Pro Tips : improve the control of the pace before the jumps

Let's follow Nicolas Duprez 's advices and exercises to improve the control of the pace before the jumps ! 

Advices : 

  • To slow down : come closer to your saddle (from a 2 points position to a 2,5 points position, verticalise your body, keep the legs contact.
  • To accelerate : stay in a 2 points position, advance your hands to your horse's mouth without loosing contact, ask for more impulsion with your legs.

2 points position : be balanced on your feet, with your body weight on the stirrups.

2,5 points position : be balanced on your feet, very close from your saddle, body weight on the stirrups and a little in the saddle. 


EXERCISE 1 :

For this exercise, we are going to put 2 pads 12 meters before and after a pole laid on the ground.

Come in canter, and slow down to trot between the pads. Pass the pole in trot.

EXERCISE 2 : 

This time, we stay in canter, but we slow down (decreasing stride) or accelerate (increasing stride) before the pole.

EXERCICE 3 : 

Put a jump instead of the pole. 

Do exercises 1 and 2, and jump the fence this time. For exercise 1, you need to slow down to trot between the pads before the fence. Your horse will be in canter after jumping : you have to slow down to trot again between the pads after the fence.

Finally, jump the fence with a regular cadence.
