My horse "jumps" random things lol

So, while riding with my family in the pasture, we decided to lope through a flat that just had some small brush in it and some sagebrush. Well. My horses lope felt reallllly off. Later, I learned that she was trying to jump the brush as we were going along. Lol. She's slowly figuring out that she can't jump it all....

Anyone else have similar issues?

My horse jumps shadows sometimes. Just ignore it, they'll figure out on their own eventually. :)

Lol I rode an arabian once that would jump shadows, it got kinda of rough when riding in a group! Lol
Eventually they get it though just sit deep on them like "were riding through!" kind of thing (this might only work if your horse associates jumping with two point however)

My friend has two TBs (16+hh and 17.1hh) and this chunkly little 15-15.1hh grade QH that's blind in one eye. Guess who loves to jump anything and everything? The chunky QH. She just kind of accepts it. He hasn't tried anything completely ridiculous yet to my knowledge.

A little 13.3 arab mare I had(had to be put down when I was 17 or 18) jumped a cone, we were riding western as I had always done and I was trying to make her go around the cones and she jumped it lol. My TB has jumped a pile of baby powder, poop and a span of 3 ground polls lol
