photos from our most recent lesson

once a month me and gypsy have a lesson with a trainer named holly who is a H/J trainer. Our lesson on sunday was pretty bad (gypsy was cold backed and would not work out of it, going to have the vet/chiro out for her soon) but we jumped a little and she showed some improvement. Gypsy has been doing SUPER so it was a disapointing lesson, but hey, they are horses not machines.

If you want to critique feel free !!! I havent posted any photos of us in a long time !!

It could have been better, if you don't mind me saying it but your position could have been much much better.

The point of critiquing is to give the person/horse something to work on. Not just say "it could be better."
Give specifics, or you just sound like a snob.

from what I see (im not a jumper but just from the few times I have jumped) it looks like your leg slipped back just a touch

Gypsy, somehow I thought you do dressage, not jumping! :)

You have a very nice horse!

I think you and your horse look really good. Judging from those pictures it looks like you had a great lesson.

thanks guys !!

I love jumping, im not big into dressage, but I do it because I event ! I only jump green horses right now so its really hard to keep up with my eq but I try not to develop bad habits (do anyways though of course !). Gypsy is a great girl, but she was fighting VERY hard in that lesson ! Every time we did the oxer we trotted in, and she will jump pretty big over stuff !!
