ok then. we will try what you have stated and we will see how we go.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Pumpkinzmyboy, to lower Chinga's jumps is my decision. But I think we will lower them and see how things workout. I had a lesson today, but could not canter or jump for certain reasons.

Thanks for your advice. You may have noticed that I don't like people messing with my training progamme. But when you put it the way you did it helps alot. So thank you and I apoligize for not listening to you in the first place.

Did you get a vet when the bridle cut up Pumpkins mouth? Depending where he is cut it could get infected and cause an abcess. You should always check your gear before you ride and it is quite easy to tell if leather is on it's way out.

My advice is to listen to what a lot of people are telling you on here, there are some great ideas. PLEASE take Chinga back to some gymnastic excercises to help with his jumping; If you are training your horse to jump you should have some idea of what these are. I really hope you start to work closely with a trainer, I think it would be in your best interests.

To put it in perspective, i've been training my gelding to jump. I've had him coming close to a year. (you'll have to convert this to feet to understand what i'm saying) I've been teaching him to jump, find his stride, keep a steady rythym and bend, have a good approach etc this whole time, yet I am still only competing at 55cm and training at 65cm. I know he has the ability to one day do 1m plus, but becuase I want him to do it calm, controlled and supple I am taking him slow and making sure he has a good foundation.

I am hoping to start working closly with a jumping trainer for Chinga's jumping. This will help both of us, my instructors daughter. Who is also my instructor may be coming out once a week to help Chinga and I with out jumping. Because we are only jumping once a week that will be good.

no. it wasn't checked by a vet though i've been keeping a close eye on it. It's looking really good at the moment, but if anything looks funny, i'll get mum to call the vet to check it out. the gum only got knocked a bit and the tiny amount of bleeding stop almost right away. he's now got a new bridal, so nothing more should break but from, now on, i will most certainly be checking the tack, because next time might be alot worse.

thanxs for the concern, i will do as u say with the tack in future.

Today, I rode Chinga and did some lunging with him. He only walked on the lunge but still did alot better then what he used to do. My aunty got on Pumpkin and Chinga and both horses got a butt kicking. She fell off Pumpkin but she is a brilliant rider.

Hey,

Well today Chinga and I went for a ride after my lesson. In my lesson I rode Billy and worked on my canter. My trainer said I did really well and that she is thinking of moving me to a higher group *even though I ride senoirs*

Then when I rode Chinga we worked on collecting and exstending our trot and on our canter. Plus trot and canter polls and even some 30cm jumps. He did well at all of it. We had one buck today. I wasn't happy with this so he got worked slightly harder then I planned. All up a great ride and he has improved alot!
