Hi everyone! So I have been having some issues with getting my horse to consistently jump over our small jumps. We will be trotting towards the jump and as soon as he gets up to it, he slows down and walks over it. Even when approaching the jump at a canter, he slows right down and slowly steps over it. I've made sure I'm looking past the jump, not down at it. I stay with him through out the whole process to make sure he knows I'm there with him and for some reason he still slows down.
I have a hunch that he could just be lazy and I'm not pushing him hard enough, but I was curious if anyone has any tips. I've jumped other horses and have had no issues with this before, so I'm just a little stuck.
Any advice? :)
