Jumping exercises/correct leads?
Okay, so I am training my project horse out of just doing trails, into being pretty much an eventing horse, but I have 2 questions/problems. Since he was a trail horse, he was never told what was wrong and what was right with his gaits, neck, etc., so he ALWAYS takes his right lead, but it is nearly impossible for him to get his left lead unless we get it over a ground pole or jump. Suggestions? Also, I need some good jumping exercises. We only jump up to 2' for now, but we get bored like that, and I don't want to move up until we are both ready, which we aren't. Any suggestions on good jumping exercises I could do? I have 6 jumps and 9 poles if that helps any.
