Jumping mounted.—After horses have been trained in jumping at liberty and on the longe, they are made to jump mounted.

At first they must be in the snaffle bridle. Always begin with insignificant obstacles. In the riding hall, place the bar on the ground and afterwards raise it gradually according to the confidence shown by men and horses. Out of doors, start with very easy jumps and work up gradually to the class of obstacles that every service mount should clear.
