Since I'm just sticking with small simple things, I thought I should bring in lines to brush up on our collecting strides before and after jumps.
I have a quick question.
I have a line, (Low cross rail to a 1'6" vertical)
I like being able to over one jump at a time just to let us both get familiar with the jumps first.
My question is
My line is near the rail and our indoor is very squarish.
For the cross rail, I should come at it like I'm doing the line, (at the posting trot) go over and return to the rail correct?
Then for the vertical afterwards, come down the rail and jump it at a slight angle? I don't want to jump it in the opposite direction that I would be going at it
(Also doing this will help her learn to trot, not canter after the jump unless asked)
Or should I let her trot in and canter out (when doing the line completely?)
Thank you very much for the help!
Oh, I think there would be one decent canter stride inbetween and about 2 trot strides.
We're pretty lengthy still.
