably pick his feet up nicely and if not, then I'm guessing there is probably another cause.) Here's some pictures that have been taken during warm ups....he seems to be holding his feet up much better. Please let me know what you think and if you think this may be due to boredom.

hes cute !

to me it looks like he hangs his legs when he is unbalanced. in the first pictures you posted it looks like hes hanging his legs over the jumps that he really got close to.
