Take a step back a minute and look at what you're doing to your horse. Imagine if some little toddler jumped on YOUR back and forced you to give her a piggy back ride back and forth across your living room and made you jump over hurdles just because she thought it was fun? To the point where your feet were all swollen and your back was sore and bruised? I don't think you'd like that very much, no matter how much she enjoyed it.

I don't care how much you love jumping. You are ABUSING YOUR HORSE by jumping it every day in that condition. If you actually cared about your horse, you would stop jumping it for a while and let it just have a week to breathe without you jumping on its back and forcing it to jump again.

...oh wait, if you actually cared about your horse, you wouldn't have put it through this hell in the first place.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

You should NEVER jump your horse everyday. You know he's sore and you still do it? Do you care about your horse at all?

That thing with 4 legs, a head and a tail is not a machine. He is an animal who feels and needs PROPER care from someone who actually knows what they're doing.

Please, for the love of your horse get a coach!

And how are you good at dressage if you don't know diddly-squat about riding a horse from back to front. You need a coach, or you need to STOP RIDING ASAP.

You're abusing that poor animal.

why are you jumping him still if he is sore, can you imagine someone making you jump around with someone on your back when you have a sore back or sprained ankle, think about this and stop !!!!! go jump the jumps yourself if you are so obsessed

Sometimes I jump my horse 5 days in a row... it's called a horse show.

Other then that max 2x a week. I have a solution to the jumping everyday, if you still want to do it buy 2-3 more horses


Other then that this is very troll like post.

Pardon me for leaping in as a new member,but I've seen quite a bit of this kind of thing on other forums. Usually the people responsible have barely come within a mile of a real horse...their posts are often a combination of a rather sad and desperate wish to have a horse themselves when they are unable...and a jealousy of those who do have horses. It's not usually just a predisposition to living under bridges and taking bites out of billy goats!
I sincerely hope no horse is being hurt here...But I rather suspect there is, in fact, no horse to injure.
