Is Jump Training for me?


First time Jump Training participant, Hayley Care, shares her experience of the BE winter series sponsored by Baileys Horse Feeds.


In a few words how would you describe Jump Training?

A unique training competition over a course of show jumps at your chosen height. Feedback and advice is given from two BE Accredited Coaches during a course walk, warm up and after jumping the first round when you then jump a second round straight away. Both jumping rounds are marked out of ten for several categories such as effectiveness of rider, quality of pace and jump, which forms the competitive element.

What is the most beneficial thing about Jump Training?

Getting live, proactive feedback throughout the process at all stages. Jumping the second round immediately following feedback from the first provided the unique opportunity to put the advice straight into practice rather than waiting until you are next out competing. I also found it to be a great balance between training and competition; it is a relaxed atmosphere which enables you to feel that you can discuss feedback with the coaches yet the fact that it is a competition re-creates the pressure that you feel when at an event.

Do you need to have done an event with BE before to find it useful?

Not at all. This format would be useful for anyone wishing to improve their course jumping in a relaxed yet competitive environment.

Would you recommend Baileys Jump Training?

It's a great combination of training but under the pressure of competition that you don't get in lessons. It's also a more relaxed environment and the feedback and advice is useful but encouraging.

I found it useful being able to watch others complete their rounds and the difference between the first and second was in most cases very noticeable.
