    It does depend on the height of the fences bigger fences need a steadier approach and just make up the time on turns.. a couple of years ago me and my sis did a pairs jumping class which was only 2ft 6 we both galloped /or very fast canter and won the class and where 6 seconds faster that the pair that came 2nd!

    It depends most on what style of jumping you are doing for sure. There is a BIG difference in correct riding for CC and Stadium...lol!! All fun though!!

    I've galloped into a jump before and I smacked my mare into it and we ended up with 5th when we would've gotten a 1st. (we had the fastest time) So simple things like keeping a good stride is very important! So after that huge mistake on my part I have learnt that a consistent big stride is the best. When you have a long distance to cover up you can gallop but you've really got to pay attention to your take off and your horse. It also depends on your horse. Some horses like going fast to the take off and others like to have a nice consistent rythem. My horse is a quick turner and has a very versatile stride so I keep a forward moving stride and make very minor changes when I need it. A lot of horses don't like galloping into jumps and you've really got to make sure you have control over your horse. If you have a lot of control and a good stride then you can do anything! :)

    I hope that makes sense...

    Depends on the type of jump/if your at a show etc

    But I found a steady canter is best for a clear round :)
