Exclamation My Pony Won't Pick Her Hooves Up!

Hello, I have been jumping for almost two years with my pony and we are jumping limit 2"3. It seems like all of the sudden lately she knocks the jump over on purpose. Like it doesn't matter at all. I have tried several things, but she just won't clear a jump. Any ideas? Thanks! :)

I would take her and go over some solid jumps. Either go to a cross country spot and go over some of those, or make shift! Take some wood, stick it under the jump so that if she hits it, it stays up. What I do is fill my PVC pipes with gravel, so that they are heavy enough that if he hits them with his feet, it will stay. For this, I would definitely have open front boots on. Not close front, because you kind of want her to feel the sting of when she knocks her legs on the solid. This will tempt her to pick her little dangly feet up ;)

How old is she? How often do you do jump work?

She is seven years old. We jump a little about twice a week. Thanks.
