Should a horse be round when it's jumping?
I find that my horse and I both perform best in show jumping when his neck is free, forward, and he has complete movement of his head and neck over the jumps. Lately, however, I've noticed that many people ride with their horses very round; neck arched, head almost straight...you know what that's like. I'm not saying that my way or the others' way is bad. But what do you do? Should I start jumping my horse more round? We do dressage and he sure knows how to get on the bit. But for jumping? Insight please. (:
