So I bought a jumping horse in September 2009. He's 13 years old now, and he's been jumping all his life. The owners before me had no interest in dressage, so they didnt really practise it on him, they just rode jumping-dressage (which is different).
These last few months i've been really training him to relax and take his head down, as he always had his head completely up, and would not relax untill he was tired, which isnt a good thing, since I can't keep ridding him untill he's tired everyday..!
I've been working from the ground alot too. So here he is now ;) Please, do critique and comment..!
I DO realize I lean too much back when i'm doing sitting trot.. :/
SEPTEMBER 2009 - this is how we was with me in walk, trot and gallop! And he would not relax.
