    Red face Jumping Noob!

    I am wanting to teach my horse how to jump. She is an 8 year old extremely tall Saddlebred mare and I think she can do it. She doesn't spook and It's something new for her to do.

    Now, I'm a total noob at jumping and I think it sounds like a lot of fun to do! I've rode in every saddle you could think of besides dressage. But I can ride in anything with ease!!

    Could someone give me the 411 on how to train a horse how to jump? I can get a good idea of how to do it. Like having her walk and trot over poles and then eventually raise it up higher. But is this the correct way of doing it?

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    If you have no experience training a horse to jump, I advise finding someone to help you, whether a trainer, riding instructor, or a friend or family member who has trained a green jumper before. Jumping can be a touchy thing, and easy to sour a horse on if not introduced correctly, or if the rider is off-balance or inexperienced with jumping.
