When you put the jumps up higher make sure you have something underneath as a filler and a good solid ground line. Horses don't like to jump really airy jumps as they can't judge the distance as well.

Ideas for fillers:
- cones
- tires
- boxes or crates
- barrels - Make sure you secure them somehow though. If your horse hits it by accident it could roll forward and the horse could trip over it. Also have a ground line in front of the barrel. The horse will look at the base and could not realize that it's round and that he has to jump sooner).

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon
