What are techniques to bring up a young horse for show jumping?

hi kate! for young horses being taught for show jumping i would definitely start with pole work like walk/trot over poles then i’d start them over cross rails then as they excel with that i would start doing gymnastic grids and jumping as big as 2’ , maybe? that’s my opinion but that’s just what i had to do, 2ft is not exactly big but if you’re starting a young horse i probably wouldn’t go higher than that depending where they’re at obviously and that’s your decision to go higher or not! but then as your horse succeeds more and more set up jump courses and see where that goes! hope that helped! :)
