Tip/Quote of the Day # 1683
If you are working with a very bold jumping youngster, and have plans to take him up the levels, it is a good idea to have a plan to teach him to be economical when jumping into water and off of drops. This means doing something a little different… and coming back to the trot just in front of your little drops, and bringing him right back to the trot when you land. Doing this in training will produce a horse that will be less extravagant about his jumping efforts off of drops and into water. Which will make it much easier to negotiate the complex combinations that will show up as you move up the levels.
