What excercises do you reccomend for young horses that have not been jumping yet? I use to do a lot of lunging.

Lots of poles and little cross rail jumps!
Thank you guys, now i know i work with my horse in a good way, i like pole work and cavaletti, and i use equisense ;) we're getting better and better
Hi, I found it hard to train my horse during this quarantine but there are loss of apps that have different lessons to help with all types of horses (Equisense and Ridely would be my favorite)
Pole work, transitions, turning, bending, circling, serpentines, raised poles and cavaletti. All at a walk, trot, and when your horse knows them and feels balanced then at a canter.
I’ve found pole work really helpful. Trot poles/ raised trot poles on the lunge, as well as trot/ canter poles under saddle. They’re good prep work for teaching your horse how to find their footing and balance before they move up to jumps.
