    Default Good books to read on training hunters to jump

    Anybody have any suggestions on good books for me to read on training my hunter to jump? I have read the following books: 101 jumping exercises, and some book on training your horse to jump (can't remember the author) and a book on gymnastics by James Wofford. Any others out there?

    Errrr...if it's Hunter, can't he already jump? If it does not jump, it's not really a Hunter.

    Otherwise, those are the two best books to reference...although Anna Jane White Mullin has a couple of excellent books and there is always George.

    If you are in a bind, a Pro is always a good choice to help you along.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

    I don't mean to be rude, but if you need to read a book to train your horse, you probably should let a trainer do it and you can help-with a trainer's guidance.
