    Jumping 3'9

    As some of you know Doc is my 9 year old QH gelding. I have had him for eight months. And he is doing fenomally =]] Today our ring was too wet to jump in so we brought a jump out into our work area to work on. Doc was doing so well and the jump ended up at 3'9. I had no idea it was that high untill I got off. Here are some pictures. The first three are 3'9 and the rest are from warmmup =]

    Enjoy :) :o

    Are you sure that's 3'9?

    Sorry...But I must correct myself...The first one is 3'9 The second one is 3'6. But yes i'm sure. I didn't believe it at first so I made one of my friends measure it The angle makes it seem smaller. Heres a video that shows the size nicely

    Hey there,

    You seem to twist your body when you are in mid air, that's causing your whole body to be off balance causing your horse to jump to the side...it may just be the photo. Your lower leg is horrible, you need lower your centre weight into your heels. Try trot poles in 2 point.

    Otherwise, just work on that and you guys should be on the road to success!!

    How big is that horse? Must be HUGE to make that 3'9 good job, congrats!

    Delregan...Yeah I know. He actually doesn't. It's the picture. Yeah my leg really flys back. I'm working on that.

    Also...he is 15'3 =] Never underestimate a little horse. He clears them with room to spare too.

    That youtube link got me started on a 3 hour tour of youtube's horses. Crazy man, crazy. I couldn't even remember how I got there. *shakes head and wanders back off to the real world*
