I am trying to "bombproof" my yearling filly, so I'm working on everything I can possibly think of! Anyway, I would like to start setting up small crossrails (no higher than 3-6 inches?) when lunging to get her to pick up her feet and use her body. However, she just either 1) stops at the jump and walks over or 2) plows through the jump and knocks everything over.
Does anyone have any suggestions on getting her to get over it correctly? I've never trained a horse to jump, they've always had pretraining and I've just "helped" them along Thanks much!
