Thank you.

You are just not used to vaulting. You will figure this out if you are serious about getting back to the Level 7 routines. You need to take a lot of turns to get more comfortable with the hurdle and the jump to the board. Work some drill where the horse is not in front of you and just jump on to a mat or bounce across to a lower surface and just work the run to the board. You will get over the stutter step.
