Smile Teaching a horse to jump

How should you start? , By free lunging over very small ones and work your way up slowly? Or do you have better ideas !?

Getting a coach is a good first step if you do not know the process of training a horse for jumping

Remember that the horse already can jump when he is born, but I think your question is what signal you have to give to the horse to let him jump and how you have to learn that that signal means "jump" to the horse.

As said, the best thing to do if you haven't done this before is asking a trainer for help.
