I own a Black Quarter Horse named Brodie. I have had him for about 7 months now. When we got him he was just a pasture horse yet the owner claimed she rode him western. As a new horse buyer I was very inexperienced and I just fell in love with him. We seemed to connect that day. I had a chance to get on him and ride, and I was the first to ride him engish. So now I have been riding him engish and teaching him pretty much from scratch. He has come such a long way and I am very happy. I still need to get muscle on him and raise his hindquarters. My goal one day is to eventualy show him in Hunter Jumper...but I don't know how to start off his jumping carrer. I don't know if it is good for him or if a quarter horse can jump. I only want to jump up to 3 foot. The highest I've jumped with him was 1 foot and he never refused a jump. The only time he did was when there was a grid....by he is lazy and doesnt pick up his front feet. So what im truly asking..can I make a semi-western horse english?...and can a quarter horse jump?
