I Jumped Amber Yesterday!!

When I first started jumping amber, just over small xrails, we were having a lot of problems. She would stop and walk over and knock everything down, She never refused, she just always fell on her forehand and couldn't get over properly. So I backed off the jumping for about 2 months. Have been doing a lot of dressage work, and getting her to lift up her front and work off her hindend. Lots of poles and grids, and lots of free jumping.

So yesterday I decided to try taking her over a cross rail. It was about 18" in the center, so it was a decent sized cross rail. And guess what? She jumped right over it perfectly, landed in a canter and cantered off! I jumped her over it about 4 times, and she did it great every time!! I am so proud of her!!

I feel so proud that my hard work paid off!! And I'm so proud of her! It's a such a wonderful feeling teaching a horse to do something right, and knowing that you're the reason they learned how to do it!

I think alot of jumping is in your mind. If you are sure, confident the horse picks up on this. I have trained lots of jumpers and they just seem to jump regardless of what I put them at. And that includes my endurance arabians.

My daughter was not the bravest jumper and if I asked her to ride my jumper over descent jumps she had problems until she had a big fight with her boyfriend and she was so mad she was jumping 4 foot high spreads and just sailing over everything..
Again I feel it has alot to do with your attitude.

Congratulations on getting her to jump.
