Thank you everyone she has just came out of being lame and I had a jumping lesson last Saturday she was going fine over the jump but as soon as we landed she started catering and shaking her head , my instructor had a shot at jumping with her and she done the same . I don't know what it is xx❤️
Well since he usually likes it, he's done it before so I would say pain or a rider errors. Maybe he's feeling kinda down or he hurt one of his legs. Maybe you just missed supporting you horse before the jump and he was confused.
there are a few reasons why a horse would refuse a jump:
1. Being over faced: if a horse finds a jump too scary, or too big, it may refuse. Being overfaced can also cause them too be afraid of jumping in the future.
2. Pain: if a horse is in pain, they may be reluctant to make certain movements such as jumping. The horse may have pains such as a weak back or sore legs. They could also be arthritic, or just no longer be physically capable of jumping.
3. Rider error: anything from leaning too far forward/back, looking down, leaning, ducking, having your leg too far forward or back. Also not supporting the horse enough or setting them up for a successful jump.
4. Bad past experiences: this sort of goes along with being overfaced; if a horse was injured jumping, or had a bad experience they may be reluctant to go near jumps in the future.
When was tha last time you had a vet check up???Maybe you should check for soundness. Even though it may love jumping there could be a injury. I would get a vet to check out your horse. Hope you solve this!!
