I believe there's always hope left. Perhaps you could send him to a trained for a while? They could work with him and try to help him. I hope everything works out, he sounds like a great horse. :)

Well he's not owned by me. And since his owner is a horse trainer I don't think she would really go for that. =[ I think his owners have pretty much given up and have just decided to live with it.. so they have me riding him while he has this problem and arent really trying to fix it

Well I rode D today for the first time in a while. At first I was nervous about how he might act since he'd been off, but he was GREAT!! =] Flat was absolutely perfect except for his head carriage.. He tends to twist it around for no reason at all, but I got him straight a couple of times. Cantering was amazing, went a little fast at times but he slowed down quickly enough. We only jumped a crossrail today. He was very good about it and I tried to cope with the overjumping best I could (:

Is he overjumping to such an extremity that you cannot ride him? I know plenty of jumpers, who do 3ft and higher, who over jump small fences but put them up to a higher fence and they don't over jump. Honestly my pony over jumps anything under 3'3" at a show and under 2'3" at home and I've never really had an issue with it, as a result we never have any rails. If you cannot safely jump him then by all means don't do it, I'm just a little confused because I've never really known anyone with an issue with it. I'd only have an issue if my horse was jumping like this:
But if you feel unsafe then I wouldn't jump him.

But if you feel unsafe then I wouldn't jump him.
that video is gonna give me nightmares ! thats how i fell of right after i started riding again [after breaking my arm] pretty much the same over jump as the end of the video, but the horse i was riding took off bucking afterwards =/ !

i generally dont mind when they over jump a bit, better than hitting them down !!

I've been told he does it from fear, but I don't know because he never seems nervous.
We have tried all sorts of jumps, crossrails, single verticles, double verticles, panels.. he does it for everything. I have seen him jump up to 2'6.. he still overjumped but not as much. It's a pretty frustrating problem, but I'm learning to cope better. I can sit it so it's not particulary dangerous, and hes really good jumping.. doesn't go too fast and is perfect steering.
