Jumping Question

My mare loves to jump...over higher jumps. But if there is low jumps, she kinda gets lazy. She won't pick up her feet! She does great with higher ones, but over little ones, she just gets really lazy..any tips?

More impulsion?
That helped with cutters jumping
That's all I got though

Try gymnastics- trot poles to a little cross-rail, a bounce, or any small gymnastics where she'll have to be pretty technical/precise.

My horse was the same, but I took her front and back boots of and replaced plastic poles for wooden poles to pick her feet up.

I also started doing cross country, and now she's amazing at everything

For gymnastics, I will do a pole, one stride, then a bounce to help them pick up their feet. After that, do like 4 bounces in a row. That's always helped my girls!

Try grid work. That might just give her something to think about and will lift her legs better. Good luck.

I suggest grid work and xcountry jumps- solids- ditches are great too- I have the same problem- my horse is 17.2 so he doesn't think anything is worth jumping unless its about 3'6 hahaha

I'd go with Xivo...

Try more solid jumps, not necessarily cross country but like solid wood poles so when they knowck it over, they're like "WHOA! There's something there O.o"

Their faces are priceless =P
