Show Jumping Courses For Young Horses


The trick is to keep your young horse listening to you by making courses easy but having lots of jumps in view so the horse has to listen to know which ones to jump.  There also shouldn't be too much room to gallop off after jumps.  

This course is easy to remember and has a double and lots of little turns.  


This course has more space to turn which means the horse has to learn not to rush off after jumps.


This is a little more complicated, it is important to keep a canter in a good rhythm and make sure to count your strides to keep the horse calm.   


Again, this course is a little harder.  Just make sure to keep your canter forward and bouncy and allow lots of room for young horses so they have more time to think about everything.
