    What do you mean by "turning jumper turns"?

    Do you mean turning to go to the next jump in a course?

    Come out of your jump, recover and look straight for your next jump. Not down at it, to it. If you are riding correctly your horse will follow your seatbones and turn, always know where your next jump is before you land.

    I was taught to use the outside aids. Turning with your outside rein and leg.

    Lots of seat and leg aids, if you pull your horse around a turn by it's mouth you're going to have a messy canter and lose the impulsion you need to get yourself around a course. Learn to support your horse around tight turns first (on the flat) before you try to utilize them on course. Some crazy riders can start their turn mid-jump, if the horse is tidy and trained well enough (ie: look for your next jump, ensure your horse is going to land on the correct lead and immediately ask for the bend into the turn). Sit up, do NOT tip to the inside, and keep contact. The last thing you want to do is completely drop your horse during a turn or at the base of a jump.
