    You gotta love Jim Wofford

    I am reading the October issue of Practical Horseman. Jim Wofford's column addresses jumping ahead. At one point he associates jumping ahead with projectile vomiting. I have to admit it is one powerful visual to take with me next time I practice jumping. I will be busting a gut laughing, but I bet I won't be jumping ahead anymore!

    He spends most of the article explaining the jumping position and the up beat of the posting trot are one and the same. The exact paragraph reads,

    "For obstacles up to 3-foot-6, your jumping position should be no farther out of the saddle than your normal posting motion. Done correctly, your position at the top of the arc is a response to the motion of your horse's back - rather than to you projectile-vomiting yourself up the neck of your poor, long-suffering horse."

    Love it.
