    I have a 6 year old Tennessee Walking Horse who broke his leg when he was little, and can't do the high jumps. He's never jumped before I got him (western horse at a ranch) and we practiced little logs in the pasture after I got him, but never anything formal in the arena. One day, we did (lowest possible crossrail), and he was great! Took to it just fine! Cantering to the jump was much easier than racking to the jump.

    Heres the only pics I have (bareback, I didn't wanna jump him in the heavy western saddle)

    Morganshow11, TN Walkers are not naturally great jumpers. That's just what I heard, idk w/ Spirit cause it was so low and I blame any and all improper striding on my rustyness :)

    Jasper is 5 gaited(walk, trot, pace, run-walk, canter(or gallop is his case) and he has jumped 4 feet. Gaited horses can jump just fine!! They just look alittle diffrent!
