How do I stop my horse from lowering his head when jumping? any tips?

How do I stop my horse from lowering his head when jumping? any tips?
That’s generally just scopiness. He might also be stretching through his backand neck, bringing his legs under him to increase his impulsion before the jump. But follow what Trinity said, do not ever restrict the horse’s head, because they’re generally doing it for a good reason 😊😊
Thanks everybody! 😃
my trainer always says keep your hands up eye up and your horse will follow! hope this helps
I'll trade you 😂 My guy likes to raise his head before jumps
never restrict the natural head movement. the neck balances the horse. make sure your balance is in check cause you may be causing him to get off balance
