I would love to answer any jumping questions that any of you have!!!!!!
I really enjoy when I get questions, because I love to help people with any troubles they are having with their horses (jumping in particular).
I have done that before, this is my stratagy. I worked with ground poles and graduatly moved up about 2 inches. Free jumping actually gets them to learn better. Once you are up to about 1ft with the free jumping, then go to 1ft in the saddle. So on so forth, until you get to the hieght you want to stay at!!!!!
I hope this helped you:) just keep in mind that all horses are different, and that might work with some horses but not others!!!
