I'm taking a barrel horse, and trying to turn him into a jumping/dressage horse.
Any suggestions on the jumping front?

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!!!

Dressage Dressage Dressage is the answer. Incorporating trot poles, to cavaletti's to x rails

It isn't about just going around over fences, all on the forehand. The trick is to get your horse working off their back end, rounded, rhythmical, fluid, steady. Not plowing around on their forehand.

Working on the flat, incorporating 1 fence at a time. Rhythmic, steady, fluid. On approach, take off and landing.
