By sore, I meant muscle-wise, I don't see anything wrong with his legs looking sore from what I can tell.

he has a really big, scopey jump to work with :) I think when you are on him, he will be able to control his stride a bit more, with a little help from you of course. Nice horse though, looks very honest :)

he doesnt seem to be throwing himself over the jumps. he just seems green with regards to jumps and considering this is the first time you have put him over a jump i think he is doing well.

he didnt balk or even look like running around the jump which shows to me, a very willing attitude. all in all he seems to have ok form and there is definitely something there to work with :)

as mentioned though i would have a vet confirm that he is sound in his legs before jumping too much. after doing the math with the times you mentioned it seems he was retired around age 7 which is a good run for a racehorse. i would assume from this that he retired from age rather than injury however there are the pin firing holes...whichever way having a vet give the all clear would be good as well :)

have fun with him :)

He looks like my thoroughbred did when he started to learn to jump--very awkward...but once he learns to put his legs in the right places, you've got a cute little horse! Like NittanyEquestrian said, he's game and that's what matters at this point!

Gorgeous horse!!! I think he did VERY well over the jumps considering it's his first time over one.
