    I think I'll try that. Though, I'll probably stick with a one stride and not a bounce because I've never done a bounce before. (:

    I had a horse like that. There was no such thing a trotting into a jump he would canter almost on the spot & go flat out if given half the chance!

    The previouse owner hadnt trained him at all really lol he just used to go flat stick everywhere.
    Fantastic sporting pony .... not a real good jumper though.

    I went back to basics. Flat work walk , trot, canter , halt . Every time he would rush or get heavy on my hands we went down a pace. Eg rushing into a trot I would make him walk again and only ask him to trot after his walk was relaxed and not rushed.

    It takes time , but then move to trotting poles and so forth .
    You need to teach her to be responsive.

    My sporting pony when I bought him had a great rep for being uncontrollable!
    He turned out a great show jumper and controlled enough to dabble in some western.

    Since Pebble's isn't my pony, I can't really spend extra time training her. She's a school pony.
    Pebbles is an amazing jumper, and I think it's me that's the problem. :) I'm not exactly the strongest, and I still have serious leather burns on my hands from the last riding lesson! I'm not sure if it's my posture or anything...

    O.o Is Pebbles a flea bitten small pony?
