As soon as he sees a fence his ears prick forward and he is unstoppable! Lol in a good way he says hunters is not for him and I just get to bored doing hunters I love the fun and excitement of the jumper ring!
That's how my TB is. Not exactly unstoppable, because well he's in a simple snaffle and I can EASILY stop him. But he loves it. The hunters is too slow for me. I love the shart turning and the speed and the height. Hunters is too slow and too picky for me and my tb. We have to get him thinking for atleast 30 miinutes in the arena at home and we trot 3 footers like their 12" cross rails.
But he's turning 14 in april. That's the only concern. I don't want to run his time short on showing before or if he gets early arthiritis, etc.
