Absolutely! I have a video of us jumping 3'11 that I will upload when I get home. The video was taken two weeks ago

Sure, I have a video of me and Bugsy jumping 3'11 on my laptop. It was taken two weeks ago so it is very recent. Last weekend we had an A show but didn't go that high so I'll post the one of us practicing

Post both of them. I'd like to see you in a show and at home practicing.

I can't cause the movie at the show was taken by a professional and I can't download them to my computer

Gymnastics gymnastics gymnastics. Keep the fences LOW, cross rails even. Line of bounces, 1 stride to 2 to 1, whatever, change often to keep his attention. Also, work on taking fences at a trot. He'll probably be clumsy at first, let him make his own mistakes and learn. He's capable, but being lazy.

Do you think that maybe your horse is just burnt out?
You say you lunge him even when you ride him and you ride EVERY day. A horse (no matter what level) should have at least one day off out of the week. Horses needs time off to, just like us. Give him a week to be a horse and not have to worry about "going to work" everyday. He might just be tired - plain and simple.

I'd love to let him just be a horse if he would only stay fit. He's been off a week and I got him back to work Monday now he's all flabby! His "day off" is a trail ride for an hour. I'll definitely do the gymnastics! I love doing them and now I have an excuse haha

Funny how you think you know what my horse will and will not do. He's flabby, on his stomach, hocks, shoulders, and chest. Therefore I will not change my schedule because all it will do is make him more fit. I am just as dedicated as he is and I hold him to the same standards I hold myself. He gets 2 days off before week long A and AA shows to relax. That is his down time. I hold him to a high standard and we both work out hard. For me in and out of the saddle to stay fit. I just needed advice on how to make him pick his legs up more at the little 3'9 stuff

Horses actually don't start losing muscle for about a month...doesnt matter if I know your horse or not. I agree with blush that he should get a good break.

How is he even flabby on his hocks ?
