    Ok....we all need to calm..take a breath,...lol! But I am not going to be nice. T
    Thinktwice: that was rude and uncalled for. Get your facts right.
    Barnprincess: I agree with everything you have said. He shouldnt be jumping that height. Honestly I think he would do wonderful around 2'9.(or lower)
    MIEventer:She will ignore it, even if its for the good of her horse. She can't be this defensive.

    Now my opinions! Release. I can't say it enough. I don't care if it is a critique thread or not. Your horse doesnt like that height. After a while he wont jump it, b/c we can all tell he struggles. Idk why you just can't come down 1'6 or more. You will still be jumping. And your horse will be sound for longer.

    Isnt that the only thing that matters?

    I agree 100% many people just get too caught up in how fast their horse can go, or how high their horse can jump, or how long their horse can go. We should not push our horses to the "how much" limit. I know that most everyone on here loves their horses, they just get caught up in competition, they want to bet better than everyone else. They need to just stop and think about their horses health, safety, wants, and needs.

    Nice new pics !! I think he looks very comfortable at those heights. I know you arent looking for critique per say but I would suggest some grid work to tighten up both your forms & you can start playing with some more height through the grid work =]

    ^ I disagree. I can see some bad spots and also some awkard, 'throwing' himself over moments as well.

    I'm glad to hear you are working on grids - I would still suggest lower until he can really judge his distance and jumpy calmly with a nice bascule. Lots of correctly strided related lines, ridden precisely, will also help him with his rythym and learning to judge his distances.

    Agreed.
    Also, you can see plainly that in almost ever photo Oscar is dropping his left leg, indicating that you as the rider are not balanced forcing him to compensate.

    I'm surprised too at your opposition against critique too - I mean, it doesn't matter how high your horse can feasibly jump if he can't properly learn how to jump smaller fences with the help of a confident, balanced rider. Your riding and your horses performance are ultimately interconnected and we cannot judge one without focusing on the other as well.

    To me..(and this is my opinion) the 2nd and 3rd pictures looks like he is throwing himself a bit..But I see extreme improvment. Good Job :)
