do I need splint boots or sport boots? Or should I be looking of other ones entirely?

Boots are a preference, not a need. I choose not to use them, and my horses jump fine without, up to decent heights.

He is adorable! Well done on jumping him! It's a great feeling when you take a horse over his/her first jump...

It's very important to take it real slowly, so you don't scare him away or injure him. Start with small cross poles, work on trotting poles to get his striding right, and canter poles. Then when he is going nicely, try some grid work. Don't make the sessions too long though, it can be quite strenuous on a horse that hasn't jumped before.

Good luck, and keep us posted.
