Ask Cedric Triolet : How do you adjust your horse's stride when jumping and how do you know when to adjust and find the perfect distance? I tend to ride to the base of the jump.

Hi Jessica,

You should work a lot with poles on the ground and counting your strides between them, that will adjust your rythm and stride. Another thing which will help is instead of looking at the pole, look at 1 meter before the pole, that will help you to get a not too deep, the more you fix your eye on a pole or a jump, the deeper you get to it.
