Horse jumps cattle guard

I just watched our horse jump the 7' cattle guard. Disconcerting to say the least. Other than keeping the gate closed, what can be done?

We have 7 horses that jump the cattle guard. I tried stringing ribbons above the guard hangind down so the horses would be jumping into them. Didn't work. They still jumped.
Ended up using a gate.

We got some wiggly rubber snakes and put them in front of the cattle guard and a few on the cattle guard. Worked for us.

You could try painting it a bright color. I know cows don't want to get close to a freshly painted cattle guard. Incidently, have you ever head them called auto-gates?

There is a wonderful little invention called a Drive Through Electric Fence Gate.

You could put it on the inside of the cattle guard and it would stop him from jumping it. Plus, it saves you from having to get in and out of your vehicle to open and shut a gate.

Grades on the ground, cattle are afraid to walk on them and its easier to use than a gate so you can take work equipment back and forth without the hassle of a gate.

Big scary objects to keep him away :)

Our cattle guards here are big pits dug in the ground with pipes laid over the top of them like prison bars.

I have seen lots of cattle guards but never one across a paved road. I am assuming no down the road cattle drives on that highway. Lol Here they use them at the entrance to a pasture, tho not as often at roadway entrances as I recall in my youth. Sometimes they are between pastures on large holdings.
