Pony Conformation for Jumping?
So this might belong in conformation, but I think it fits better here. I was looking at horse ads on dream horse (below), and was wondering how high you guys think this pony could jump? He's built kinda like my lease pony, so I was just kinda curious. I don't mean this as advertising for the horse, just curious.:D
DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1803848 - Taffy
2003 Welsh pony gelding
watch the videos on the second link to see his form, also how high do you think that the fences are that he is jumping? I know it's kinda hard to tell from a video, so ya. There are 4 jumping videos on the second link, some nearer to the bottom of the page.
50 views and no answers? Anybody?
He doesn't look like he's built for the sport, his jumping is nothing impressive but there's really not much there that's good to give a confo critique.
Not very impressive confro pics @ all! I guess it's not rlly sensible to ask abt how high ponies cud jump, since pretty much any horse in it's prime cud prob free jump 3ft, (w/ exceptions still). a cute all around pony though, just not a specially bred hunter pony or anything!!
anyone else hav opinions on this?
I don't think "pretty much any horse in it's prime cud prob free jump 3ft"... To be able to successfully jump 3ft a horse's build is going to be pretty decently inclined to pick it's front end up effectively. A horse with a poor conformation for jumping is going to have a much harder time clearing a jump than it's more suitably built competitors.
That being said, that horse is poorly conformed (from the pictures where you can vaguely see her standing) ... I would say that horse should not be jumped more than the cross rails and logs they show her doing >2ft. She would be suitable (and cute) for pleasure and low level competition, imo.
I think it's more any horse could jump three feet from a standstill, without a rider on its back :wink: there's a huge difference between with rider and without rider and with this particular pony I would probably stick to the 2'3 - 2'6 kiddie rings (except not, because the pony isn't suitable for kids, apparently?) Overall I agree that it's cute for local competition!
yea, but this pony is so cute, even as a flat/low jumps horse!:D
I know that chick in the first photo lol just saying =p
