    Red face Freejumping 9 month old - spinoff

    I thought some of you might get a laugh from this. My 9 month old colt was weaned with his young uncle (4yo gelding). The 4yo had been taught to free jump the year before. I had a couple of caveletti set up (on a long stride) and this is what we caught them doing. There is actually NO shute, just the two jumps on one side of a little grassy paddock.

    After a few minutes I realised the weanling was getting tired so I made them stop.

    Please don't make a judgement on his jumping ability because the strides are not right for him. But his heart is definitely in the right place.

    So cute! I love the end where the 4 y.o. is obviously very proud of himself and the baby, trotting by with his tail straight up in the air. So funny!

    Oh my goodness, that is just delightful! That baby's got game...though the striding is not right for him, he's looking and adjusting, and appearing verrry proud of himself

    Too cute! I think you may have a nice jumper there- he knows where his feet are!
