This is Despationate.... a 16.4hh, 5 year old TB gelding that's been off the track for about a month now:
The other day I was riding him... where he lives they don't have a proper arena so I built one out of poles... Anyway I was trotting him around, when he decided he was bored, and turned and jumped the poles. I was pretty shocked but also excited, so I wanted to see if it was a fluke, or real. So I tried him over a REALLY tiny "jump" and he jumped it beautifully. Since he's only been a month of the track, and a 5 year old, I diddnt jump again, but at least I know he can jump!
What do you guys think of it? And the fact that he willingly jumped when I asked?
