QH mare - Natural Talent
As I have mentioned in other threads I have a well bred, very athletic QH mare. I bought her with the intention of getting into competitive trail or maybe even back into reining however is a natural jumper. She jumps fences, any fences, pasture fences (when she gets bored with our training regime) set up fences, logs... whatever. I know that no one will probably believe me, but she has jumped 4.5 to 5 feet, consistently, over the same gate, in order to visit with the geldings next door. When she's done she jumps back in. I HAVE SEEN HER DO THIS SEVERAL TIMES.
That being said, she is still a Quarter Horse. I am trying to learn to jump so that Lita can pursue this natural talent, but I want to know that she is not wasted on a novice like me. Are there any recorded Quarter Horse jumpers that made it to high levels?
