Ok so I've been jumping my horse for about 5 months now and she's been doing awesome. The only thing is is that when we jump she has a tendency to drop her back feet on the poles and knocks them down. Any suggestions on how to fix this? It's not all the time, but anytime she hits the jump it's always with her back legs....
You might be sitting down too early. When you sit back down, it tells the horse that they've made it over and to drop down their back legs so if you sit down to early then she'll drop her legs early and have the rail.
Maybe set some grids up with oxers in the mix to make her open up and hopefully become more aware of where her legs are. Also if she is being lazy and if you are using boots on her back legs when jumping maybe take them off for a couple rides and maybe she might learn after a couple of knocks that being lazy isn't fun.
Well I went and rode tonight. I set up just one oxer in the arena since they took all the jumps away and made sure to stay in my two-point longer and no poles were hit! This was her first time jumping an oxer so she was really cautious about it. By the end she did hit it once (no boots on her legs) and after that she was a little scared to jump it but when she finally did she cleared it by a mile. So I think problem solved!! Thanks everyone!!!
