What are people's opinions on the perfect stride? How do you define preparing the perfect stride?

Hello Amber,
To me there isn't a "perfect stride". Indeed, some horses feel better when close to the fence while other rather be far from it.
What is very important though is the canter.
I found a really good article about it online : http://practicalhorsemanmag.com/training/never-miss-another-jumping-distance-11617
Good luck :)
