Ok, thought it was my turn

Hi all, now be nice!! But truthful, I've been putting this off for a while, but I thought it was time I let you critique me. So here we go, this is Cusin, a 16hh thoroughbred, ex race horse, sadly I don't own him any more he is now with a friend of my vets, kind of on permanent loan, if you understand.

Picture isn't brilliant I'm afraid but its the only one I have of us in action.

I think he needs to jump bigger! He's hanging in the air and needs a nice decent fence to make him snap up in front. Although hanging front legs is an ex-hurdler thing? Was he flat raced or jump raced do you know?

Nice boy though, how come you put him out on a laon arrangement?

He did flat and sticks!

I didn't have the time he needed. He was very much a one person horse, very protective and if anyone distracted you from him, they'd know about it.
He'd been treated really badly before I got him, was terrified of sweeping brushes and if you shouted at him for being naughty he'd rush to the back of the stable cowering, as if you were going to beat him.
He had a lot of issues with people as a whole. I met a lovely guy through my vet and he fell in love with him, so I let him take him on permanent loan, never to be sold etc.

It was flattering at first that he was so protective, but he was nasty with it sometimes. He would only let me near him, well except for his new owner!

Mmmm yeh when they are babies they never have one to one in training. I bet he just got mad for the attention he wasnt used to! How old is he? Does his (now) daddy jump him?

He looks to enjoy it!

He's 11yrs.
When I last spoke to him, he was just using him for pleasure riding/happy hacking etc
I think he's attended some local shows. He really did enjoy his jumping. Wasn't keen on the indoor ring, but loved it outside.

Yeah, that all I wanted for him. To be happy and have someone to spend all their time on him.
Cheeky monkey he was/is.
