Thanks for answer.. Really I try lots of way about it.. Sometimes I can jump but simetimes he doesn't want to jump.It is really changeable 😬 I will try your system. @carolinestroud
Thanks for answer to my question, I understand you BUT really when he see the puddles,he doesn't want to come.. I tried but I couldn't lead him.. 😕 All the time he is afraid of water 😬 @victoria.equine
If it rains where you live, then when it rains go to the barn and just lead him through puddles! Then maybe ride him through some random puddles after your lesson!! Hope it helps :)
My friends horse was really scared of water for a long time. We started with him walking over a blue towel/tarp and then putting a jump over it. A few times we took him to a creek and let him play in that.
