Well a few weeks ago I went to go jump and me and Cricket had a little bit of a problem. We made some new jumps and the poles are hollow plumbing pipes and me and cricket had jumped them before with no problem. So anyways the other day I went to go jump and I just set up a small crossrail because we hadn't jumped in a while and I was trotting up to it and she refused but put her hoof on one of the rails and it made a pretty loud noise and fell... then cricket flew backwards. I hung on her neck for a little while but never fell off . Anyways I went to just make the jump into some ground poles, and Cricket was terrified of them! Once we finally got her to walk over the poles a couple of times I stopped riding because I thought I better end on a good note.
So a few days pass and I went to ride again, I set up three ground poles and rode over them through out my ride and she was great! So that made me happy. Then on my next ride I set up four ground poles and she was a little hesitant but I rode her around and through them and she was good for the most part. So finally on my next ride I was planning on jumping her. But just to be safe I set up the jump standards and just put a ground pole in between them... and when I went to ride over it she stopped and reared... when I finally got her to go over it with me on her and no one going over it before her, we stoped.
Now I am very worried that she will never jump again and I am starting to loose confidence in her jumping... I really need some advice, any would be greatly appreciated.
P.S.- She has never had a problem jumping like this before... Although we have always jumped wooden rails. And she is not young and not just learning how to jump or anything like that. So your advice is greatly appreciated.
