    My mare is rushing in between gymnastics

    So, we got the canter thing down, now its not rushing in between the gymnastic or going really fast after the jump. Ideas?

    Are you currently working with a trainer? I would be going back to basics and working on transitions and your half halt. Adding poles to get proper distances will also allow her to balance herself which will slow her down. Adding a halt straight ahead after the last fence is also a great way to teach her to fine tune herself on your aids.

    I would suggest taking a few lessons with a coach even if its on a different horse to give you more experience.

    I am working with a trainer, and I've been riding for quite a long time. Her previous owner didn't train her for it, she just threw some high fences and smacked her over them.

    Go right back to absolute basics. Poles on the ground. Don't canter over the poles until you can trot over them without rushing, and with her listening to half halts etc. If she rushes in trot, then go back to walk. Once you're cantering over the poles well, and meeting each pole where you want, then start adding fences with placing poles.

    Is your spacing correct? Are you jumping verticals or oxers in the grid? Square low oxers are good for backing a horse off a bit and forcing them to round up over them instead of plow through full speed. Also, make sure your own position is correct and you're not unintentionally sending her signals to speed up.
