    I have one of these too. The best result I've had is with adding a lot of lateral work to our warm ups. I spend a lot of time leg yielding from the quarter line to a track just inside the true...

    First off- don't beat yourself up for being nervous about fence height. It's a common & reasonable fear. We don't all bounce like we did at 12! Remember that you did jump higher & did it well. ...

    Starting with an engaged relaxed walk is the key for us. I begin with longish reins and think Marilyn Monroe as we walk, using my hip swing, seat & leg together to get a good motion going through...

    I've been using NexHA instead of Legend since it came out and have been very happy. It is a true generic (using the term the way they do for human medication not marketing of horse supplements).

    It doesn't sound like you have a hot seat as your speed "is not unintentional". Rotational falls can happen well below 1.10M and an overly gappy distance, flat jump & maxing out your horse's stride...
