training a WP horse for jumping
my horse isnt really a Western pleasure horse, my 4h leader said he was poss. Trained for it though because of his low headset, in 4h Day does speed, reining, getting into cowing(sorting, boxong, cutting). And I sometime ride in english just for fun at home but we don't show in it, my friends and I ride together and their horses are pro. Trained for jumping. I would like to try it myself it seems very fun, not for showing or competeing just for fun at home. How would I trian my horse to jump, he does it on his own really, he follows the others over the logs on trails and ect. But id like to train him to accually jump on his own without following the others, how would I do that??? Im not sure what breed Day is, I got him from a guy who knows nothing about horse, I was told he looks thoroghbred, arabian, spotted saddle horse....... im not sure, if I can't use him for jumping I don't care, I just thought it would be something fun to do.
It may not be easy getting there, but once your there you relise it was worth it.
