I know we're not supposed to post pics of other riders, but I need you all to see this in context. Moderators, feel free to yank it if it's inappropriate. Look at the top 4 pics. It's me and 3 other riders jumping the same fence. I'm the 3rd photo. What concerns me is, while the other horses are jumping up with tight knees like there's an actual jump there, my guy is taking it more like a big canter stride. He either has poor form or just doesn't respect smaller stuff anymore. We just recently started cooking with gas where jumping is concerned, so I'm finally going to start challenging him more in terms of height. He does tend to jump in a guarded form since I used to commit the cardinal sin of catching him in the mouth. I'm happy to see from these pics that it's finally fixed. Any input on why he's jumping like that would be appreciated.
