    I had a horrable fall about 25 years ago that still huants me to this day, but...... it took me a long time to get over it and to this day i'm still coutus of what I jump, do not force her over jump ( your friend not the horse) . Has any one else taken her horse over the same jump with her watching?. Trust me it will be a trust isssue between her and her horse...let her get over it her self

    Poor thing.
    It will probably just take a lot of time. She will need to develop trust with the horse again. She may need to go back to the basics of just ground work until she feels comfortable, then move to ground poles when she's ready. Just encourage baby steps but don't push her. She will have to find trust again at her own pace. It may take years for this to happen again - hopefully it won't.
