Show jumping training techniques by Clear-Round

Show jumping training techniques can be used to improve your horse and your riding in so many different ways. Today’s training technique is to train your horse to travel smoothly through a related distance. There are four related distances in this exercise, some straight and some on a curve.

Ease your way into it.

The first line with the placing poles is the part of the exercise that really teaches your horse to stride evenly through the related distance. I would recommend you do this a few times before doing the track. So if you jump your horse twice a week, the first jump just do this line a few times. This will give your horse the opportunity to absorb the exercise, before doing the rest.
