My horse comes from behind better if I put a ground pole 9' in front and 9' behind the obstacle. If yours has a long stride, 10' is better, but it makes them use their hind end better since they have to think about the poles in addition to the jump.
Gymnastics gymnastics and more gymnastics! Esp bounces. Lots and lots of them. Right now in my ring I have : (bounce)(bounce)(2 stride)(bounce)(bounce)(bounce) and (bounce)(bounce)(one stride)(vertical)(2 stride)(oxer). Takes lots of poles but completely worth it. :)
Hmm, well since this was my 2nd time jumping him hahha, were still getting used to each other and my position is leveling slowly. Thanks for all the ideas guys can't wait for nice sunny day so I can set up a good grid
