teaching to jump?
I'm looking for advice for teaching my horse to enjoy jumping. I've worked him over poles off and on for a couple years, w/t/c, and he is fine with them. He doesn't avoid them or anything, he does tend to clip them a good amount of the time, so I know he needs more work with that. But i've tried putting him over a few small jumps, (like crossrails that at the highest part of the x are MAYBE a foot, very small in the middle) and he NEVER wanted to go over. He would do it, but he didn't want to. I only did in the first place because I thought he might get more excited about an actual little jump then poles. Needless to stay, I quit trying, as I don't want to ruin any chance of him enjoying it in the future.. is there more I can do to make him want to jump, or is it possible that he'll just never be interested? Thanks =]
