The horse i ride was trained for dressage but he can jump, although he won't jump a combination (jumps a bounce though)😂 any ideas on how to improve?

Thanx :) @alexiacook
Hello,

I think you should first do pole work. Get him you used to bounces with ground poles and when he is relaxed and comfortable, you can put very small jumps.

Do very simple exercises so he will gain confidence. Be patient and I'm sure you will soon see a lot of improvement.

Good luck :)
