    Angry Jumping problem

    Only just a few days ago Sam and I had a big fall on a jump, the whole thing collapsed on us. Then I found out what the problem was, Sam and I was jumping too late, and were going almost virtically up to go over the jump and in a result we knocked it over.
    Is there anything that can help us go over the jump at the right time and not to close?
    Other than that we are a good jumping team.
    Thanx and please help.

    We had the same problem.
    I tried putting a pole where the horse should be taking off. That worked very well!

    Good idea, You can also use a grid to get the horse to space its canter/jumps before the main jump.

    This would be 2 or 3 jumps spaced out with 1 to 3 strides in between. The striding will vary and will make the horse pay attention to what it is doing. The jumps are usually not more than 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 feet and the highest or widest one being at the end.

    It is important that you space them correctly and I suggest you get yourself started with someone that knows how to do this so you can see the spacing involved.

    Put four canter polls before the jump and one after the jump. This will put him in the correct spot. Then gradually take the poles away starting with the one farthest from the jump.

    Its very important to judge your strides. Practice with some canter poles maybe. But you really need to be able to feel your horse's stride and know exactly where his legs are on the ground, that way you can create the perfect takeoff point using a crescendo to the jump
