I need some advice from people who jump!
Yesterday, I took Comet over a jump (on the lunge line). By the end of the training session, he was trotting over it like it was nothing (is this a good thing?)
Today, I increased the height until he had to jump over it, not trot. This was 2ft.
Should I keep going?
-It has been my dream forever to jump.
-He seems to love doing it.
-I don't want him injured (I use leg protection, but my mom is worried that he'll land wrong)
-I show him Hunt Seat in local shows. I don't want this new training to throw him off.
And if I do continue:
1. How soon should I ride him over jumps after we started?
2. The lunge line likes to get caught on the standards. Tips?
But do you think I should keep going?
