Improving Her Confidence
Well my confidence has improved (YAY), so 2' doesn't seem like a lo anymore but now the horse I'm working with, she has confidence issues.
For most of the last part of summer, I've been working her consistantly over 15"-18" jumps, crossrails, boxes, verticals, oxers. Well she had her first English lesson EVER and she balked on the 21" cross rail. It was her biggest crossrail. We went over it twice and then decided to knock it down =D
Terminator (the mare's name), is a great little jumper. She's got great knees and loves her 18" crossrails. But I want her to gain more confidence over jumps so I'm just wondering the best way to do that.
I've never relly progressed a horse over jumps too much. I more or less train them in the basics and then my sister ends up riding them and teaching them to jump. (Except Goose but he flew over jumps... he loved them).
So I'm just asking for advice, just to make sure. I don't want to ruin my poor girl.
