Very cute! He looks like a little dynamite jumper too ;)
His overal confo isn't too bad, though he is quite flat along his topline so his back looks long. I think he's handsome.
And he looks so little compared to those jumps!

Wow! He seems to be trying really, really hard. Just look at those knees! I'd kill for a pony that tried that hard.

I'm not very experienced in the critique department, so I'll leave that to the rest.

He looks very athletic. But the only thing that worries me is jumping that high might me a strain. You might want to be careful to make sure he doesn't pull a muscle doing that high. Other wise he looks very willing and cute(:


Don't Dream it. Be it.

Wow, what a great little jumper! He has pretty good form over those huge jumps; and is certainly a brave little horse...looks to me he really enjoys it!!!

Super cute! I can't believe how high he's jumping. I don't have much to say on his jumping form but you said he's a welsh-cross right? In the video he looks like he's got some interesting knee action, like the kind I've seen on Hackney ponies. That might not do him any favors in the hunter ring, but he's certainly a fantastic jumper pony.

I love how he's like "come ON, let me GO!!!!" He definitely enjoys what he is doing.

Wasn't that one grand prix jumper only like 14 hh? His name is slipping my mind atm, though!!!
