Turner's a real Turner!!! lol

Omg it was the funniest thing yesterday i was at the barn riding my big 17h bay fox hunter Turner.We jump a little and only goes about a foot.But for some reason yesterday after we did our little grass jump he exicuted a perfect bending line by turning and heading straight for a 3 foot jump i was so unprepared so we JUMPED IT !!!!
So i guess what i really need to do is right as i reach the ground sit up and get ready to steer.ANY tips or feedback? :o

so you were heading for a 1 foot jump ( it sounds like a 1 foot) and he turned to a 3 foot jump? well i'm glad he did it fine and no one got hurt ,but he really shouldn't be turning away from the way you wanted to go it could be dangerous...anyway now that he can do it and you know he can i'd want ot work up to it slowly with a trainer.

yep, you need to always be prepared for what your horse does....what if he had decided to reject the jump? you should always be sterring and under control!
