However competent or experienced you are, you will always want to improve - to jump better. From being a complete beginner to competing at the highest level, there is always more to be done, and gridwork is the key, the building blocks of a winning partnership. Jumping trainer Carol Mailer, believes that these and many more problems can be overcome with the help of the grid:

  • My horse is nappy and bad tempered; is there any chance of him ever competing?
  • How can I help my horse jump straight?
  • My new horse was perfect when I bought him. Now he's stopping, running out or charging off with me. Why is he doing it?
  • I'm an inexperienced rider with a new horse. How can I form a good partnership when we start jumping?
  • Why does my horse keep putting extra strides in?
  • Is there a way to calm my horse down and make him listen to me?
  • I'm having a job stopping my horse cutting corners. Any ideas?

Packed with exercises for finessing your technique and insightful solutions to classic jumping difficulties, Better Jumping is a wonderfully practical and inspiring book that will set you on the path to success, whatever your level.
