Okay not really his first time jumping but first time jumping something higher off the ground lol.. I think he did pretty good - he was scared of those tires!
For those who don't know Hero is a ottb 13 years old, he sat for 6 years I have a lot of weight/muscle to build up - I have been working with him for 3 months. I am a new horse owner so we both are learning and probably taking a lot longer in training then it should.
Just to recap my lesson a few weeks ago and some older photos...been working on tighter contact and getting leads correct- he is getting used to it
MY HORRIBLE POSITION LOL
Today I think my position is approving,
**BTW he was being a bit naughty and was so foward today
Circles around the photographer (BF)
Cantering - on the right lead not throwing a fit!!
So pretty - not me lol
Jumping!! He was sloppy but I think my position looks decent for not jumping a horse in I dunno 8 years!
Just for fun my fiance got on (5'11 hero is 15.1)! Lol
Hates the wash stall but getting used to it as well
I know he needs more weight/muscle build up but he has improved greatly since I got him- His neck was ROCK hard underneath all the fat and muscle sat there its slowly building up the right way lol
