He was jumping superb, and all of a sudden he refused to go. Took a pretty collected stance, and you could see all his muscles thight and strong.
He did not kick, not attempted to throw me, but would not jump more.
My trainer said that the ground was too heavy, like demanding a lot of effort on every stride and that the fences in that conditions were almost like if they were 20cm higher, in effort for the horses.
He then rode him, and after some attempts got him jumping again, but I decided not to compete.
There is clearly something I’m doing wrong. Ideas?
