    Critique Tommy!

    Hope picture works...
    Please critique Tommy's jumping form/potential? Have only had one formal jumping lesson with trainer (in photo riding to "feel what I was feeling"). Moving barns soon to get into a hunter/jumper lesson program and hopefully learn more and excel!

    I really like your boy! :)
    He's got great knees, and he seems very alert and happy over this jump. It's not really a high enough jump for me to tell you if he's got potential to do 6' or anything crazy, but it does look like he clears that very easily with lots of room.
    Very nice, nothing jumping out at me saying he couldn't be really great!

    Thank you! He seems to love jumping (: and yeah I realized after I posted this that jumping a small cross wouldn't really say anything, oh well. I'll get some new pictures of us jumping around 2ft.

    Please try not to fall into the habit of lying so far up your horses neck - you don't need to do that at this height
    He looks to have a nice tidy style but don't rush him - better to spend more time on gridwork at this stage than jumping a single fence at 2ft to prove he can do it

    As I said in my post, this isn't me.. It's my trainer.. Hence the colored out face. And thank you for your reply and concern but I'm not rushing him, we have been jumping 2 ft courses consistently. He isn't new to jumping, I just don't have many photos of us jumping. Thanks.

    He's got a cute jump. That said, I'm sort of of the belief that any sound horse can do small courses/jumps with the right conditioning. What are your goals/plans in terms of discipline and height?

    I'm guessing by the blurred out face that we're not supposed to critique the rider (your trainer?)? :/

    Maybe some video of him jumping a 2ft course would be easier to critique - I don't find it easy to judge a horse from one isolated pic but he does seem to know what he's doing

    Thank you!! We are looking into sticking with hunter jumpers and do some circuit shows this fall. Probably jumping around 2'-3', depending on his continued training of course!

    And yes that is not me riding!

    Thanks! I will get some video of a course once we move barns this weekend and get into a new lesson program.
