Ride forward to the jumps

Having a beautiful jump round isn't just about getting over the jumps. It all comes down to your 𝗙𝗟𝗔𝗧𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞. (Do I dare say the dreaded "D word" here?!?) In order to create the best jumping effort from your horse you need to be able to create a forward & regular canter. You also need to have a horse that has an 𝗔𝗗𝗝𝗨𝗦𝗧𝗔𝗕𝗟𝗘 canter stride.

Running on the forehand towards the jumps and then picking at the reins a couple strides out does not give your horse the best chances of jumping well. A lot of times that will even cause a lot of horses to stop at the base of the jump and run out!

to ride your horse in a forward & regular canter that is balanced & has engagement takes a lot of 𝗣𝗥𝗔𝗖𝗧𝗜𝗖𝗘! It's not always as much fun to spend time on your flatwork, but that is where the 𝗠𝗔𝗚𝗜𝗖 truly happens!
