    Starting To Jump

    So my horse (7yr old OTTB) hasn't done too much jumping, but when he has he has a tendency to try and duck out (even though I don't let him).
    I want to start jumping more often, any tips on how I should go about it so he doesn't dread it so much?

    Mix it up.
    Do bounces , and lots of combos. And lots of different heights...
    Sometimes after the jump let him have a canter around the arena or wherever you ride. Good luck hope I helped

    Dressage, Dressage, Dressage, Dressage.

    Jumping is Dressage with Speed Bumps - you can never go wrong when you work on dressage, and that will not only cure your faults in the saddle, but it will also cure your horse from veering out.

    Remember 99% of errors that occur while jumping, is rider. I would love to see a video of you jumping if possible, to see what exactly is going on.

    What are you doing when he veers out?

    I'm glad to hear that you don't ever let him turn out. After a bit of time jumping him, he will give up trying to turn out with you, because he will know that he can't get away from it. = D

    How often are you riding him on the flat? And then how often are you jumping him?

    Its good your not letting him pull out, so your letting him know your in charge. How high are you going with him at the moment?
