Here my story: I've been jumping/competing for a few years when I was younger but haven't been even close to a jump in probably 10 years.
My gelding, Timber, a 12 year old QH/TB cross, has, as far as I know, never jumped. He's a western horse all the way and loves cattle.
For a few months now I was thinking about trying some jumps on him. A friend brought some of her old ones for me to pratice with and here we go:
The second "jumping sesson" in a week, and I found out that Timber is bored with little jumps and only starts to pick up his feet when the bar is at 2 1/2 feet or more...
I can't describe how great it felt to jump again. So concidering he's a newbie and I'm rusty, what do you guys think?
