o that's so fun! congrats!
for a training jump its a pretty good size lol newaysss it looks like you got a little left behind for this jump, but you recovered well. you are in a safe position for being left behind, but to close to the saddle for this point of the jump if you had a choice lol. you did a good job w/ giving your horse his head and neck to use for balance, tho your reins look too long. i like how you are looking where you are going and even tho i would like to see your heel a little farther down, your leg position is really good and secure, with a correct stirrup length

good job! you look awesome and i bet it wont be too long til you move up to prelim!

I am assuming his leg is better now????? (That sorted itself out very quickly!!!)

He wasn't ever lame on the leg with the splint. He did however get an abcess in a different leg from the ground at the show, he is prone to stone bruises which then turn into abcessess in his left hind so now were treating that and he is almost better.

The trouble is a horse doesnt have to be lame on a leg for working it to cause tremendous problems!!!

I hope for your sake working him hasnt hindered/agrevated any underlying condition! He is extremely young and is worked hard from what i have seen of him on this forum.

Take care with him!!

Sorry to ask, but is this the horse that has been lame on and off for the past three weeks?
I'm just confused, if it is the same horse, why would you compete him at the weekend, if its been worrying you so much?

Have to add though, you do look fab! :wink:

futolympeventer327 05-22-2007 09:43 AM

He was just getting better the week leading up to it and was completly sound by the weekend. Then he was fine Monday but started going down hill tuesday and ever since then has going between dead lame to completly sound to dead lame again from day to day so were taking him to a diagnostician center on thuresday and then no matter what it turns out to be he is getting at least june off because we have put alot on him and its his first year of competition. I would like him to be sound in the fall for young event horse because I'm convinced we'll win!! :D

Aww fingers crossed for you! :wink:

your horse
Nice Jump, although he is jumping quite flat, you need to lift his head up so he jumps rounded. :lol: Lameness? You are taking a risk jumping him then! Get it checked out!! :wink:

You are jumping way too flat to start with and you need to be in 2 point. You need to be forward and off his neck. If your horse was lame before you jump, then you are so stupid to jump him just after it is fixed. that's how the major breaks occur!!!!!!!!!! :evil:
