You’ve jumped the cross pole, upright and parallel a few times in the collecting ring and your horse is going forward in a lovely rhythm, ears pricked, responding well. You are ready. The steward calls and you enter the arena, running through the course in your mind, blanking out all that is going on around you. The bell rings; you circle, recreating that lovely rhythm you had in the collecting ring, and begin… The show-jumping phase is often an Eventer’s nemesis; viewed and anticipated with dread. Riders who are confident about their own and their horse’s ability to fly around cross country or perform well in the dressage phase are often disappointed with their performance in the show jumping ring where penalty points can stack up as the poles roll. Here we give you some advice about how to approach this key phase, with the help of British Senior Eventing Team Show Jumping Coach, Peter Murphy and some practical hints, tips and exercises to improve your way of going from double British Olympic Show Jumper, Geoff Billington. As well warm-up tips, a variety of exercises and ringcraft advice, we also list your nearest BE Accredited Coach who can help you get your season off to a flying start. Why not gain more ringcraft experience in eventing off season at BE’s own show-jumping and indoor-eventing series, JAS Eventing? Or have a go at Jump Training, where Accredited Coaches watch your first round, then offer vital feedback to help you improve before jumping your second round? They are both great fun. For more details, check out the BE website. Shows run all over Britain from January through to April. So good luck and enjoy yourself this season!

British Senior Eventing Team Show Jumping Coach Peter Murphy offers these tips for Eventers, from flatwork through to choosing your level of competition  Flatwork

Make sure you are not trying to replicate your dressage flatwork in your show-jumping flatwork as you warm up. The pace you are going at needs to be more powerful; not necessarily faster but more active and forward.

 Withers

 Using your hand and leg

It is very important that the rider doesn’t purely use the hand and leg as the ‘stop and go’ button. It’s 4 www.britisheventing.com 0845 262 3344

Most important here is that your stirrups are the right length; don’t have them as long as in the dressage phase or as short as cross country. Ideally, you don’t want to be sitting too far over the horse’s wither or too deep in the saddle. Ultimately, you need to be comfortable in adjusting your balance in the saddle over a fence.

key that you use your leg to push though corners and lines on the course. Also ensure you use your hand and leg to regulate the pace and to keep the horse supple and bending.  Using pace

Adjusting your horse’s pace accordingly for the time allowed on the course is crucial. When you walk the course you must walk exactly where you are going to ride; knowing exactly where you will need to adjust the power to keep within the time is essential. Don’t allow the pace to get too long and flat as this will reduce your accuracy in your lines to the fences.

 Ringcraft

This is where the above pointers all come together; you need to make sure you are in a good powerful pace for this phase, making sure you are maintaining bend and control with your hand and leg. Ride the course as you walked it, making sure you come to your fences straight and maintain accuracy.  Moving up a level

A common mistake here is thinking that once you have completed successfully at your current level you are automatically ready to go up a level. This is not necessarily the case. Talk to your coach and make sure you discuss

whether you and the horse are ready to move up a level or whether you need some more training to go forwards in the future.  Getting the right trainer

Ultimately this is your decision; different people respond to different teaching styles. Some individuals need constant pressure where others need a quieter approach. I personally think that you know that you have the right trainer when they are making sense to you, when they aren’t telling you too much in one go, or rushing you. Basically, they need to be thorough with you in each phase.

Geoff’s top three tips Obedience is crucial in the show-jumping ring. Essentially your horse must go where you want him to go and do what you want him to do, when you want him to do it. Your horse must learn to wait, between hand and leg between fences. If possible, use your upperbody weight instead of your hand to shorten and lengthen your horse’s stride and speed. You can practice this by getting your horse to lengthen and shorten in the school. Firstly, five

strides lengthen, five strides shorten. Then change the pattern, finally getting down to three strides lengthen and three strides shorten. Athletic jumping – using cavaletti or poles Jumping small fences in a grid, such as a cavaletti, works wonders for both your balance and your horse’s co-ordination and will improve your feel for rhythm. While the jumps are small, you can concentrate on your own position, allowing your horse to

have a bit of fun whilst moving forwards through the grid. Remember, it is up to you to get the horse to the fence – it is then his responsibility to jump it! You can trot or canter through the grid – it is up to you, but the important thing is to always aim for the centre of the fence, to give your horse the best possible chance of making a clean jump and steer him to the middle of the fences all the way through. Try and keep a normal, regular canter stride along the line of cavaletti, not altering or changing the rhythm. You can also vary the distance between the cavaletti, so you can alter your horse’s stride. You can go from two strides to one or two to three or vary them along the length of the grid, thus increasing the challenge for the pair of you. Once you have mastered going straight down the line and looked at different distances in-between, try a few exercises like turning as you land over the last one. Approach the line of cavaletti on both the left and right rein and then turn the opposite way when you have exited that line. This will increase your horse’s suppleness and reaction time. It will also keep him listening to you as he doesn’t know which way you want him to turn next. This is also a great exercise to encourage your horse to land on the correct leg.  www.britisheventing.com 7

Single fences Establish a good canter rhythm

START

Training diagram

By jumping along a grid, you will have improved your feel for a good canter rhythm. Try bringing in a variety of single fences, varying your approach and line. Once you have mastered that, maybe try riding a figure of eight, so you have your cross pole in the middle of the eight, and draw an imaginary figure of eight in front and away from it. This way you will keep approaching the cross pole on a different rein, thus increasing your reaction times and strengthening you and your horse’s ability to jump off any rein. This exercise is great for excitable horses as it stops them from running away from you and 8 www.britisheventing.com 0845 262 3344

rushing their fences, as they have to turn so often. You can use your hands to gently balance your horse on those turns, but try and use your leg to keep him going forward. Try and influence which leg your horse will land on as you jump the cross pole by using your body weight. Come in a straight line over the fence, then ask him to bend and turn as he is going over the poles. If you can influence him at this stage, then your show-jumping rounds will become a lot smoother when you get to the ring. You can build up this figure of eight exercise to incorporate more jumps. See diagram above. If you feel confident, you can

include some flying changes which will improve and smooth out your show-jumping round once you are in the ring. This exercise is a great one to practice your changes. Jumping exercise on a circle Once you have popped a few jumps using the figure of eight exercise on different reins, move onto jumping your single fence on a circle. Just keep popping the fence, keeping your horse in the same, rhythmical ‘cog’ all the way around, not running away. While doing these simple exercises, think of your own jumping position and try and balance yourself in the approach,

Use serpentines to practice your balance and approach to fences where you need to change leg

when jumping and when moving away from the fence. Flying change If you and your trainer are happy to move on to flying changes, you can practice at home. To ask your horse to change, keep your body in the centre of the saddle and use your outside leg behind the girth when you want to change. Have a light rein contact and look the way you want to go. You can then add in more fences and start building up a bit of a course, making sure you do it on both reins. Serpentine exercise Try now to string a few fences together which are on a curving line or serpentine. Pace out your distances first – remember four

of your strides equals one of your horse’s. Plus you need to allow for two of your strides for a landing and take-off stride either side of the fence. Once you have built your serpentine course with three or four fences, walk the line you intend to take. When mounted, stick to the line you have picked and, importantly, jump in the centre of each fence. Hold your horse between hand and leg throughout the serpentine, pushing him positively forward to the next element, but not rushing or throwing him off his stride.

When doing exercises like this, it is easy for the horse to resist and not go where – or do what – you ask him when the exercise gets a little more difficult. When training at home, it is vital that you tell him what do, rather than asking him, so that he respects his rider: there is a difference! You can also incorporate your flying changes, or try and influence a change of leg as you jump each element, if you find that simpler. Flying changes are something you can work on when practicing on the flat, changing legs over a ground pole. 

If your horse needs a bit of support coming into a fence, try using ‘v’ poles to guide him into the centre, ground poles between the fences will help keep you both straight Aim for the centre of the cross pole

BE classes

Grading of horses To ensure fair competition, horses are graded according to the number of British Eventing points won (if any) and are eligible for different classes depending on these points. Points are not awarded at BE80, BE90 or BE100 level. No points 1 – 20 points 21 – 60 points 61+ points

Grade 4 Grade 3 Grade 2 Grade 1

ALL PHOTOS: ADAM FANTHORPE

Your first event is likely to be a BE80(T) or BE90 competition. If you are riding an experienced horse with BE points you will still be able to compete in a BE90 Open class, but will have to run non-competitively (HC) in BE80(T) classes. BE80(T) classes are an educational step for young and inexperienced riders and horses, and offer a stepping-stone to BE90, BE100 and beyond.

Phases

BE80(T)

Show jumping • Inviting, flowing courses with plenty of room, with a double combination.

• 7-12 numbered obstacles • Two obstacles at a maximum height of 0.85m, the rest at 0.80m • 325mpm

• 8-12 numbered obstacles • Two obstacles at a maximum height of 0.95m, the rest at 0.90m • 325mpm

Also put guide poles on the ground, which will encourage your horse to move straight inbetween the combination. As you approach the first part 12 www.britisheventing.com 0845 262 3344

Upright to a parallel A favourite of Course Designers and Builders, this combination tests a rider’s ability to sit and wait for the first element and then squeeze or gather your horse up for the second element of the parallel and keep the poles up! When approaching this line, keep level all the way in and then when you land, keep your horse in front of your leg and think to yourself ‘even-eveneven’ as you count the strides, almost getting your horse to bounce like a rubber ball between hand and leg.

Once you are comfortable jumping single and multiple fences in a figure of eight, on a circle and on a serpentine, changing the rein and simple changes, then you can move on to creating elements of what you will find on a BE course. This way you will train for every eventuality that could arise at a competition

CAMILLA WALTER/WWW.TPPICS.COM

Elements of a BE course

Clockwise: jumping a parallel; upright and planks combined; planks; jumping through a double

of the double, look up and sit up, balancing your horse. Overcome the urge to throw him at the fence which can sometimes happen if a rider is anxious about making it to the second part of the combination. Squeeze your horse in the last few strides to the fence to keep him moving forward. Once you have taken off, focus on the second part of the double and sit up as soon as you land to set him up for the second part. Keep squeezing, but sit still and quiet in the centre of your saddle and wait for the second part to come.

Planks Often the fence to fall, planks can cause nervous or unprepared riders unnecessary penalties! When walking the course, look at the ground to the approach to the fence – does it slope down and away or up to the planks? How close are the other fences to it, are you approaching on the left or right rein? Once you have considered these questions, you are instantly more prepared, as the most important thing to think about when approaching planks, which are often placed on shallow cups, are balance and impulsion.

Establishing a good canter rhythm

ALL PHOTOS: ADAM FANTHORPE

…warming up Warm up in trot and canter. The majority of your jump work will be done in canter, so you need to think about how you can improve your horse’s obedience and technique in his canter. To jump a course of fences, your horse needs to be supple and so warming up is important. Try riding him alternatively in the canter with firstly an inside, then an outside bend. Incorporate leg yielding, so he responds to your leg commands the instant you put them on and ask him to move away. Use canter circles, moving him forward then bringing him back, keeping him listening. Stop and start him on those canter circles and try spiralling in and out in the canter, moving him in and out of the circle with your leg. Once he feels warmed up in the canter, ask your coach to help you with counter counter which is a great suppling exercise in preparation for show jumping. It helps you as the rider to get control of both the inside and the outside of your horse’s body. Also incorporate some halts. Get him to come back to you, using your upper body weight to halt him, not your hands and reins. Ensure he stops square beneath you each time you halt and is ready to move off at your slightest command. Once he is listening, can hold

his rhythm and is taking you forward, then you can start to incorporate some fences. …vertical fences Sit tall when approaching a vertical and squeeze – do not push. If approaching a double of verticals, keep body upright going into the fence, then squeeze to get the second part, holding your horse between hand and leg. If you push you will only flatten and your horse will knock off the top rail. If you find yourself going in too fast, just sit back – don’t be tempted to throw your horse at the fence.

…oxer or parallel Approach an oxer in the same way as a vertical. It is important to ride forward when landing after an oxer and to drive your horse forward into your hand, keeping your rhythm. Keep your focus on the next fence. …moving up the heights All you can do as the rider is present your horse to the fence level, to the centre of the jump, balanced between hand and leg and in control. After achieving this you can then progress from 80cm to 1m to 1.20m and higher as long as you keep this principle the same. If presented correctly,

vertical/upright

you will find that the height makes no difference to the horse. The higher you jump, the more the horse will learn to balance himself better, meaning that you as a rider will have less to do. Another tip is to occasionally practice a higher level at home than what you will be expected to jump at your event. If you have entered a BE90, then practice jumping, mastering and feeling comfortable jumping a few 1m courses at home, that way when you get to your competition and walk your show-jumping course, you will feel confident in both you and your horse’s ability.

The show-jumping phase at an event

ADAM FANTHORPE

Walking the course Before you head out on course, check your bearings and the site layout so you know where dressage, show jumping and cross country are located. Many events use horse walks to prevent horses getting mixed up with spectators. The times between phases may well be quite tight (they will be at least 30 minutes), so you will need to know how to get from one to the other, especially if the dressage is some way from the horse box park – the organisation of your tack, equipment and helper is essential! Course walking can also take longer than you think. If you 16 www.britisheventing.com 0845 262 3344

Your show-jumping round When you get to the warm-up arena, find the Collecting Ring steward to give your number and see how many there are to go before you and who you follow. Allow enough time to warm up but do not over-jump the practice fences or hog them. It is often helpful to watch a couple of rounds before entering the arena to remind yourself of the course. Remember not to start before the bell, but approach the start as soon as it is rung as you only have 45 seconds to begin your round. Remember to breathe, think positive and enjoy yourself! If it doesn’t go to plan, don’t worry – there is always next time! Besides that, you have the fun of the cross country next. Should you be unlucky enough to be eliminated for three

refusals, two falls or incurring more than 24 penalties, you will not be allowed to go cross country. However, if you have been eliminated for any other reason such as missing a fence, you may go straight to the secretary’s office, who will contact the BE steward; they may grant permission for you to continue the competition non-competitively (HC). Time may well be short and you should make sure that while you are away your team is getting your horse ready for the cross country. If you have a fall in the show jumping you will not be allowed to start the cross country until passed fit by the doctor, so again contact the secretary who will call the doctor. Please note that if you are competing in Junior or Pony classes and are eliminated in the show jumping, for safety reasons, you will not be allowed to go cross country. 

live locally, or have travelled to the event the day before, walk both the cross-country and show-jumping courses the day before and then again on the day. When walking the showjumping course, walk the line between the fences carefully and walk the line you plan to ride. As you go, note the number of each fence so that you do not miss one out! Make sure you can visualise the route you are going to take, remembering the colour or type of fences and also if you have to take a left or a right turn after them.

BREATHE, THINK POSITIVE AND ENJOY YOURSELF… BESIDES, YOU HAVE THE FUN OF THE CROSS COUNTRYNEXT
