This is my baby Cowboy. He is 4, and has started his jumps. We are going to a schooling show next week, so we did some multi-jump practice/courses, which he had never done. We then added 'scary stuff' to it the day following, which is the course you see here ;)
No worries about overjumping him - He was loving this, didn't duck out at all, and no more jumping untill show day for him!! These are all 18'', except the crossrail, which is like ... 2 inches :p I compete 2'9'' with my trainer and her schoolhorses, but Cowboy has only just started out, and we are taking it easy. Nothing even close to 2'9 untill he is 6. Period. I don't want him out early, and I don't want him discouraged.
ANYWAYS, this was our last round of the day, and I asked to have it recorded. IMO, Cowboy was almost perfect. Got all his leads, got the distance for the line, kept his head on straight ... the only thing wrong with him was when he broke from the canter at the end. I'm not asking me though!! Judge him AND me!! Things I've noticed about me - my legs are swinging ... a lot. My legs don't usually move a lot at the trot on the school horses, so idk whats going on here. If you know, tell me! I also need to sit back in between the line.
