AT MARCUS EHNING'S HOME - training on small jumps

Between one competition and another, it is not important to jump over big fences. 

However, it is very useful to exercise and put together a small course of small jumps to improve understanding and communication with the horse, our position and control.

In an indoor arena we can easily arrange a course consisting of a vertical, two oxers and a combination. Let's make sure that the oxers and the double can be jumped in both directions.

As we are able to repeat the jumps a few times knowing the distances and difficulties, we can improve what is wrong.

Among the aspects to pay more attention to is the rhythm to keep, especially when turning out of a corner and before the jump. In fact, we often see riders who tend to wait until they 'see' the distance. Nothing could be more wrong because we teach the horse not to go forward.

A horse willingly going towards the fence is what is desired, at every level of competition.

Always remember, even during training, to ride safely and protect the legs of our horse with Veredus tendons and fetlock boots.

After jumping let’s relax a few minutes in a good trot for a correct cool-down. Before putting the horse back in the box, let's clean it well by removing the traces of sweat from the coat and the sand from the hooves. Then treat the hooves with the ointment (Golden Hoof or Winter Hoof) well on the wall, on the coronet and under the sole.
