    Bear free jumping up 1'6"-3'6" {Critique Please}

    These are pretty old, but I am just so curious (plus I saw another free jumping thread... so... ;] ). What do you guys think about Bear? Does he have potential to jump undersaddle higher then 3' (that is the highest he has shown and such)? Just give me your feed back, harsh or not. :p

    ^^ 1'6"

    ^^ 2'3"

    ^^ 2'6"
    3'3 #2.jpg
    ^^ 3'3"
    3'3 #3.jpg
    ^^ 3'3" {He trotted up to this one}
    3'3 #4.jpg
    ^^ 3'3"

    Bear is 14 years old, 17.1 hands, full TB (trying to track down is reg. Name/info. Tattoo number is Y44207). Most of his training is in HJ. Has done "A" shows at 3' and was always in the ribbons. He wont be doing that again for another 2+ years. XD

    Yeah, and the 3'3" jump is kind of a mix up between 3'3" and 3'6". :p One end was higher then the other. "/ Sorry about that guys!

    I think he does have potential to be jumping higher, some of the photo's he does look like he could tuck his front leg's in abit more.
    He also look's very nice jumping
    I do hope to hear if you guy's will be trying to jump higher under saddle.

    Its a little hard to tell when they are jumping smaller jumps as he looks as though he isnt trying very hard though despite that it looks like he could easily go much higher and I think over largers jumps he will show very nice style (his jumping improves as the jumps are raised). Challenge him over some bigger jumps next time then you can really get and idea of what he can do, he looks very capable =D

    I'm not an expert, but he's not really tucking his front legs up under him, but you can only try and see if he'll jump 3'+ when someone is riding him!

    Agree but it looks like he isnt because he knows he doesnt have to. My horse can jump but over smaller jumps he doesnt bother really.
    Like here he trotted into it so he knew he had to pick up his knees http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...azy_1/120m.jpg

    But like here he can easily get over without having to pick up his knees much at all haha

    No comment on his jumping, but I looked up his tatoo. That's not his number, Y44207 goes to a Bay Mare named Homecoming Court...

    I'll try finding him for you. Does he have any white markings? Be specific if he does ;)
