Question Jumping lines

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.

How many strides between your jumps? Any less than three I would take the jump you're not doing down, school one, put it back up. Three plus I would come at the jump and circle after it, or circle to it, etc.

Canter out of the line. BUT MAKE SURE SHE'S ON THE RIGHT LEAD!!!

So it's trot over the cross rail, trot to the vertical and canter out?

That is typically how it's done. Trot in, ask for canter over cross rail and canter out on correct lead. Be sure to stay straight and keep riding after the vertical. Don't let your horse fall in and turn right away or it will quickly become habit.

So we did the line today, and she decided to trot the whole thing. Which I'm really proud of. I decided to let her decide what she wanted to do.
My work paid off. We had been working on keeping her at the same pace after the jump that she had been before the jump.

That's good. Now really test the waters and see if you can get her to canter the second part when you ask her to and not let her make the decision to either trot or canter. Mix it up and keep her guessing.

I got her to, but I think I need to fix the spacing. She felt a little funny

jumping, lengthening strides, lines, shortening strides
