    She probably should have a trainer to jump. It does NOT just "happen". And no, as far as I know you do not have to have dressage training.

    If she was getting into three day eventing, then she would have to do dressage as it is part of the testing system (ie dressage, cross country course, stadium jumping). Otherwise, everyone who jumps should have flat work experience and know how to ride a horse well on the flat before progressing to jumping - perhaps that is what the friend means.

    No, she doesn't "have to" do Dressage to jump. However, Dressage skills are useful for jumpers.

    Your friend should find herself a trainer and set some goals. I hope she realizes that she can't just jump all the time and expect to be competitive without developing the building block skills.
