    The funny thing is, she's got solid muscles. I don't think its worms either because I've been worming her with zimmectrine gold or how ever its spelled. I'm going to be working her more then half an hour every day now though so hopefully that'll help.

    Molly looks like she has loads of potential! Agreed with the others, once you get more poles it will slow her down into jumps :) Or you could try a related distance type of jumps in the mean time (4 poles needed at max). Maybe a cross poles, 5 strides then a small vertical? Just something to keep her thinking & ticking! I can't wait to see how she gets on

    While I do use placing poles before a jump, I am NOT a fan of putting them after a jump...at all. I have seen horses really launch at a jump making the landing strides WAY off. That pole can become extremely dangerous in a case like this. If a horse steps on or worse, lands on that pole, it can be diasterous.

    Just my opinion, though.

    I agree, I only put them before a jump. Once I was jumping an Arabian/QH and he thought he was supposed to jump past the poles after the jump and landed on it with the area just below where a horse's feathers are. :/
