R4L I disagree that grids stop rushing. They made my gelding worse - he rushes when he gets over-excited, and grids just encouraged him to build and build and build until he was completely out of control.

Hey blue. There are grids for different purposes. You must apply the right grid to solve problems

The grids "designed" to stop rushing made my boy worse. Much worse. Just sayin' :)

Hoanna is doing perfectly fine now. My trainer is now the only one riding her over jumps, at least the bigger ones anyways. Turns out I was making her anxious by being anxious myself.

^ as is so often the case! Especially with green horses. I know my gelding, if I'm nervous about jumping something, will ALWAYS either rush or refuse it, but if I'm confident he'll jump it every time no matter what it is.

How high are you jumping? At what speed?

It's amazing how intune they are to us. Hoanna is an introvert like myself and really needs a leader to show her everything is alright. I finally got her over a couple jumps today in a lesson with my instructor/Hoanna's trainer. She's starting to trust me again over jumps. I just have to be more assertive and more of a leader.

Haha heck yes! In my case, I can jump 3'4"+ over showjumping style fences, no problem at all... solid fences scare me and by extension my horse occasionally refuses 18" XC fences! He has done much much higher, competitively, so it's ALL me.
