    Silly Question

    Let's say you're jumping and in & out. Your horse jumps the in, but then runs out at the out. Do you go back through the entire thing or do you have to just jump the out part? What can I say. I'm stuck at work, bored and overthinking stuff right now.

    My friend had this problem.. By in and out do you mean 1 stride? I know different people have different definitions of that(;

    Yes, a one stride.

    Hmm. It would be best to go back and do the other thing again, but at the opposite direction of where they refused. For example, your horse veers off to the left, make sure you turn him to the right, and do the whole thing off of the right lead.

    If you're at a show and it's an A-B jump, you jump the whole thing again. If they're each a different number, then only the refused jump.

    Schooling, I jump through the whole thing again. Sometimes it's too tight between the jumps to get the horse into it really straight, which is needed if they already refused it once.

    Thanks, that makes sense.

    Not silly, if you were competing and got it wrong, you would be kicking yourself for not asking.
    In SJ, in a combination (A, B etc) if your horse runs out at B or even C, you have to circle back to begin again at A. Of course if your horse demolishes the jump you have to wait for the rebuild.
    On XC however, if your horse balks at B, you just have to re-do B not the whole combination.

    Oh, so it is different between stadium and XC? That's good to know. I never would have thought that would be different. Guess it wasn't a silly question after all.

    I thought it was the same too. Surprised when I found out it wasn't!

    Yeah, just as what was stated. I remember being at the first HT of the 2010 season back in May.

    The girl who rode stadium before Nelson and I, got elliminated at the combination because they refused fence B out of the combo. She circled and did only fence B - got the whistle.

    Poor thing left the arena bawling her eyes out. But, I bet she learnt from that, to always do the whole combo over.
