A Bucking Bronco, a New Yard and Old Issues - Catch Up with Coco on our newest blogpost...

When it comes to jumping, we here at No Bucking Way have had our fair share of challenges; between refusals, over-jumping a fence, to problems approaching a fence. With young horses, not only are you trying to teach them to jump properly but you are also trying to give them the best start in their jumping career while not giving them any bad habits along the way. Luckily we've had our coach Sue Byrne on hand to help us with Coco and Dante so we invited her to share her knowledge and answer some of our jumping questions.
Have you ever found yourself short on poles? Well for this exercise, all you need is six poles and you can get straight to work.
