    lovely horse and rider…have to agree with AllieLover147 that I would love to see more horse training videos with green horses verses well schooled.

    Do you teach your horse this in one day!? That’s fast…

  3. Horsecrazy953 says:

    I don’t care what my horse will look like but I just want a horse with a big heart to put me in

  4. sayg00dnightandg0 says:

    what if your horse is western and doesn’t know how to jump?

  5. tubbles1121 says:

    There is many things that cause refusing. fear of jump, maybe he/she is uncomfortable with teh height of teh jump, improper riding. not saying ur not riding right just lsitign what could be happening. id lunge your horse over teh jump and make sure your horse isnt over jumping and is comfortable and in teh correct frame i had a mare tha over jumped caused her some pain. also if you happen to be nervous about a jump your horse will most likely avoid it, and dont look at teh pole look over it

    the horse is in a loose ring snaffle and every trainer and vet ive ever met says dont put pressure on both reins u apply to one then the other. otherwise you get a nutcracker action. my horse was injured from someone doing that. im not trying bein rude but thats how i was taught aswell but i ride and jump in a pelham so i dont have to use a snaffle on my horse. ill give his lead changes are off tho

    You have a very beautiful horse!!! I ride a horse that looks like that in my lessons an hopefully I am going to be getting my own English horse and start jumping!!! I’m really excited!!!

    its annoying how u move from trot to canter and from canter to a trot all the time , that makes the horse untrained !

  9. marie wright says:

    hey i am a beggener rider and the first time i jumped was not on purpose now i jump all the time but me horse avoids the jump. i do not have a trainer so PLEASE help me thank you

    However…that being said you are a lovely pair. Good luck. And again, forgive my candor. It was such a nice video…but see sawing his bit in end…not cool. It diminishes your credibility as rider and possible trainer/professional.

  11. Nicole Black says:

    See sawing the bit reeks poor horsemanship. Also…this horse is obviously well schooled and isn’t actually learning how to jump. I’d be interested in watching a green/young horse who has never jumped. Furthermore, this lovely horse’s lead change on right rear is slow. Indicating he is sore/tight (that also explains buck at lead switch) This issue is most likely being caused from the horse being ridden in incorrect frame – i.e. rider bending him at wrong vertebra. Please forgive my candor.

    It’s not that easy. What if you can’t even get the horse over the ground pole?

  13. xJourneyToTheBluex says:

    I saw it too, at the very end.

    I think she was just trying to half-halt him in between and he got a little annoyed. It’s not *always* the riders fault. This horse was sort of in a sour mood. However, if her reins would have been shorter she could have been able to collect him more quickly.

    i didnt say she yanked, she sawed

  18. Sarah Foster says:

    she didnt yank.

  19. HannuGirl10 says:

    i didnt like the way she see-sawed on the horses mouth in the very end

    Your horse is cute!

    Protect the 2nd Amendment. GET TRAINED. Evil is the problem. Media rapes our privacy or harming are warriors in war with bad news – triggering PTSD. Media has “no safety”.. using the TAGETY of school children to hide – that they are acting like Hitler not protectors. DO YOUR PART – go out and SALUTE OUR FLAG in PUBLIC. In this country we can worship God by What Ever Name, Can we protect ourselves from weapons of words?

  22. CoreGoddess says:

    nice advice

  23. foxglory123 says:

    You are such a beautiful rider, and you have such a beautiful horse. This was very helpful for me! I have an arab mare who is just learning to jump. Thank you for this!

  24. Amanda M says:

    Some trainers believe that cross rails unfairly punish inexperienced horses for not being straight, and are more beneficial when it comes to teaching the rider to maintain straightness (on an experienced horse).

  25. Amanda M says:

    Could not agree more, well said!

  26. Truman Whitehead says:

    I think she is doing it very well. As a horse trainer myself I understand that there are as many different ways to train a horse as there are trainers, so in the future if you plan on bad mouthing someone you should probably remember that you have never tried their method and it may very well be better than yours. Try stepping out of your comfort zone and be positive for once, the results might surprise you.

    that is one…gorgeous… hunter…wow.

  28. bruskie4 says:

    Beautiful horse!

  29. kittena20 says:

    I think u should actually do it with a horse that has never jumped or is a dangerous refuser, cause this teaches nothing when the horse already knows what it’s doing.

  30. horseyhoegal123 says:

    your horse is so pretty!

  31. englishridinggirl says:

    for sure…lots of smart people here, not sure why she did not realize all of this..she rides very pretty
