Poor Scooby isn't trying to be nasty, his old owner (who had him from when he was 4-10) always just wanted to go really fast and jump really high. She was a terrible rider and neglected him sooo badly.
So now I'm in the process of teaching him gallopping to jumps is BAD... a steady canter is GOOD! LOL
First photo - he has all four feet off the ground and his head in between his legs! Hahaha that was after going up some steps so he just got faster and faster... lol
Second photo - that's him putting the foot down after the fist jump in a line of three. Lol. Needless to say, we flew over the second one and only just made it, then skipped the third.
We are now in the process of cross country training :) Wish me luck!
