Gcse Pe Coursework Horse Riding

 
  1. Hiya
    Has anyone ever done horse riding as part of their gcse pe? It sounds really good and I think I can do a lot of what it says but my horse is scared of jumping and on the criteria it says jump 3ft :/ Could i still get a high mark even if I only just cross poles??
    Thanks x

  2. Hey, I'm just going to give this thread a little bump in the hopes someone will see it Have you tried asking a teacher at school about this? Perhaps they'd know - or a riding instructor if you have one?

  3. I know a few people who did this when they were at school, but most of them competed in eventing or showjumping, so jumping 3ft was not really a problem for them. As I understand it, you don't have to use the same horse for all elements of the practical, so could you have a schoolmaster lesson to complete the jumping element?

    I also thought that if you could perform the dressage elements to a high enough standard, you don't need to do all the jumping elements- although obviously you should confirm this with your teacher- however, this would require a high level of lateral movement and engagement, which again, your horse may not be capable of.

    Otherwise, as suggested, I would discuss it with your teacher. If you complete everything else to a good standard, it may be that not jumping 3ft won't affect your mark too much.
