    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).
