Sorry if this turns into a novel :P
Okay, so, as of right now, there's one horse I trust to do anything with me. She's around 15.1 or 15.2 hands and I'd like to teach her to jump.
I started on ground poles, then with cross rails, and so on with lunging and stuff, but she won't jump any higher than 1 1/2 foot cross rails. I know there's nothing wrong with her legs/back/body and I know she coould do it because my 14 hand pony can clear higher than that and she's a bit overweight :P So...my mare just WON'T clear it...and it's not like she won't go over it, she just hits the jump everytime...
How do I get her to go over it without hitting it?
I'm not even asking for 2' yet..and 2'6" is what they start at in my 4-H club where I'd like to jump her at
