    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.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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).

    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.

    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.
