I love standardbreds and I think that they are DEFINITELY just as good as other horse breeds, if not better. If you own or love standardbreds, visit this website, and join many other standardbred lovers in New Zealand. If you know lots about training standardbreds, does anyone have an idea about how to teach my standie to jump? Thanks.

Just slowly work up at it. Start with ground poles then slowly raise them. It worked well for me and my horse. :)

Yes, this is a gaited breed, although in riding sprots (not sulky racing) the standardbred's pace is considered bad and is removed even though Paso Finos, Icelandic horses etc are also gaited. I think that that is sad.

Thanks, I have just started teaching my horse to jump, she is currently doing 30 cms max under saddle and today she cleared 45cm in hand! I would like to teach her to free jump, do you know how I would do that? Thanks.

No but I can electic fence (not on) around an area, what size should it be? Thanks.

I'm not sure of the size, but to free lunge, you should set up a channel for them to run this video.
