Awwww, he's SO cute! My only advice would be to get your heels down more and get more bend in your knees so you have a better centre of balance over the saddle - you're standing a bit too much and leaning forward which could end badly if he slams the brakes on. For him, I would do a lot of grid work to help tighten his knees a bit! I always LOVE seeing breeds do things that people always go "Oh they CAN'T!" You guys look like an amazing team!

Cuuute, I would have to say.. Shorten your stirrups and put those heels down. Its 1:30 in the morning and I have to get up at 5am. So I'll end it there. Very cute though.

Nice job, love the release over the jumps. Beautiful horse. Looks like a super match for you! He does not clear the jumps by much, think he would put some more effort into jumping once you go higher! Looks like he has what it takes :0)

Thanks guys! I need more tips on how to not be a hunch back during a jump/2 point. If am walking or trotting around anywhere in my 2 point, its perfect. But when I have to think about more stuff when I jump, my equitation goes out the window.

My mom is scared to death because I'm jumping this high. He's only 14.3hh. So you really think he can go higher? Thats awesome. Oh and by the way he is for sale...

Also any more ideas on jumping equipment... All I have are buckets and fence posts.
