Free Jumping to 4ft
I was free jumping my horse and the 4 feet was just an experiment. I only tried it twice and stopped. I don't want to push him but he absolutely LOVED jumping this height.
Cool Great pictures!
Very neat that your horse is so willing. If I may, though, your setup could be a bit safer. Please use cups on either side of the pole, and help your horse out (I assume she doesn't jump this height on a regular basis?) by putting a groundline down. This will allow her to guage the sweet spot better, and might help bring those knees up; with the pole resting on the gate and her knees hanging, I'd hate to see a rotational fall. Just want to keep everyone safe :)
Thank you for the concern and advice (:
Those are cool photos!

Please be safe...
Oh awesome, no such thing as too safe! Might try some lower bounces to get him to lift his knees more :) Good luck!
Awesome your horse has the ability, now that you are helping him along more, you could do as well in the saddle. Great news, I am excited for you.
