Straightforward and sensible advice from William Micklem this week on jumping a young horse. Stunning pic of High Kingdom jumping as a three year old.

I'm going to be grumpy about this and respond with just: "Well, duh."

Anyone who thinks chasing a youngster instead of longing under controlled conditions and/or who thinks you should just send them down to an obstacle without a placing jump shouldn't be developing a young jumper unsupervised.
