Eventing is amazing
! It takes a lot of guts but equally it's a ton of fun. And, you HAVE to cross-train, because you need jumping, dressage, and galloping. So it suits people [and horses] who like to have a lot of variety.
Thank you :) I didn't train my old fella, you'd hope though that he would have nice form given that that jump is pretty huge. The front standard is about a 5'6" standard, the back is 4' [the actual jump is around 3'3" to 3'4"], and it's 4'8" wide.
I shared the photo because if my boy can jump like that with a VERY long back and poor hind end [and similar front half, neck set and overall balance] then your boy can physically do the same or better with the right training and attitude.
