    If you horse doesnt like cross poles the key is to jump them alot - make sure you always include them whenever you jump.

    They don't have to be high just there - make it so you are comfortable with them so you in turn give your horse confidence as that is the key

    If you arent wanting to compete at that height - theres no hurry just stick to what you are comfortable with and then move up slowly...

    I use to have a barrier jumping over 3ft until someone said to me the horse doesnt realise the jumps gone up 5 cms.. she's only picking up on you and its so true...

    Take your time and don't put too much pressure on yourself to go high soon - remember to have FUN!

    Grids are great exercises as they set the horse up for the jump at the right take off point so you can pretty much jump on a long rein - not only will it build up your confidence (And your horses) but it will also allow you to work on your position :)

    Well its not that he hates them but he doesnt like the way they are shaped. Her prefers the verticals :) he did end up jumping it I made sure. For now I am staying to the lower jumps for now. I am not going to jump any higher since I myself am not comfortable and my horse wont jump anything higher than 2'6 for now. Thank you for the advice :)
