I actually disagree that he's got bad conformation. There aren't any great photos to judge it from, but he's got a lot of bone, his joints look good and I think he'd have a beautiful neck with some proper work. He might toe out a little, but then, that could also just be a bad photo.

The first jumping photo they have up is pretty off-putting for a jumping horse BUT watching the video, I actually think he wants to jump pretty cute, he's just not being helped out at all. He's not a spectacular mover, but he looks like he's got a nice long stride and he's certainly not a BAD mover. I don't think he's a world beater, but I think he'd be cute in a good program.

KWPNowner, how high do you think he'd go with the right conditioning/riding?

I think he'd be pretty happy - and cute - at 2'6" and I wouldn't be shocked if he could get around at 3'. Watching his video again, he wants to be good with his front end and he uses his neck and back quite well. And man, can he take a joke! He gets his rider out of trouble a lot. She misses pretty often and he still figures it out. This isn't a division pony, but I could see him being a great little Children's pony.

Personally I think it's not he has bad conformation it's just he might not be born to jump kinda thing. Of course he can jump but nothing to get excited over.

Yea, most horses can jump, but whether or not they can do so skillfully can be a different matter.

Just saying about the conformation, I do agree that good conformation helps but I have a 14.2hh pony who is built very downhill and everything but he is a super jumper and has jumped 1 meter with a a rider on more than one occasion.
So it will depend on the pony, whether or not it can jump 3ft.
