Winter Exercises to Improve Jumping [without jumping]?
So, I can't jump outside of lessons for the time being -- a. I'm not totally comfortable doing that with Sasha yet, and b. Barn rules say that I can't without an instructors permission. Alright, I can still do poles and the such.
Sash can be a bit "up" when jumping sometimes. She's usually ok to the jump, but she gets excited after. She has been getting much better, but I want to improve. Sash needs work slowing her canter down after the jump and staying relaxed. She will halt after the jump with no problem, but she [at least] tries to go quickly after the jump.
Any exercises I can work on? I'm assuming collection/lengthening work will help, and I have been working on that, as well as working on a very loose rein on occasion to just let her relax and stretch out.
Oh cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.
