    jumping prsopect???

    I have a 4yr old tn walker/quarter horse mix mare she's about 15 hh and she is my trail horse and lesson horse,now im wanting to do english and jumping with her,i have been teaching her how to jump using clinton andersons methods,she has done ground poles,and jumped barrels,she really likes to jump,when I let her loose in the arena she'll run full out and jump the barrels.does she look like she would be a good jumper?im going to get english riding lessons with her soon but for now im just jumping her on the lounge and small ditches on the trail,how hard is it to switch from western to english?ive been riding western for 5 yrs now and I only the the basics of english riding.so please give me your honest opinions!im not going to be showing her in jumping or english just at home.

    Hmm do you have any shots of her confo.? She looks like she could be a jumper depending on how willing she is, but once you start to jump on her back, you MUST start out small. You can't go into jumping like 2 feet right away you have to train eac other :)

    Hahah tennesee walker.. funny you said that! I know a VERY fancy tennesse walker/connemera. She jumps a ten. So it really could be up to how well the horse jumps undersaddle

    Any horse can do lower level jumping. I will say that she doesn't look ideal for jumping... that being said.... She can do it.
