I'm currently leasing a thoroughbred named Simon. He's athletic and talented but out.of.control on a jumping course. I need tips to help him relax instead of charge at the jumps.
Methods I've tried:
1) Halting before and after jumps.
2)Giving him a very loose rein.
3) Constant circling.
He's in a snaffle and I refuse to upgrade him to a harsher bit because that's not what he needs. Any advice?
