The youngster I'm riding didn't pick up his legs over a jump and had a pretty bad knock. He is now refusing to even walk over a pole, he just plants his feet. Ideas?

He could be sore
Maybe when you are relaxed and he is relaxed you can just lead him near the pole let him sniff it, and then let him walk over it. Do this while he's not racked up.
Maybe u could lead him over poles on the ground and pet and praise him a lot after he goes over it. Make sure he knows it's ok and it won't hurt him.
