    I love oxers and combos. I love doing gymnastics too! But really, my favorite jumps are the ones where you get that perfect striding and you feel like you are ontop of the world. After you land you put the reins in one hand and give your horse a nice pat on the neck while you are in half seat, cantering around the arena. Those are my favorite. ;]

    I live for XC!! I only do dressage and sj cos they are compulsory aspects of eventing LOL
    I love jumping grids too when you have that really nice rhythm going.
    My boy has a massive jump in him, but its taken awhile to find. Being young we of course started at the ground up, but he actually needs to start at 1.10m cos of his height. Day I worked that out - well ... bascule much?!!!! Never felt a horse THAT powerful lift its back and CARRY me up over a fence with that much room to clear. I would give up guys to have that feeling again (if you get what I mean lol :P )

    I absolutely LOVE jumping...the thrill it gives you....

    My favorite jumps are oxers and bounces, oxers give you more airtime! LOL.

    My favorite Jump is a "Hog's Back" Which is not a traditional Hunter fence and never seen in competition but I love making them to school over :)


    I also love the "Pig's Pen" formation

    This is an old thread, but alas.
    I enjoy jumping, but I think in some cases it is over done. It should only be done once a week at the maximum IMO, for many even less. Overjumping can wear on their minds and joints. The right amount of jumping should give them a good hind work out and sharpen their minds. I find it to be a great cure for horses that have been doing only dressage or EP for the past few months and are getting work sour. However, I do find poles and cavaletti more functional for my dressage work than a jump, as well as having a lower impact on their joints.

    I've only jumped a few times, and I can't stay I'm in love with it. I don't "hate" it, but I prefer to keep all four feet on the ground at the same time. I checked "never tried it before" though since I really haven't done it enough to form a strong opinion. Ha ha, I'll probably come back tomorrow after a day of jumping practice and be in love with it! But, for know, it's an ok-ish thing.
