This is the only mention of anything being "back yard".. but building little back yard jumps is exactly that.. I hate to burst your bubble.

Even if you've jumped logs on the trail, it's a completely different situation than doing actual jumping...Even if your trainer "ditched" you, that's just coming up with an excuse.

Even if you aren't going to find a trainer to help you you need to start out little and slow with your horse. It doesn't matter if he's jumped over a few logs on trail rides..He's not used to jumping and he doesn't know what you're asking him to do, much less do it correctly.. Just because you can jump your cousin's horse doesn't mean you can expect to hop on your horse and he know that you want him to jump...If you want to start your horse jumping, do it correctly and work your way up..Be a safe and responsible owner and rider.

Bonco is the only person in the thread that has said it so don't get your feathers ruffled at everyone else who are really just trying to help you.

When I say jump, I mean correctly jumping, over jumps, after being trained to jump..Not jumping a log on a trail ride.. Mine have jumped over a log on a trail ride. Does that mean they know how to jump over a jump? No. Does that mean I think my horse is now a jumper? No.. That just means that my horse has jumped a log on a trail ride.. nothing more.. If you want to teach your horse to jump for fun, fine, but do it correctly and slowly so neither of you get hurt.

I never said I wasn't doing it correctly or slowly. I can't canter so going slowly is the only choice I have. And what is the big deal jumping a log or jumping a pole in a ring cause I don't really see one. Just because I'm not most experienced rider in the world doesn't mean I don't know what I'm doing.

Not being mean, but you said above that you can't canter. Most horses upon landing from jumps canter away from them. I would be very, very careful, for both your sake and your horse's.

I know but shaggy's not a show jumper trained to that so he won't stop in the middle of a course.

Can anyone just tell me how I get him to lift his feet? That's all I really want to know.

If you cannot canter, you certainly should not be trying to jump..

I agree with everything DR said, get a trainer or take some lessons. Just because your horse has jumped a log before, does not mean it should be jumping a 2 foot jump.

Consider the advice that has been given to you before an accident occurs.
