We consider refined versions of Markov chains related to juggling. We further generalize the construction to juggling with arbitrary heights as well as infinitely many balls, which are expressed more succinctly in terms of Markov chains on integer partitions. In all cases, we give explicit product formulas for the stationary probabilities and closed-form expressions for the normalization factor. We also refine and generalize enriched Markov chains on set partitions. Lastly, we generalize the construction to juggling with different kind of balls.
