I do. Horses are naturally lazy creatures (comes from being in the wild...they needed to conserve their energy for when they had to run from a predator) and look at release of pressure as a reward. So when they connect an action with having to work extra hard and then connecting another action with not having to work so hard, they will most always go with option #2.

Erm if its -20 she could be cold backed

We have a heated barn and she has blankets on and our indoor arena is heated, so unless cold backed means anything but just well...cold, I don't think she is :p

Noooo! I meant after the jump on the track, so after the horse lands and starts getting fast, there are poles there he or she has to pick their feet up for. It wouldn't be fair just to put them in the landing area (I'm not a jumper so idk what the term is) because like you said, they could trip. Just I know when my horse is a little strong, rather than let him have open space, I put a few ground poles down the middle of the arena and we work on those for a bit.

I was just thinking earlier too, destiny won't slow down to accomodate to poles, we've had times where we were working on poles and she just dove through them no matter if she stepped on them.. But it's worth a shot :)

Yeah like I said, no ways a jumper.. I have absolutely no experience. But ground poles (spaced out appropriately of course!) helped my boy. I use wood ones rather than PVC, he's not fond of hitting them.

I do hope you guys work it out though.. :)

People think I'm suicidal- I'm just a little barmy. My fave horses are the ones that rear buck bolt spin :)

Do I have problems??????

You sound like a perfectly sane thrill seeker
