Well his jumping height would really depend on the horse. If he can jump higher than feel free to jump higher but do it a little less often and go slow getting up to that height otherwise they get intimdated and start refusing lots.

I don't know what an ideal New Forest Pony should look like, so it's hard to make a comparison to the ideal. However, I think he is exceptionally handsome and well put togehter. He is cresty (thick neck) which is no doubt due to being proudcut (cut late). So, his hormones were there all during his growing up and developing. A think neck is hallmark for stallions.
You will want to watch his weight. Check to see if he has "butt pillows" on either side of the top of his tail. Know what I mean?
I really like him and think he will be the horse of a lifetime.

Here is what I see:
* short, thick neck
* upright shoulder angle
* long back with a weak loin
* the bottom neck attachment is no well defined (ie, weak chest)
* nutton withers
* nice, straight legs, with good bone
* nicely angled, short pasterns
* Hock angle looks good

Overall he looks like a very sturdy little pony.

Thanks everyone

SugarPlumLove yes we are building up the height very slowly and when I do start training him in summer he will do one day jump then hack then school then hack so only jumping one day a week :)

tinyliny firstly thanks for replying :) and yeah we're watching his weight hes lost quite a bit since those pictures where you couldn't even feel his ribs! haha but now hes almost perfect just slightly over but I think thats fine going into winter because he probably will drop it :)

Supermane I can see all your points and thank you for replying :) and yes I suppose his chest does look a little weak but I think the muscle has built up quite alot we've been trotting up and down a few hills out on hacks and had a cheeky gallop up a few (grass hills of course not on road) and yes he is very sturdy! as typhical with new forest ponies thats part of the reason why I love them as they're native to england they're such good doers!! live on air almost haha
