His breathing is always a little loud (he might just be a loud breather. I have known a lot a TBs who breathe loud) and it's not as loud when he's in shape. I haven't gotten him looked at by the vet because I just do flatwork with him and it doesn't affect him unless you are asking him to do lots of strenuous work such as galloping. As for jumping, he is perfectly sound with no leg issues. He just doesn't seem to enjoy it much. I think because he gets intimimidated if he hits the pole with his legs. I am not a trainer though, and with someone more experienced than me, he might become great at jumping. I mostly just have him for sale as a flatwork horse because that is the kind of riding I currently do with him, and I have Maestro listed as a horse for jumping because he does enjoy doing it.
