My mare likes running the barrels and poles sometimes. She really gets into it at times, but is really lazy about it at other times and just won't give you the take off.
Whenever she jumps, she's always ready to go. She goes crazy for it.. but she's also my speed horse. So I need to know what I can do to encourage her to be more excited about it at times. And no, she's not one of the stupid psychotic horses, that can't handle their energy, so don't worry about that. She'll get kinda jiggy, but that's the extent of it.
But I guess I need tips in general, not just for the speed. When she jumps is the only time it seems like, that she's ALWAYS ready to go forever.
