Jumping Bounces For Learning Releases

The most frequent reason that horses do not want to jump is the rider interferring with the mouth prior, during and after a fence.

Jumping Bounces gives the rider the opportunity to learn to leave the mouth/reins alone, and grab the mane for several release ranges to learn over fences.

This in turn, allows the horse to develop the safety * confidence that he will develop knowing that the rider will not interfere with his mouth during the jumping process.
