"Walking" Over The Jump? :O
So I started jumping about three years ago. I had ridden English for leg muscle all my life but never competed. Well, I also just retired my jumping mare Annie from the show ring because of her lameness issues. Now I'm training my rescue horse Rebel to be my new jumper/ cross country mount.
I had been jumping him over ghetto trail jumps because I haven't been able to get him to my trainers arena with all her clients. I finall got an opening today and my trainer is noting he "walks" over the jumps rather than actually jumping. Trainer says she has ideas for helping it, but we ran out of lesson time so we didn't get to actually do it. She is going to email me some pictures tonight so I'll get those, but for now how can I make his jumps cleaner without the half-hearted "walking"?
