Crow jumps, just small logs in the woods, but he's good at it :) Surprised my trainer when she saw us, she was sure we'd fall and kill ourselves x) (he was very green at the moment, and I'm not exactly a jumper either). Since then we've jumped several small logs when we're out, and obstacles once (also small, the height of a small bale of straw) which was very scary :P Horse-eating obstacles.
He either gaits or canters before the jump, and normally comes down in a canter. Both works just as well. And he loves it.
I might add that when I had shattered my wrist and didn't dare to ride him (he wasn't started under saddlm then, I injured myef when we tried that) I walked him a lot in the halter and had him jump all kinds of weird logs on weird ground :)
He's a gaited standardbred.
Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
