critique my ottb free jumping :)

Having fun with Hero in the round pen and put up a caveletti - didn't have a hard time getting him to jump it either :)

urgh wont embed..

He just turn 14 - I've owned him for a year and just fool around on him, He sat for 6 years in a pasture after retiring from racing...but now I have the opportunity at a new barn for lessons and hauling to shows so I might get into that :)

The video isn't working for me, but I suggest, even if he raced only once, to have a full work up of x rays done on his legs to make sure he's sound for jumping.

He looks like he is throwing himself over the jumps.

He's game...that's half the battle. Good luck with your lessons and working with your new trainer!

He is holding himself up with his lower neck muscles and not stretching his back properly, both over the jump and on the flat. Get his upper neck solid, his back supple and strong, and you will have the balance you need for a good jump. To be honest, he looks a little sore to me.

yeah i think its unbalanced issues this was his 2nd time in this round pen - i am just hoping since he is under muscled he is just a little goofy right now - he'll prob never be perfect considering he has pin fires all down his shins and sat for six years.

There is no heat in any of his legs - but his feet might be a bit sore from the move.
