I have been having trouble getting my horse to jump. He is fine over trotting poles but as soon as he has to go through jump wings (even when there is no pole) he backs away and no amount of impulsion or leg will get him to go through them. As far as i know he has never jumped before, and definitely hasnt had a jumping accident. So is there a way to gradually get him used to the wings, as i do eventually want to jump him? I was thinking about putting a pole on the ground with the jump wings far apart and each time he walks over the pole i should slowly bringing the wings closer together, is this a stupid idea?
