She looks lovely, I love that she is using herself over the jump and isn't just throwing herself over it. I really can't see much wrong here, she looks as though she will be a lovely jumper but this is one single photo so I can't really judge much, it's also not the clearest so I can't see much. But overall she looks very nice and it seems as though she is clearing this with ease. She also looks happy and interested and not unhappy about jumping and that is always something I like to see in horses.

I love that her knees are up and even and she tucks her front legs up nice! She looks like she has plenty of scope and is enjoying herself. Lucky you! :)

Love the scope and how she knows how to properly use her body over a jump. She has a nice attentive expression, overall great shot. All I'd say is don't overdo it on the big jumps at a younger age, but I'm sure you're taking great care of her with that in mind already :)

Is she pretty brave? She seems to be quite keen. I love her form and roundness.

Does it not bother anyone else that this horse is only 5 and already jumping 4'? To me that means she was started jumping early…….

Yes, she is lovely.

Many horses are already jumped 4 foot by the age of 5. Look at the future event horse leagues... They have four year olds over 4 foot courses, and 5 year olds over a tad bigger.

And by 10 or 12 they are arthritic. I own a 22 yo who is the product of too much jumping too young. Food for thought. Just because there are many people in a hurry does not make it right.
