I have no feedback, but how on earth do you remember your courses?? Very impressive.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

@MyBoyPuck -- Funny you should say that I go off course at LEAST once for each show, unfortunately. I always have a REALLY hard time remembering courses. Actually, the reason I put music over my rides instead of leaving the audio raw, is usually because you'll hear me yell "Where am I going!?" to which my trainer or dad (whom is also the camera-man ) will direct me to. It's something I'm continuously working on. It is especially hard at this venue, because we aren't allowed to walk the course, and we don't get the courses until the morning of the show.

I do not jump, but your horse is very cute! You guys look great over the course, like a team. I like how he is not out of control, the racing around with no rhyme or reason is what turns me off from jumpers usually. You guys make it look much nicer than that.

Thank you so much :) Jumpers should never be race-y or out of control if done correctly in my opinion. The big time jumpers are never out of control, so I don't think the low levels should be either. Thank you very much for your lovely comments!

Agreed with all prior posts! Lovely round!

One of my favourite techniques to use with my students is have them ride around a course staying in two-point or a half seat. I then have them do the exact same course but sitting down and really riding through corners, in between longer lines, etc...

Maybe try this and see how it feels? Tighter corners are easily to ride in a seated position so you can really help your horse sit back on their haunches and get off the front end! You may notice that this will help your hands as well as most of us get lazy with our hands mainly when we stay in our two-point around a course!

Hope this helps and again, awesome round!
