    Do you guide her with your legs to and over the jump? There is no harm in using a light bump with each stride up to the jump to keep her moving, paired with a cluck with each bump. About 5 strides to the jump usually helps. I'd only try this if you have the coordination to post, bump, cluck, steer, and go into two point at the right time.

    If that still doesn't help, there is no harm in using a crop... sometimes a horse will be more likely to do what you ask if it knows you have one, sometimes you don't even have to use it. If you DO, use it only as much as you need to get the desired effect, as a reinforcement of your leg.

    Good luck!

    It's easier for horses to canter jumps than to trot them. If she's at all not interested in working, or she senses the least bit of hesitation from you, there's your runout. Practice really marching her up to those jumps. Start with little cross rails, but make sure it's a solid, steady, marching forward trot. Do it until you've got her over it dead straight several times each day for about a week before you move the jump higher. Pay attention to any weaknesses in your position. Most horses run out to the same side each time. The side she runs out to is your weak side. You can "shut the door" to that side using the rein and more leg on that side.

    If she runs out or refuses, do not scold her like others have said. If you can, back her up and then trot forward back to the fence. Is she is allowed to turn away from the fence, (rider circling back) she may see it as a victory that she was allowed to turn away. Make sure you're riding both sides of the fence. Make sure you keep her dead straight on the landing side and then give a lots of pats and praise.
