Thank you! And yes I do need to fix my position. My release wasn't so good either :/ we both rushed into that jump he tend to be excited and race to them. But he is very honest never refused a jump yet. :) I want to do 2'6 that jump was 2' he cleared 2'3 with almost a foot to spare. Anymore sugestions? :)
Showing locally in the hunters you may do well. It's hard to see. Does he get clean changes? That will knock you down, more than you can imagine (if he doesn't)! He has to get perfect distances in each. Because he doesn't have papers and you aren't sure his breed.. you have to be aware of what classes you enter and what shows you go to. They may be more involved in conformation classes etc. I would avoid those. Have you ever shown hunters and equ before ?
No I have not. Right now just open clases. W/t/c I was busy training him how to jump and the english riding style. He was orginally a semi resque. He was put out to pasture to rot. I was originally looking for a thougouhbred but at the time I was not along in my riding and I wanted a baby sitter. Her was completely green but had a great temperment. He is a quarter horse mix. Vet said 1/4 thoughbre 1/4 morgan and 3/4 quarter horse. Or on a ratio of that. He does flying lead changes and we are working on auto changes over fences.
