I am a 12 year old girl from England, but originally from New Zealand. I own a 5 1/2 year old connemara cross gelding. He is the sweetest thing in the world. I can sit under him and he won't do anything. He does have a tendancy to kick horses but never when i'm on him, and only geldings that are lower than him in the pecking order in his herd. He is 14hh and I have jumped him four foot. I think he may be able to go higher. We have never lost a chase me charlie, though I have only had him scince febuary. He is a very quick learner, as when I 1st got him, he was scared of jumps, but now he loves them. It boosted his confidence when i did a chase me charlie on him, though was careful, and we won jumping 4'0. I am really proud of him because he now has done cross country and is semi-fearless, and he will jump most jumps easily, but I have learnt to sit to his leaps. As his jumping is basically perfect, our goal now is to get him down and to get him into dressage. Below is a picture of him. He has come a long way but is still spooky.
