Dougal, my 14.2hh 5 y/o Highland Pony gelding, hadn't jumped a jump in his life when I got him in May last year.
When we started doing a little jumping he did not understand the concept of going over at all. He would either run out, run through the jump or just plop ove rlike a sack of tatties.
I had PC camp on Monday-Wednesday this week and Dougal has suddenly grasped the concept of jumping over the jump, was flying over the jumps like a wee pro and is absolutely loving it. A little bit too much at times, haha. I'm so happy!
Ignore me. Still getting used to his green as grass, mad leaps, haha.
Being lunged over jumps last year.
My mother's timing is awful when it comes tot aking pictures, but here are a few jumpy pics from PC.
