Honestly, before I would consider stressing him by jumping, I would spend a good 60 days fattening him up and working him on the flat to build up some muscle. Work on collection to help with neck and top lines, and a lot of trotting, especially on hills, to build his back end - collection will help there as well.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
