Your horse is very young to be put under all this pressure of schooling and jumping. She's still in pre-school and she wants to find learning fun - you are boring her to death and probably putting a lot of strain on her joints in process. You will end up with one very sour horse
I see you are looking at giving her new things to do to get her to use her mind a bit and thats really great for her
I spent most of the time with my 4 year olds just hacking them out (trail riding) They get to see 'stuff', learn to deal with things & relax and its surprising how much sneeky schooling you can do at the same time wihtout them even noticing it.
