hi! I have a mare that is quite successful in the heights we are doing right now. I have confidence that she and I are prepared to go up the grades, she has also quit a lot of trust in me which is beneficial. We do up to 90cm at home and 80cm at shows. What exercises can I do to make the higher jumps easier for us?
