is that the paint horse from your other threads ? He didnt look like he was over jumping to me
Has he been over jumping for long? And how often do you jump him?
Sorry for the questions, LOL, but maybe if he has been over jumping for just a little while, maybe after lots of training and jumping he will calm down abit and realize the jumps won't eat him, and then he will just jump normally.
If you aren't comfortable jumping him often, then maybe ask your trainer to jump him for you for abit and see how that goes.
|From your last post about him you said he was pretty green to jumping... Also according to your thread you've only had him a few weeks.. That is definitely not long enough to tell if he'll make a jumper or not, just give him more time. Also, try riding through a tight grid of 3 or 4 jumps with canter poles between. Like trot pole, jump, 2 canter poles, jump, 2 canter poles, jump. Etc. Or even without the poles. When he is in a grid he has to adjust his stride to fit the grid and if the striding is short, he'll have a hard time over jumping and he may figure out that he doesnt HAVE to jump that big. If you can't handle his jump, find someone who can. Why can't your trainer ride and work with him?? Also like someone else said, if jumping isn't his thing then just ride him dressage, or sell him as a dressage horse.|
