To describe jed, you have to go through all his aspects.
Jed is one of the most loving horses you will ever meet. he will literally lick you, and give you 'kisses' as mallory says. he is such a sweet horse, no matter what those men did to him. He is still slightly scared of big men, until they get to know him. Only big men really have to work to earn his trust.
Jed loves jumping, he can go for hours on end, without even breaking a sweat. he is very in shape, and even exercises himself! Just put him in the pasture, with some jumps, but only a special kind, that mallory had made for jed, so he could actually adjust them himself. he was smart enough to learn how to do it himself.
Jed was actually born in a slaughter house, and mallory had gone there to look at horses, because she told her parents that she'd rather save a couple of horses and train them herself, so she could get to know them, then buy a horse from a dealer or breeder, and the horse already be trained, and just jump as a job. so, she went there, and they had a sickly mare who had just given birth. mallory went to look at her first. Oh, the mare was a beauty. but she was so sick. Jed, was just this tiny little foal in hiding. mallory fell in love with both mother and foal, and bought them immediately. Well, after persuading the owner. she had to pay him around ninety thousand for the two! Yes, but upon getting home and training them, it was worth it.
Jed started his training when he was a few months, starting with the halter. Mallory had earned his trust pretty well by then, so he was fine with the halter and being lead. Mallory had paid the finest vets to take care of him and his mother, who had been doing so much better. Jed was named A Heart's Desire, and she registered him under that name, and at the age of one, mallory started really training him. Lunging, teaching him to go to any gait on command.
At the age of three, Jed had learned all of that, so, she tried saddling him. That went amazing, Jed didn't even notice. He was hesitant with the bit though, his teeth were sensitive from a slight beating to his mouth when he was younger from the man at the slaughter house. But after a month, he was perfect about it. A person on his back? Mallory snuck into his stall and did it herself, trusting him. Well, he bucked her off around five times, so, she didn't tell her parents, and her friend snuck out with her the next time, and they managed to do it.
Later that year, Jed started jumping. He instantly took to it, flying over even the smallest of jumps with ease. One day, when mallory was riding by herself, she wanted to see exactly what he could do, she jumped him over a five foot gate, and he cleared it with ease. he was tired afterward, and she put him away after walking him a bit, and made sure he was well taken care of.
Ever since then, mallory's been showing him in high class levels, and they are training to ride in the Olympics.
