So this was my debut in the 1.10m with this horse. He is almost 7 years old. Dutch warmblood and 17hh. He jumps HUGE. He still needs tons of work on his form and technique. He loves long spots and launching himself. Excuse my position I was trying to hang on for dear life haha. Please judge mainly him! My main question: I have been doing tons of grid work and 9 foot poles infront of jumps. When it comes to a course though he still takes off WELL before he is suppose to. What else can I do to get him deeper in the fence when there isn’t a pole? I’ll hold him right there but he still launches himself.
So this is for everyone’s entertainment. This was a show in july where he did a two stride in a one (over 1.10m)….. he still got clear in the course… but it’s DANGEROUS and scary to be on haha https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=3530617477956
