If you want to do it right and classically, de Nemethy's methods are the way to go. Try to get your hands on this book - it helps you correctly teach the horse to jump and sets him up for success.
De Nemethy emphasizes the basics and has a systematic approach to training the horse to jump reliably and confidently. The book is not complex and not filled with lots of esoteric stuff. It is clear, practical and sound. Do it right so you won't have to do it over ...

Format: Hardcover
Bertalan de Nemethy was coach of the US Equestrian Show Jumping Team for 25 years. His approaches work. This book is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to know how to start a horse in jumping training and get good results. But it is far more than that. In less than 170 pages de Nemethy explains how to sit a horse correctly - and why - how to work the horse in the various gaits, how to start a young horse so that he will be supple and balanced, how to do ground work, and how to start and work successfully with a young or a more experienced horse over jumps. Many more pages have been written on all of these subjects, but de Nemethy manages to say it all clearly and briefly. The key to ones success in using this book is that it contains numerous wonderful photographs as well as diagrams and exact information on what exercises to use, what distances and heights to work with, and how the horse is likely to react to each phase of the schooling. Every element in the experience of the horse and rider is detailed and explained. It is a shame, for both riders and horses, that this book is not available at a reasonable price; in the last month I have advised three people to buy it, and I can think of several more whom I would give it to, if the base price were not upwards of $300! Thank goodness I had the sense to buy it when I did!
