    Default Need a place in Orlando area to free jump a horse

    I have a mare I'm trying to get ready for an MPT this fall. She's lovely under saddle and is jumping well with a rider but has never seen a free jumping chute. We're just not equipped for it at our barn (arena fences are way too low) and no one has much experience with free jumping.

    Can anyone recommend places in the area where I might be able to have someone else free jump her? I'd like to let her do it a few times this summer. By the time I buy and build the gates I'd need to do it at home, it's just way more cost effective for me to pay someone else to do it than to try to set it up at our barn.

    You could check with Szipi - posts here - he is in Ocala and probably has such a set up.

    Not Orlando, but fairly close. Pennock Point Sporthorses, in Reddick FL, just north of Ocala, has many people trailer in for use of their jump chute. Pennock Point is also the location for many registry inspections, so it also gives a chance to see the arena and get acclimated.
