Ok so I don't (at the moment) plan on doing any serious jumping, just messing around in the yard.
I have a 6-yr-old Quarab mare who I know had some jumping training from her previous owners as well as being in pony club with their daughter for a year. THey told me she loves to do it & will jump anything, which I know is true
Anywho, today I set some small jumps up in my yard (actually they were fence posts layed across 2 overturned stumps) Barely a foot high. I ride in a western saddle & she can be lazy (especially in the yard) but I found when I point her toward a jump & smooch she runs for it right away & pops over.
The issue is as soon as she lands she bolts & runs past the next one! This is the only thing iv found that makes her do this
Just wondering the best way to keep her focused.
What do the experts have to say.
Again I understand the basics of jumping but I have not done much other than the occasional log on the trail.
