How often do you actually jump your ponies that you ride competitively as jumpers?
I ride Kai about 5 or 6 times a week and out of those rides we jump about about 3 or 4 times a week. (Also depending on the weather and my work schedule) Do you think this is too much jumping or not enough? He is 19 in October and the heightest we train is 1.05m, but most of the jumps we do are 75/85cm. We compete at no higher than 85cm so far. I am worried about the poor little guys legs and the stress on them from a course any higher! He hardly ever refuses anything, usually only when it is a new looking jump that I have set up at 1.05m he might refuse or crazy filler boards with black and red diamonds (grrr, ) But I always get him over.
So tell me how often you train, why and a little background on your ponies as well if you like.
