In this video you will see several examples of typical mistakes while riding jumping and their solutions. Instead of approaching the obstacles in a steady rhythm, the first presented gelding runs before the jump. A gallop pole before the jump helps to keep him relaxed. As an exercise jump, an oxer is chosen so that the jumping impulsion remains necessary. Numerous transitions, volts and circles before the jump bring peace and clarity into the work – the horse should accept the aids of the rider shortly before the jump. The jump is first approached in trot for better control, the level of demand is progressively increased until the rider can approach the jumps quietly.

For the experienced mare Candy, the straightness should be improved. It tends to squeeze out the under-neck before the jump and should learn to be better assimilated with weight aids. The video shows how to fix the problem systematically. With purposeful exercises, the mare gradually becomes calmer, so that horse and rider form a unit again.

The third example horse, a seven-year-old mare, is about activating the hind leg more and improving permeability. The components of the training scale are directly related. If you want to improve one aspect, you can do so only with the help of others. For example, with tight turns, the mare is motivated to more load absorption. The spectator can observe how the jumping technique with the improved carrying capacity improves significantly during the riding.

You will learn in this video:

  • Example of typical mistakes and how to correct them while riding show jumping
  • How to train in jumping according to the training scale
  • How to improve the calmness and fluidity of a horse who is getting hectic while jumping
