Cool A free jumping session with Harry

So it's me again with my pony Harry.
I've started loose lunging him or free jumping or whatever you call it. He now knows where I put the jump and whenever he feels like it he just goes and jumps it.
Today I put the jump up, I dunno it must be 70-80cm.
Don't worry he chose to run into it I never forced him he just takes himself off to the other end of the arena, turns and canters at it and if he changed his mind he could run out either side but he never did. This pony never jumped before he came to me and now it's his favourite thing to do, he can't get enough!
Anyway here is a couple of photos of him jumping, he has an interesting jump, he can jump close to the jump where he should be he generally chooses to jump it and land it as far away from the jump as he can when he is loose but he does it perfectly when someone is on his back.
I said in my last thread I would put pictures up of him training, he is still pretty green, sorry for the big photos but they are from my facebook so are uncropped.

That is so cool! I love it that he heads for the jumps all by himself.
