    Default Anyone recognize the stallion on Horse Nation today freejumping?

    He has quite a freaky back end technique, as they note!

    I couldn't see the logo very clearly, but I *think* it may have been for Belgian Sporthorse. It look like the video was from a stallion licensing, so maybe someone can come up with a list of stallions from recent sBs licensings.

    It appears to be a video posted by pro-stallions.com .

    I think the horse jumps well, and has an elastic topline, but I wouldn't say he has a great hind end. Not once does he open his hip up over the jump. A great jumper must open his hip.

    Thanks for enabling me with the link Nod Hill

    Tim would he open up with a different distance between the jumps to get him going forward and covering ground?

    I thought he also was going up pretty vertical in front as well as in back.

    I thought it looked like he was being cramped between the jumps... Maybe he would have done better re. opening at the hip with another distance set?

    I was wondering the same thing? Looked very tight for him in there.

    Maybe it's just my computer, but the video itself looks distorted to me, with everything stretched vertically and shortened horizontally.

    There is no doubt, however, that, as Tim says, this horse does not open his hind end over these jumps.

    At the risk of getting flamed for not knowing, can someone please explain what opening up the hind end means to us less knowledgeable about jumping?

    Could be a very interesting hunter stallion. . . he's so careful and electric with his front end (in classic technique) and backs off the front rail, with a wonderful expression, with his withers up. . . .

    Opening the hind means extending, as opposed to flexing, the joints, so there's a kicking out over the jump after the tuck/flexing. At least as presented in the distorted video I'm getting, this horse tucks nicely but lacks the kick.

    Thank you, Fish. I thought that might be what was meant but wasn't sure.

    Luv my COTHers! I knew you'd figure it out! Button Sitte looks more conventional jumping in some youtube videos of him under saddle in the 5yo championships. It appears he is the product of one family farm breeding for 30 years the descendants from one prized mare.

    Even in the other videos where he is coming more forward in his bascule overall, he doesn't really open his hip.... Pulls his stifle in toward his belly and tucks his hocks tight, looks cramped.

    Just wondering how many top jumpers have an exaggerated release behind (not including the ones that are "tampered" with)?
