Jump training advice?
Okayy soo, I have a 6 year old TB, who I've completely trained myself, and for the last 2 months or so he has been consistently jumping 18" crossrails and now and then some verticals at about the same height. He is starting to get really lazy over them at the trot and canter, even the 2' vertical I was jumping today he seemed to not pick his feet up very well. I love him to death, and I am so proud of him, but I was just wondering if you guys thought that maybe I should start moving him up in height? I don't want him backing off of them, and I know if he starts to do that, then I should back up a notch. I've never trained a horse to jump before, I've been jumping for a long time, just wanted to hear someone else's opinion on this?
