My mare is blind in one eye - twists to the blind side over jumps
We don’t compete or have any intention to compete, we jump small jumps just for fun. Both me and her enjoy jumping - small jumps :)
I am not even sure if this needs to be corrected, we get on just fine. No matter how straight I come at the jump, my mare will twist to her blind side as soon as she lifts her front feet. I have had my instructor look at what I’m doing and she doesn’t see anything wrong.
My questions are: should I even try to correct this if we don’t compete and how do I correct it?
I have looked online and traditionally a horse twisting to one side mid-air is corrected by placing an obstacle (like a barrel) on that side after the jump. I am a bit hesitant to do that since she might not be able to see it in time. Any other ideas? I’m also not sure if I should maybe keep more contact over the jump? But that might unbalance her and I wouldn’t like to do that either.
