Hi guys! I hope you can help me.

I started to train my competition riding horse and I want to know how many days per week you train your jumper?

Depends on the horse and situation really. A healthy horse I would work 5-6 days/week. I wouldn't jump all of those days and I would be sure to mix it up to keep their interest (trail ride, ground work, obstacle course).

I have a 7 year old TB who I ride 6 days a week. We jump for no more than 4 of those days...normally 3.

You should never jump a horse more than 2x a week if you want a horse that will last. Always give them at least one day off a week, never work them hard every day. Don't always practice at your maximum height. work on pole work in between.

I agree, they do not want jumping or pole with more than twice a week, if there are problems then perhaps a couple more times of poles work but these sessions need to be short amd only popping a few fences, never course after course.

Mix it with flat work and trail riding.
