Starting Merlin over trot poles

Well I have recently made some jump poles and standards, and am very proud to say that I took my boy Merlin over the trot poles today!
He is a natural! Picks his feet up nicely and floats over the poles! He looks so elegant and is really careful about his feet. I even raised the end pole a little bit and his baby steps speak talent to me! I was so proud of how he did I just had to share Im going to keep him working over the poles tomorrow.
Anyone else starting their horse with jumping? Hows it going?

I just started my 11 year old (LOL ) on jumping. Cross rails. He's watching his feet really nicely.

Hopefully he'll be a natural at actual jumps.

Best of luck to you guys!!
