    Jumping Training Stuff

    Clever title, eh?

    So I am now without a trainer, riding by myself for the most part. I want to keep Leia in good jumping shape and continue to train her correctly and keep her doing what she would do in lessons, if not a little more. I would like to set up funky jumps that she's not used to that we may come across and jumps that help her form. I know gymnastics help, and we've done a lot of that. I haven't tried big bounce jumps yet, only about 2ft so far. And I want to set up a triple bar but haven't gotten around to it. I've also done fans, oxers, skinnies... and that's it. Theres a coup at the barn that I wanna set up for her to jump and I know that the jump below helps make them snap their knees up better:

    Any other things?

    Also what maneuvers would you suggest? We're wicked awesome at rollbacks. :)
    Right now we jump 2'6" - 2'9"

    The best one I know for tightening up the jump is square oxers and getting the horse there slightly deep so he really has to use his hind end to get over it. Putting a ground pole 9' after it for a balanced landing stride brings up the difficulty level a bit.

    That sounds neat o.o thanks!

    Another good fun one is vertical > 9' to ground pole > 9' to another vertical. Basically an in and out with a ground pole half way. Something about that pole on the ground keeps them from just letting it all hang out after the jump. Keeps them nice and bouncy!

    I jump with 2 poles out, one 9' before the jump and one 9' after. Start low and then continue to raise it bit by bit, it makes the horse work to get over it and also balances them back.

    A jump grid of at least 4 jumps, especially with a bounce will help improve a horse's jumping.
