Regular jumping training as well as riding outside the arena, are an important part of any horse’s education. The surefootedness, calmness, and self-confidence of young horses is increased and even for dressage horses, the jump training is great for balance and strength.

This video series follows the training of the young gelding Just Paul with Olympic Champion Ingrid Klimke, filmed over a two-year period. After his first competition start in the last video, we are now watching his first time jumping. The first small jumps go smoothly, helped by following a quiet, experienced horse. Guide poles at an angle at the side of the jumps make it easier for the young horse to do the right thing from the start and avoid any potential run-outs.

One month later Just Paul heads to his first cross country outing. Every horse should learn to go through water, for even dressage horses may need to go through a puddle one day. Jumping training is a valuable way to vary the daily training of the horse in order to keep them openminded and motivated.

You will learn in this video:

  • Where and how Ingrid does some of the fitness work with her horses
  • How helpful it can be having a lead horse for the first jumping training of a young horse – especially on the cross
  • Where Just Paul spends his summer holiday!
