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!
