Good Jumping Horse?

I was wondering if by the look of Chinga if he looks like a good jumping horse to you? Apart from my heels to far in the stirups and being to far back in the saddle. Please let me know what you think of us. Just please note: This is my first ride on him.

There should be photos of him jumping up tommorow. But they will be small jumps so don't get to exited!

Any horse can do low levels in any discipline out there. It is when we get to mid to higher levels where education, conformation and breeding comes into play.

Right now, I would say what would make you and your horse a great team at low level jumping - is education 1st and foremost. And conditioning.

Sure, your horse can do it. But remember, our horses only know as much as we do - and we only know as much as our coaches know.

I have been jumping since I was six or seven and know my way over a jump. He dosen't have any jumping blood lines but seems to enjoy jumping alot. He knew what to do over the first poll off the ground, that was on the first bar. Even though he could have just walked over it he jumped it. I even double checked with his old owners if he had ever learnt to jump and he hadn't.

Most young horses will hop over a ground pole or did I misread?

Well his 8yo ex-race horse an , when I had it up on the first level of the jumps and it was hardly off the ground and he would jump it. I will have some photos or videos this afternoon to show you what I mean.

He most likely is hopping over it though.

He looks like a cutie. Like MIEventer said, with the proper training, almost any horse can do well at low levels.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

most horses can jump. Its whether your horse likes to and he isn't afraid of the jumps. It also depends on if your horse will respond to your comands telling him to jump.

No - it isn't how well your horse will respond to your commands - it is how educated are you as a rider, to know how to clearly ask your questions properly, to get the correct answers.
