Improving her jumping?

Hi, I was just wondering if any knew some grid exercises or any jumping aids I could do with my mare.

She has improved alot my doing bounces by getting back onto her hocks and then tucking her self.

Just wondering if there was anything else I could do.

U could set up four jumps "2 together with one stride in between on both sides of the arena"

Have you just been doing bounces? Or have you been incorporating the bounces in with one and two strides? Like maybe a bounce to a one to a two. Or you could even do a bounce to a one to a bounce (just make sure you set the last bounce right). You can also set up 3 one strides in a row and then 4 strides to an oxer. These are just a few thoughts. Gymnastics are so fun and so good for both rider and horse!

Just remember, when doing gridwork, make sure you keep your sessions to a minimal. It can be very exhausting for your horse. Good luck.

Today I did a very challenging gymnastic line in my lesson, it was bounce, bounce, bounce, one stide to an oxer, one stride verticle, bounce, bounce. It was very hard and challenging bc your horse has to come back to you for the last two bounces... just a thought
