So I have a friend who has been learning how to do basic english riding and jumping from me. When we started out I could get her to do flat work and everything. Now when I ask her to do dressage instead of flat work she simply refuses and runs away. (litteraly runs away on the horse!!!) what should I do? I've explained that its basically the same thing and now I can't even get her to do flat work all she wants to do is jump. I have said that jumping is only dressage with jump in the way, and to jump a course you need to be able to do dressage. Does anyone have any teqniques? If so share? She could be a good rider if she tried. She will only pay attention to me when im asking her to jump and do courses.
