You can also check out the Texas Hunter Jumper site, www.thja.org for a list of trainers and barns in your area.

The truth is, everyone learns at their own rate. Some people are up and cantering a whole course in no time, and for others, they are trotting courses for at least a year before attempting to canter. It all depends. Some great exercises to build strength include riding without stirrups. This is brutal but it really does help...even if you can only go one time around the ring. Other great things would be trotting and cantering in two-point.

Yea I have had to ride without stirups before. OHHHH what fun that is I just havent done it in a really long time. I havent ridden in like a month because since we are moving to to texas I had to quit leasing the mare I was riding and the only horse I own is only two and wont be broke until next fall.
Thats why I cant wait to get down to Texas and start taking lessons on a lesson horse and then if I really like jumpping start looking for a horse that is pretty well trained in jumping.


Thanks for all the info and the website too Irish rider

I do not do jumping at this level so for me and the others at this level it would help.
Ok, Weeks numbered
  1. Work on position, getting more forward in the saddle, be able to go through all the paces nicly. Might start two point here.
  2. Work on two point, getting a solid leg at trot, then at canter. Work on keeping uper body up, shoulders back, back flat.
  3. Keep up the tow point.
  4. same
  5. Add poles maybe.
  6. same
  7. same
  8. same
  9. same
  10. same
  11. Might jump small cross rail here. Work on not getting ahead or left behind.
  12. same
  13. same
  14. same
  15. same
  16. same
  17. same raise hight little by little
  18. same
  19. same
  20. same
  21. Maybe start a small combo

Well, the OP also stated that they had no jumping training, just experiance over logs on trails in which doesn't give you any proper training.

I havent really done any of these things. I have only really practiced going in a straight line over poles and stuff like that. I really need to start riding again so I can practice and take some lessons from a trainer.
I have only had lessons in english eq and pleasure is the form the same for that or is it different?

If you are that newish you probably need 6 months on the flat before you even consider jumping anything.

You will have to learn a whole new jumping position, but your base will be a great start! You will prob do awhile on the flat, then work on small x rails! Have any more questions? Message me!
