    Shes sure a trooper.....horse did not like that jump at all for some reason.

    Why do they go over some and not others?

    I feel for her. I have been in that postion before. Those my horse usually always got me off the first time. I have a quarter horse arabian cross that I used to do hunters with and I knew it was never his favorite dicipline, so he would refuse jumps from time to time.

    Some horses like to jump and others don't. They also pick up on the rider's confidence.

    Most horses and ponies start refusing after a while when they are not always ridden into the jump. It helps to get an older, quicker, stronger child on the horses/ponies frequently, so they don't get to doing things like this.

    At most jumper barns, there is a swaggery little girl about as big as a twig who can make a milk cow jump five foot, rarely falls off, and thinks bucking, shying and rearing is 'funny'. If a barn doesn't have one, they usually are in need of one.
