Teaching my Horse to Show Jump


I recently bought an Australian Stock Horse (about 2 months or so ago) and I love him to pieces and he is an amazing dressage horse, however he has NO jumping experience, I am trying to teach him and my instructor and I have got him up to jumping a 55cm course with only a few faults, however I have notices he is not taking off from his hind quarters, like from the front instead, he glides over the jump rater than jumping them.

Does anyone have any advice onto how I can get him jumping correctly?

Thank you so much x

I believe that when a horse glides over a jump that he's loving jumping. Most dressage horses are good jumpers so just keep practising

55cm is hardly a jump so he does not have to make any effort. A lot of horses are like this.
He needs to do grid work with questions to make him think and a bigger fence at the end of the line. Odds are that he will jump something bigger with ease when on a correct stride for it.
