    Tango is a nine-year-old, 13.3 hand (just a hair under 14 hands) Arabain/Mustang/Quarter Horse/Thoroughbred gelding.

    In the first link I really like how much your horse is tucking.

    They've got nice jumps, very scopey with good body positions. Very nice ponies. However... when you're free jumping you should always have a ground pole so your horse knows when to jump. I didn't see one-maybe you had one and I missed it-but you really should have one if you didn't.

    In all of the photos he is jumping very flat; but that has a lot to do with the way you've constructed the fences. The low, broad fence was qute scary and encourages a long, flat arc - pretty much the opposite of what you want.

    Your pony seems like a very willing, athletic and able soul; if you constructed the fences to encourage jumping round and from appropriate distances (ground lines would certainly be a step in the right direction) it would be easier to judge jumping form.

    I too noticed he is having a hard time findinghis "spot" to take off. He tucks nice and with a vertical I think you would see him round.

    Free jumping does not always equate to under saddle jumping.

    Wow he's quite the beautiful horse. But like some others arew saying he is very flat with his back, normally you'd want a really nice arch with his back. And that will come with training
