Kids. What would you do without them? They give so much hope to the world, especially the really young ones. No matter how hard life is for some of them, kids remain the eternal optimists. No wonder the kids get on so well with the animals. For all the worst reasons that you can think of, animals instinctively cringe at the sight and smell of an adult male or female.
But when it comes to a small child, it is an entirely different matter. A bond of trust is easy to establish. This, however, does not mean that the experienced horse trainer’s work is made any easier.
But even so, it is a good idea to train them up young. Young kids, for as long as they are allowed to do so, for as long as they are encouraged to do so, and they should be, will always be seeking out things or obstacles over which to jump.
And the young colt, in training or not, will be looking forward to making those jumps too. It likes to be challenged. It is playful in the act. It is not a matter to be taken too seriously and it is a healthy part of the young kids’ both horse and child development.
The horse trainer will be utilizing kids horse jumps, not necessarily just to enhance both creature and rider’s sporting prowess, but more to help with brain to body coordination and development. It is a healthy process of events indeed. It is just a matter of now getting the balance right. And by now, seasoned trainers are making use of wooden jumps and cups as opposed to plastic because it has been deemed a lot safer by qualified persons to do so.
