Okay, so my mare had to rest for maybe 3 weeks (give or take a day or two) and now we're coming back into work.
Since we need to take it slow, we started with poles and cavaletti(sp?)
Now we're moving onto really tiny jumps (our average before was around 2'3")
No matter how hard I try, there's no way to get her to jump anything this tiny. Which is about 1'
I was wondering what to do, because I can't go into a two point correctly because she's not jumping (she's not pushing me out of my seat) She's just picking her feet up.
I was working over an even lower jump today, and I tried waiting for her to push me up, and there was the tiniest bit, so I forced myself into a two point and treated it like it was a jump.
So should I just put myself into a two point like I would when she's jumping? Or should I continue posting?
We're working at the trot first. My trainer doesn't want us cantering to anything yet.
Thank you so much!!
