I hope that is the case with the feet! I would love a reason for the bar dropping but not a reason that is terrifying like DM.

Thanks all.

I had a horse that it seemed just didn't care about dropping rails when jumping.
He'd drop his back legs just a touch when going over and down would come the rail.

Because it was all for fun and I wasn't competing I didn't take any measures to try to correct it, but when I had my mare later asked my trainer about it.
She said it would be impossible for her to say for sure without seeing him jump (I had sold him by this time) if it was his jumping style related to conformation or if it was just that he really didn't care.

She told me she had a mare that she was able to determine that it wasn't conformation based and so she put a heavier rail on deeper cups for a few rounds so the mare really knew she had hit something. She said the mare had some dropped rails after that (as all horses will) but no longer consistently dropped the rails.

Barb this is one of the suggestions Lori had for us too. She wanted me to fill bars with sand, slide the jump bars into bigger PVC, and put a towl over the bars. He is not hitting solid wall jumps or the tire.

I got my ladder out last night to do ladder work and rear end work with him and although I did lots of this with him when he was apup he seems to have forgot this. He did pick it up fast again tho so I am hopeful still.

There's a TTouch wrap, using an ACE bandage, that wraps around the hind legs to increase hind leg and body awareness. Wonder if something like that would help. It helped Indy.
