    Jumper

    What should I look for in a horse to know if she can be a jumper?

    Yearling
    Deep sloping shoulders, powerful hindquaters, straight legs, good joints, arching neck and a willingness to learn.


    Personaly if your talking about the headshy horse I'd wait until you sort that out, I know females can multitask but horses rarely can

    She hasnt been headshy the last couple days. Its weird, but im not planning on jumping her for another year. I need to work on everything else first, I just want to make sure she is capable. :)

    It'd be nice if you could get us some body pics of her, squared up and in a well-lit area.

    Not ideal pictures, but she looks a little downhill and very long in the back...she might have some problems being light on her front end and the long back will make it more work intensive for you to collect her (though its definitely doable). If you can get her front end and back end working together, I bet she's a really smooth ride...I lease an ottb with very similar conformation and he's very comfortable if you can keep him together, kind of like driving a Cadillac as opposed to a Miata:P Also, he's a fine jumper, even with his downhill build; he really loves doing it too.
