How to make him slowwww down??
My horse will be almost lazy on the flat, but as soon as we start jumping he gets really excited. He has had everything checked and is healthy, it's just a behavior problem.
Usually, we'll go over a jump and he'll take off. Sometimes he throws his head down and bucks, or if we're outside, he TEARS. In fact, I fell off yesterday and got a mild concussion (obviously I won't be riding again til at least Saturday).
This is definitely something where I need help from a trainer, but until then, how should I help fix this? His bit is fine when we jump inside (only that issue with throwing his head down and bucking), but should I try something else? I ride in a kimberwick.
