Talking He Jumped! He Jumped!!

Yay!! I am sooo excited! My gelding JUMPED! He has not done this for me in the past and I do not beleive he has ever jumped in his life. I'm gonna start working on his form as he just sorta popped over it but, oh well, at least he got over! I think this will be really good for him as I don't get to work him often but he really needs it as, lets face, he's FAT. So what should I do next, I just sorta proped up a fallen branch on chair so it was only about 6 in. max but I think i'm gonna gen some bettter jumps. Do you guys have any suggestions for patterns or anything? I just scratched his withers and told him he was a good boy, is that enough? I'm soo excited!! :D

Thats great! Just remeber when a horse is new to jumping it can be very hard on their joints, I really suggest getting a pair of boots, because chances are he will knock a poll/log and we don't want to hurt his legs do we :)

Sir Success. Eventer.

^ yeah you dont want to put him off when he has just started.

have fun with him but dont over work him, start off with a grid of two small jumps and then maybe three, with varied striding (maybe one stride then two) and see how he sorts out his strides!

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Hehe, thats what I thought when I set up a jump in the arena when I turned my horse out, just to see if she had any inclination to jump it, and what she looked like. Then she decided to jump out of her stall the next night. :( But at least I know she can jump lol. She's only 4, and hasn't done much. And the jump in the arena really wasn't big at all but I guess she wanted more. They are so cute when they first start jumping. Honestly, if you haven't, I would start with trot poles first, in a grid like pattern, and then move up to canter poles, then start adding in some small jumps, just to help him learn to pace himself, and you to count his strides, and help him come up to a fence right. Keep us updated on how he's doing.
