Exercises to help with jumping!

Hi, I'm looking for some exercises to do with my horse, (and rider exercises) to help with jumping. Whether these be groundwork exercises, flat work, or jumping exercises.

Also, what exercises do you do to help keep yourself in shape?

And now that I am writing this...any simple stretches, for horse and rider to do before/after work outs.
Thank you! :)

My favorite exercises that all of my horses do, no matter what level they are in -
  • Make 3-6 cross rails leaving 3m between them. Eventually you can make those cross rails into verticals, older horses jumps verticals like this up to 110cm.
  • Make 3-6 cross rails/ verticals (you can make first 2 cross rails, last 2 verticals and so), 3m between them, then 6m and a higher vertical, 6.5m and even higher oxer.
Of course you can adjust those distances to your horse, if you have a really small/really big horse, but these are standart distances. These exercises makes horse`s jump more powerful, and it also improves your balance. Main thing to remember while jumping these - jump with a gentle hand, drop your reins if you need that, but never disturb him jumping this.!
