Some of you have read the other post I made in General...a brief history...I long while back I trained a 6 year old (now 7) to jump with the help of a friend (we both worked with him) and now this girl is riding him and is totally ruining him. I know she won't listen to me, nor don't think the BO will do anything about it, so I'm thinking that I'll just have to switch and find a better jumping horse.
There is a 6 year old Paint mare...14.2 Hh that has the movement and speed to make a great Hunter. I was thinking of putting some work into her and turning her into my jumping horse since that is what she would do best at.
But since I haven't done it in at least 6 months I'm stumped on how I should start. She's already gone over small cross-rails and did good, but needs work.
First, of course, I'll be doing groundwork to get her used to people being in two-point on her back, and then listening to my cues and get bonded with her and also get her respect (cause she can be bratty at times). I've already done some groundwork and she's doing good now, so it's just in saddle work that she needs.
What is your suggestion to first start her? Once I get the feel of starting out I can finish her, but can't remember how me and my friend started out the other horse
