As the needle to the pole(s)
His breeder told me that as a youngster he would free-jump obstacles in his paddock just for fun. I haven't found him that eager to jump; when faced with something like a log, he almost always chooses to step over. That's okay; jumping is not the kind of "air" this dressage rider aspires to. ;-)
