Tip/Quote of the Day # 2768
Gymnastic jumping is meant to teach the horse to better solve problems over fences. They teach the horse to think about their timing, develop their eye and accurate judgement, and to teach them to be clever with their footwork. To then go out and squelch the horse's initiative at fences by picking each spot for them in training is like throwing all that gymnastic work right out the window.
