Free jumping my Paint

I haven't free jumped my horse very big until yesterday. My trainer was present and I am already pretty aware of how big he's capable of. However, i never get to see him actually jump anything since i'm usually in the saddle when he's doing the jumping. Anyway... my barn mate is a pretty brave rider and i've been thinking about having her ride the big stuff with him. He can easily course 4 foot, but i'm much much much more comfortable around 3'3"-3'6", so she'd definitely have to do the riding. I'd like to know what ya'll think. He's a little unrefined... but has talent for days, and i'd like to cultivate him the correct way.

He looks great!
My 15 hh paint gelding also clears 4 ft, I think paints are too overlooked in the jumping world!

He looks fabulous!

It's like he's not even trying, haha.

I really agree with this. He always jumps super fast, clean, and ALWAYS goes. He is an absolute Saint. I'm not the greatest rider in the world, and he always packs me around. I've been looking at getting another horse... and i keep ending up looking at "cobby" type, loud colored, big jumping, sporty little paints. hahaha!

I don't think he's trying at all, lol. He makes that look as easy as taking a stroll in the park...
