Learning to jump (on the lunge)

I think it is safe to say that Reilly and I won't be rocking over to the UK any time soon for a crack at Badders or Burghley! Today, in an effort to get some 'lift off' I popped Reilly on the lunge and showed him some small jumps. He's certainly all heart but not too much 'ping' in the pony yet. He clearly wants to please but the idea of organising ones impulsion and ones legs all together so that one may pop over some poles is quite challenging for this wee chap. He may not have shown star quality today but he sure got an A for effort. Not once did he even look like he was going to refuse, bless him. Perhaps the jumps need to go up a metre for him to get the right idea?
