Your Horse Magazine Two drills to stop your horse from jumping
If your horse runs on a fence, it is easier for him to make a mistake and take little notice of where he places his heels. During the first practice you get your horse back into a good bust. Travelling as you get closer will give your horse more thought and also give you the opportunity to keep him upright when he tries to run away.
Put a gallop bar on both sides of the gate, about three meters away. When you have jumped out of your paces and have the feeling that your horse is working more quietly, go cantering. Use a fencing system at a level with which you are comfortable on the side of your building.
Put a gallop rod on both sides of the gate, six meters away. To each side of your gallop sticks, insert two more sticks eight meters away. Variegate the spacing of the sticks, so that you have to extend and reduce your horse's gallop step.

enhances straightforwardness by having to align the centres of the jumps visual with the distant subjects. trains skiing by stimulating you to use your eye throughout the entire workout. enhances turning ability by inviting you to turn gently and efficiently from one leap to the next?
will help you counterbalance your horse by helping you push it from your inner foot to your outer reins so that you can concentrate on your jumps instead of having to worry about overcoming the fence, because the jumps are low and straight.
By repeating it will help you to keep a constant pace without having to feel the pressures to "find" a gap to the fence (to assess the starting point) and will encourage your horse to attract your interest and make it leap in its best shape with the innovation of diagonal jumps and more... will prepare your horse for riding and jumping competitions in which you have to leap gently and evenly.
Place the grating in a line in the center of your area. In order to make these routes safe to drive on, the size of your stadium should be at least 100 x 150ft. Start with a crossbar, then take 18 ft to a perpendicular, then 21 ft from the perpendicular to an oxy.
Five and 20 inches. Apply flooring on either side of each skip, without any fill (walls, window box, etc.). Be sure that there is a lot of space around the grille to make slippery, twisting turns from one leap to the next.
Next, place three "view cones", each five to six steps (60 to 72 feet) away from the landing, as shown in diagram 1 on the right. Place each taper or can in line with the path you are going to travel, so that when you are approaching the middle of the dive at a 45-degree tilt, the taper or can be centred directly in your visual range.
Before you go to the course you see in the chart. Meanwhile, make sure you can make every turn without jumping into a leap or disturbing the river. Courses #1: The basic course Before you start this practice, you should thoroughly warming-up your horse at a good pace, on horseback, and at a gallop.
When you or he is a novice, practise jumping and galloping directly to a easy leap elsewhere in the ring. Begin "the in the and the outs" by taking up the Trob and move from lefthand to righthand in the crossbar towards the other two fencing in the rail.
Align the centre of the crack where the tracks intersect with the sight or can. Go through with the right shoulders near the perpendicular standards so that your horse has enough free space to concentrate on the crossbar before the start (photo 1). Tramp over the crossbar and hold the skittle between your horse's ear before, during and after the dive (photo 2).
Do not make the jump angles more pronounced during this practice. Gallop a few steps ahead after you land. When your horse gallops on the leash, great! When he touches down on the right line, switch to the lefthand side by briefly trotting him into the harness and lifting the right line..... or make a quick switch if he has more experience.
When your horse gets too fast, gently draw and loosen the outer reins to ask him to slower without leans. Otherwise, keep constant touch to check the outside of the curve and avoid your horse bumping his shoulders and loosing his equilibrium. Make your move far enough away from the ox to have enough free space to adjust your horse.
Looking forward to the oxter and align it with the land cones by putting it back between your horse's ear. Point to the middle of the dive (photo 4). Allows you to use the central reservation to your benefit by aligning it with the sight taper, as stated at the beginning of this section if you are using striated tracks.
Horse back to the ox and the crossbar, remembering your rhythms, your equilibrium and your uprightness. No matter whether your start is a little low, a little long or just right, focus on keeping on your course and making the trip run smoothly (photo 5). Drive to and around the next taper before starting your right turn (photo 6).
After you have done this routine a few time, your horse will begin to predict the curves and will probably end up on the right leash. When the perpendicular comes into sight, align its centre with the lander taper (photo 7). Dive (photo 8 ), and when you have landed, gallop ahead, right to the right of the skittle, and then gently return your horse to the stroll.
For you and your horse, you can improve the level of skill by reducing the distance from the jumps to the skittles? but not less than about 36ft. However, be sure to keep your horse on level ground with the fence centres by hopping at an approximately 45 degree turn and letting your horse make a few steps on the level run before asking for each turn.
Horse show ring competitions are open to equestrians, but it is a good competition for both horse and rider in all of them. Keep in mind that the aim is to ride the course, maintain a constant speed and, above all, communicate with your horse so that the curves and junctions run smoothly and seamlessly downwards.
Begin by galloping the oxygen from right to lefthand back to the grate. If you circle right around the crossbar, stay pretty near it to skip the verticality, then make a lefthand curve around the ox, again remaining pretty near, and define your line for the crossbar. Ask your horse, immediately after you have passed the Oxper, to make a gentle passage down to the stroll, and then drop the crossbar from the stroll.
Attempt to keep a real four-beat gear and do not preempt the leap by leanting forward or early leg closure.
