Hi...my gelding has one issue on the trail that drives me crazy! He always wants to jump small water crossings versus walk calmly thru them
I am stumped as to how to correctly work with him on this issue to resolve it. He never refuses, he will go where I ask but I have tried a few different things to no avail. I end up hanging on his face and totally off balance (I'm not a jumper lol) after he sails thru the air and I would love to have him just walk calmly across. He does it perfectly in larger bodies of water but it is the smaller ones where it would only be a couple steps thru that he always elects to jump :( Any tips on how to correct this GREATLY appreciated!
