Wow, good job little horse! :love
He says thank you and wait until you see him going even higher! He also jumped 7' long today. No pictures, unfortunately. When he is really focused and trying, he is amazing.

You are an awesome trainer!
I can't train that!! I can support it with natural supplements, teach him to stay with me and encourage him to jump higher, but that mind and natural talent must be there!! Mostly I have to train myself to keep up with him. We show with two different breed registries, AMHA & AMHR. In AMHA, the winner is determined by jump offs, horses with clean rounds advance to the next round where jumps are raised until only one has a clean round or max height of 44" is reached, but in AMHR, it is determined by timing the period it takes to complete the course! That means I have to RUN!! So he and I are both on the same joint supplement. I just take mine in a pill instead of soaked beet pulp. This will be our first year attempting timed jumping.

He may have that natural talent, but it takes someone with the vision to see, the heart to love, and the uncanny ability to draw out that talent and bring it to full bloom.
That is so well said and very true! He had discouraged a few people from working with him before I got him. Not to say that I have all of those, but I try my best!!

@Hudson and me

A very rare snow day here! My Southern bred horses said no thank you, but I said yes! Once they were out of the barn they had fun for a few minutes, but were still very happy to go back in afterwards!

It's been snowing here for 2 hours, must be an inch on the ground. News predicts 3-5 inches. Our horses are in the barn, they said phooey on playing in that stuff. The steer is in The Pig Palace, sheep in their barn, 1 dog with the sheep, 1 dog in her doghouse crammed with hay, 2 dogs on the porch and 1 dog (in heat) in the house. All are happy and have warm beds.
