thanks guys! And OHHHH, I see what you're saying(I think).. but I don't see how it would help(if i'm thinking of what you mean..) with him actually jumping over it. I see how it would help the straigtness issue(which gets better once I approach it a couple of times), not so much getting him to pick up his legs :/ and Equinelover, my other horse is like that, nothing really seems to phase Pyro though... I threw a big yoga ball on his side and under his legs and set it on top of his back and when I threw it on him, he looked at me, hurt. XD like, "why did you just hit me with that?" it was adorable. But his ears are always perked up whenever we go over it and he seems to like it, but like you said, he may not take it as a challenge. I probably should of phrased the question better:
How do I get him to pick up his legs when going over the jump?
he just like, walks/half jumps over it. It's really hard for me to ride it because half the time I don't know what to expect because whenever he half jumps/walks over it, he throws me off and then I throw him off and we're just really out of ballence, which isn't good when there's another jump right after it. We trot up to the jumps.. should I maybe try cantering over? Or will that just make him more off ballence?
