Has anyone ever free jumped their horse? At my barn, I am a counsellor at the summer camps. This year, we did free jumping demonstrations with some of the boarder's horses. I understand that you have to set up a chute (I think that's what its called?), and start with a small jump, then make the last few higher each time.
How many jumps would you normally set up, and how many strides apart? For leg protection, do you just need the front and back boots, or are bell boots a must also?
If anyone has the answers to some of those questions, or any tips, that would be greatly appreciated.=D
