- puphorse liked post by angelswave88 On thread : Terrified of verticals!I actually saw a YouTube video today of an "asterisk" jump and thought it might be a good idea! And thank you, I appreciate it :)Liked On: 08-06-2015, 11:11 PM
Posted On: 07-28-2015, 12:30 AMpuphorse liked post by Yogiwick On thread : Terrified of verticals!Good advice. My thought is to put up a cross rail and at the same height as the "x" put a vertical immediately behind it (as in part of the same jump). Sort of like an asterisk. At that point...Liked On: 08-06-2015, 11:10 PM
Posted On: 07-26-2015, 12:35 PMpuphorse liked post by SirComet On thread : Terrified of verticals!Combining what xJumperx said, I have two suggestions. #1, don't even look at the jump. Always look above and beyond it. #2, count out loud in line with your strides. When you start to get close,...Liked On: 08-06-2015, 11:09 PM

See if you can get a hold of some pole-lifts, or maybe some shallow buckets, that will raise the pole only a few inches off the...Liked On: 08-06-2015, 11:08 PM

And then I usually just consciously think...Liked On: 08-06-2015, 10:51 PM

Try to relax and “flow” with the horse’s movements. It is easiest to learn to balance and move with...Liked On: 08-06-2015, 10:50 PM
