    No comments from me, and no right or wrong answers. Curious about the range of different opinions that will be stated. No, this will not go in a novel, and yes, there are no right or wrong answers. Saw some hunter riders trying to adjust to show jumping schooling recently, and wonder how many different opinions on it we have here.

    I feel like if you're going to jump your horse, that it pays to school "hunter" style sessions and "jumper" lessons. For example, getting a horse in a steady rhythm and finding really great distances is something every horse should be able to do. In my jumper lessons we will focus on adjustability doing a 6 stride in 7 strides or 4 strides, we also will add in roll backs or combinations. Those are some differences in my experience.
