Red seems to take to jumping naturally (though, it'll be another two years before I can even think about it) by the way he bounces over the rope during feed time. I'm still mulling over possible careers for him, thinking maybe barrels or poles.
If you have jumped a gaited, was it difficult to teach them? Did they take to it naturally or act like the jump had teeth and a hacksaw?
Thoughts on this? I'd only be jumping for fun and for muscle building if needed. Curious on the matter, though.
