Again, please get video footage so that we can see what exactly is going on.

A video requires a camera, which I do not own, nor have the money to buy

Hmmm...I think you just need to do some exercises with her then. If she knows how to use her hind end well, just try experimenting with different things until something works, like ground poles etc. And everybody who said 'more dressage' is right! I think it would be worthwhile to work with a jumper trainer occasionally too if you have the money. Let us know how it goes!

I have found that the best thing to do are grids/gymnastics. They are somewhat difficult to set up, but they help a lot. This then makes the horse have to think about the jumps and slow down their thoughts. Also if the horse rushes one they will get into the next jump badly and learn from their mistakes. I wouldn't really recommend doing grids though if you aren't very experienced and don't have a trainer...

I agree, MIEventer...if I see that you have posted somewhere I always go and read what you say. And it is always great advice! :)
