    Talking Free jump 3'6"

    Everyday I feel more and more lucky when my horse does things like this.
    I am so proud :')

    (and yes, I am aware that he is jumping it from the wrong side, it was not intentional. Apparently he likes to prove to me that he's good no matter what haha)

    Jumping the wrong side? I see no problem with him jumping that way.. Except for the ground pole.. Unless that's what you meant.

    Haha if you look harder enough, or at the right angle it looks like he is moving :P

    Lol ^ Your right! Although, it kind of does hurt my eyes to look at... Did he make it over without hitting the ground pole just btw?

    I would back off on the height and work on striding and technique. He' gotten in very close (that's what the ground pole on the correct side helps with) and is jumping with a really short upright arc, sort of like this ^. Consequently, he's not showing his best jumping form.

    It's great that he's so willing, but if your goal is to teach him to jump correctly and in good form, you'd be better off doing grids and gymnastics.
