Blinkers for jumping?
My friend and I went riding earlier today, and I immediately noticed she had blinkers on her horse. We were going off for some show jumping practice, so I asked her why she had those on him. She explained that her horse gets unfocused easily when he jumps, so she uses them on him. He's a lovely Swedish Warmblood, but he tends to be a little scatterbrained.
In all my 15 years of riding, this was the first time that I've seen a horse wearing blinkers for jumping. So it made me curious..
Does anyone here use blinkers for jumping? And would you recommend I try some on one of my Thoroughbreds (who's mind on occasion seems to wander when we're jumping)? He goes alright without blinkers though.
