    thanks Umm, I'm new to jumping too so, do you have any tips on how to place the jumps correctly, as in stride-wise :/

    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.
    I agree with this.

    It can be fun for a horse to jump, especially when they never have before. But what happens alot of the time is people have so much fun jumping, they start doing it too often and a horse will get sour to jumping and not enjoy it at all. Of course I'm not saying YOU do that, I'm just saying in general that happens alot.

    He's a cute little guy!

    I jumped him again yesterday, he litterally was flying over them! I made a cross rail with two wood poled and 2 buckets and he loved it! I also put a pvc pipe before the jump to help him with his strides. If orgot to get pictures without me in them though :(
