    Help! My trainer will not let me jump and I have been riding for years. The first year I was learning how to tack up, groom and walk around. The 2nd year I was walking all by myself and even learned to also trot by myself. The 3rd year I worked on improving my trot and canter and then centered...

    Hay yall, bad news :( I was riding my 13 y/o gelding CJ and right as we got to the crossrails he darted and I wasn't ready. When I got back on, i got him trotting towards the jump, and I relieved pressure too early and he slowed to a walk and tried to step over it. However, these jumps are...

    Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone wanted to share any alternatives they use instead of buying arena cones or jumping poles/standards. I don't like spending a lot of money when I can recycle something that isn't being used. For example, I use old tires and PVC pipes for jumps. I'm still...

    I need some advice on getting my Thoroughbred to calm down and stay on the bit while doing a course. Anytime we start running through a jumping course he gets so excited, throws his head up, and rushes the fence. His flat work is beautiful, its just while we are jumping that it gets messy. As...

    Hello, I have been jumping for almost two years with my pony and we are jumping limit 2"3. It seems like all of the sudden lately she knocks the jump over on purpose. Like it doesn't matter at all. I have tried several things, but she just won't clear a jump. Any ideas? Thanks! :)

    Today is my last lesson before our show. =) This is the first time jumping higher then 2 foot! =D I don't know why, but I think I found it easier to jump the higher jumps then the smaller ones. They weren't much higher, but they were higher. Here is a screen shot I have. How high do you think...
