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.
    Whew! Putting them on the track about 5-6 strides away from the landing couldn't hurt (but you know your horse better, so if you think it could be dangerous, don't attempt it!), I just wanted to make sure you weren't telling her to put them right after the jump! Sooo many people do it and it's bad, bad, bad!

    Personally I wouldn't take this horse near a raised object until she can trot ground poles quietly. I'm sorry, but in her current state, she's an ER visit waiting to happen.

    She can trot poles quietly though, she can do any kind of pole quietly like an angel, it's just the jumps that get to her.

    Ahh, maybe trot poles and just mix in one teeny tiny cross rail into the mix and then build upon that?

    I think that's what we'll do, a recurring response seems to be one tiny crossrail and tons of poles. What do you think of having some trot poles leading into a crossrail and then some trot poles after (not directly on landing) and another single pole spaced like, 2 canter strides after that and a goal between the second set of trot poles and final pole would be to halt her?

    Depends. How strong is your flat work? Two strides is kind of hard to get an "up" horse back to trot.

    I'd try the boring grid. Right down the centerline, 4 poles 4'6" apart, 9' to cross rail, 9' to 4 more poles 4'6" apart and trot the entire thing. No canter. Get to end, stop, turn around and repeat. Go over it until she's dead bored with it.

    Get her bored, okay. Our flat work is pretty good, we did take a three month break from jumping a while ago to make sure she was balanced and had good muscle. So, grid work then?

    Yes, but only stuff where the grids are laid out symmetrically, so she has to go back over them. That way there is no glory for getting through the thing. That being said, do reward her big time every time she does it quietly. If you can, ignore her tantrums and just ride her through the bad trips like all is right with the world.
