I use a crop to get my horse going at a good pace...if she doesn't she will do a weird hop thing or walk over it or stop and stare!

So if you don't use a crop you might try it. I just show my horse it and she goes or I do a tap.

The only thing about my horse is she has never done jumping and I umm...jumped in a western saddle...yea,good times!..not really..She kinda stood on her hindlegs instead of jumping over it she jumped kinda in the air and came over it and when she landed her end came way up in the air and I flew out of my seat and onto her neck..I ended up hitting my head on her poll..I ended up being okay but was shocked!

Are you trotting up to the jump?
Sounds like your boy is using it as a large trot pole!

Years ago I started competing English during my Western off-seasons lol A little bit confusing, but my mare has been my English horse since I started jumping three years ago before
Then I used her for high school rodeo, 'cause she doesn't have the build to be a Reiner to chase cows all day.

That particular instance I was trotting because my trainer wanted me to go slower, but he will do this even at the canter. However, I did raise the height a little bit and he's putting in a better jump. He's still pretty green to jumping, and granted so am I but I don't think I'm too shabby. Both me and my boy
Are pretty average low-level jumpers

Bolding mine.

I admit it, your clarification only makes it more confusing. You basically contradicted what you said in your original post with your clarification.

I'm sorry, I fail at wording. I meant, I had never competed until *now*. (I would bold that word or something, but I'm on the iPod) But had always had an English saddle just to play around in. I only have three years of actual jumping lessons although I sort of just screwed around with it on the trail on my own. Two years ago I started competing to fill the void of free space I had when I wasn't competing in anything else.

.....Was that better? Lol Sorry about that guys, like I said I'm not the best communicator.
