Okay thank you. He does love to jump. I've only done it a few times with him but I think he does great with no previous training. He knows where to put his legs and seems to enjoy it. That's just what I was worried about; if his conformation would let him do it.

I stick to my previous statement and say that he is a little too skinny, but its great that you've bought him and you're putting weight on him. If you would like to see good weight gain results then I would suggest getting a supplement made by Nutrena called Empower Boost. Its awesome. It puts weight on them better than corn oil but it won't make them hot whatsoever. I love it.

To build up his rump I would suggest doing a lot of backing from the ground, but make sure you're feeding him to keep up with any exercise routine you put him on. I like his front end a lot, it just seems like he needs some muscle toning. He's a pretty boy all together though, just needs a program. :) I'll bet he'll be a totally different horse in 6 months.

Thanks! :) I'll work on making him a little more muscular. And we are putting corn oil in his feed now, so I'll check out the Empower Boost! :)
