Exclamation My Jumping horse has learned he can run through jumps..

Hi Guys:) Ok so this is the problem I have. My horse Apollo (Hes a 11 year old quarter horse) has had jumping experience.. But lately when I go to jump him, On the ground on a lunge line, Or with me riding him, has some how figured out that he can run through jumps and not put any effort into the actual jump. I am using Basic PVC jump pipes. I do have jumping experience and im sure my trainer will help me with this if you guys don't have any ideas for this. It really bothers me to see my sound pony (He is sound. He's been to the vet recently and he is just fine so I know its nothing to do whatsoever with him being unwell). Please if anyone has any ideas let me know!

The above video shows my equipment and my horse jumping properly. He is capable and he has experience as you can see. Thank you guys!!

Oh and by the way..I did not have much jumping experience when these clips were taken but this is the only clips I have on this computer....

If you use heavier poles like wood, the horse is more likely not to run into them as they are a lot sturdier.

Ok thank you:) That helps alot:)

If you do something to MAKE him jump, like the heavy poles, it still is not what he wants to be doing. Why not find out what he enjoys, & do that? It's no fun making your horse specialize in something that he has no interest in.

(hint: he's a qh, so he might be cowy)

Is he wearing polos when you jump him? Just a thought because along with heavier poles (and square wooden poles) you would want him to have only open front boots. Basically nothing between him and a sharp,heavy pole. Also make sure that there is impulsion to jump. If I take off the leg before the jump, my girl turns into the plow queen.

I agree with the above post about the horses desire though as well.

Just some thoughts! Good luck!

Well my horse actually does enjoy it. On trails he jumps logs, ditches, anything jumpable.. that's the reason I am doing jumping. And this has only happened up until like a few weeks ago. And no.. I have no other intentions for my horse... Especially "Cowy stuff". I ride English. I am looking for training tips not changes in disciplines... and quarter horses make good jumpers, there not just western horses..
