And im kinda getting tired of him flying over 4' and then knocking rails at 1.10 and 1.15. Is it because he's not impressed with the jumps and doesn't feel the need to jump as high?
I have some question after reading your post.
Do you do full courses at 4' at home, or just single fences? There is a difference between doing one jump at a height and putting a course together at that height.
If he has poor stamina, then is he fit enough to do full courses (of any height) at shows? Is he getting tired and sloppy by the end of your round? How many classes do you do in a day at shows?
