    Looks nice, definetly could be a good jumper. It looks as if your chasing him into the canter though....but it will all come in time.

    Thanks for the critique. Yeah he doesnt pick up his canter instantly, he's gotten so much better tho. I used to have to ask like 6 or 7 times, now only 2 or 3. Its a lot better. Keep in mind he's a standardbred so he's not used to cantering yet, but im really happy with the progress he's made with the canter. He's finally really moving =D

    Equinangel... How long did it take before you introduced him to the jumps? How was that whole process for you?
    I have a new ottb and he is coming along nicely... can't wait to introduce him to the jumps.

    He needed to be introduced to the idea first......like he had never even seen a ground pole before it wasnt good. So we taught him about ground poles, then moved on to cavaletti. Then for his first jump, I had a crossrail very low, I lead him over it first then rode him over the cavaletti and then the jump. He refused a few times, but finally got it. Rewarded him very lavishly =P no treats though lol. It was a very easy process for me. But remember to keep it low until the horse has developed very good muscle strength and is understanding of the idea. Its hard at first for them to judege distance and height and things like that. Good luck
