In this episode, Traci Brooks works with Kaitlyn Van Konynenburg to answer a common question, “Finding A Distance With My Show Jumping Horse”. Traci illustrates a target box where you want to aim your horse’s front feet prior to the jump. This box can be placed closer or further from the jump based on the height of the jump. You don’t start thinking about the box until you and your horse are about five to six strides away.
