    Not jump...... There isn't much to it. Flat work does wonders to both horse and rider

    What is the reason neither is able to be ridden at this time (aside from the one not being broken as well)? That will play heavily into what you can/can't do with them for the time being.
    If their health allows, focus on groundwork, building basic manners, etc.

    First of all, please make an effort to quit the text talk and abbreviated sentences when asking question on a public forum. It's very hard to understand.

    Second, if the horses aren't ready to jump, don't jump them! They need solid training on the flat before they should even be able to LOOK at a jump. Break the unbroken horse, find someone to work with both of them. It doesn't sound like you're overly qualified to be re-breaking or breaking a horse at this point, it's best to let a professional work with them if you've never had first-hand experience in starting a horse.

    This is going to sound rude but I have no other way to say it. Get over your self and don't jump. I've owned Sona for 4 years and I'm just now starting to jump her. All that ground work has really paid off 2! Do not rush them into jumping. You will end up with crazy horses or broken ones. There are a lot of muscles involved in jumping. If they arent properly conditioned on the flat they with just brake over jumps. I'm sorry if that's not what you want to hear but its the truth.

    Sorry for the double post but I just looked in your barn. Lolly is only 4 she shouldnt be jumping yet. That's just one more thing to take into consideration.

    Yes, I agree with the others. You should wait. Again...I know it's hard, you should see the AMAZING cross country field at my stable....so I know!!!

    It only can take just 1 bad accident with a jump for a horse to NEVER have the ability to jump again...mentally or physically. You don't want to ruin them on jumping before they are even physically ready....it would be such a waste of everything you have been trying to do.
