Ask @cedricshowjumping : What are some exercises to make my horse braver to the fences? He is getting better, but still can throw a stop in there. Thanks!

Hello Amber,

The best thing you can do is use a good 350m/m rythm putting a pole on the ground on a line entry at 20.5m from a fence and make your horse getting 5 stides on a forward balanced pace.

More a horse jump on a good rythm, less he will think about stopping and with the ground pole 5 strides in front of your fence. You give him always a good distance and a good rythm, building up his confidence.

Try it and let me know :)
