    Another jumping critique(:

    Hey, its me again. Aha, yes I would love another jumping critique. These videos are from today, and sonny is a 14.2 hand quarab. We havent been able to jumping much, so im trying to keep improving. I know he has super short strides to the jumps and is getting close spots, im really working on it. All jumps are 2'3-2'6. Thanks!!

    You look really nice :) All I can really say is that you are coming out of your 2 point a bit early and your hunching a bit. And also your leg is moving quite a bit so just work on that :) Nice job!

    I agree with BuntEquestrian. I don't think your leg is that bad, though... Also, coming up to the jump, it seems a little bit like you're "sitting in a chair" (as my trainer put it, I used to do it all the time) so lean forward a little bit, lift your hands, and move your center of gravity forward. As far as I can tell(the video's a bit blurry) your position over the fence is quite nice. I don't know what part of your riding is connected to your back and leg problems, but I hope this helps!

    Kitty47- Thank for pointing all of that out! I have never had good posture, so that might be why I hunch my back a bit. Its not a good habit! And idk about my legs, I think I possibly could be pinching with me knee..But it did help, thank you!

    Frankiee- aha, thankk you. I would have to say I do love lime green too(:

    Same thing I usually tell you- let him move! Get momentum up to the fence, otherwise his timing is messy. Also, in all of the jumps (cept the last one, I noticed, where he took a long spot) his knees are way uneven. Maybe time to do some grids? With shows coming up, you're going to need to practice lower jumps anyway. :)
    I don't know why I'm bothering to type this since I'll see you in a bit, but whatever.
    As far as your position goes, I think you might've pinched your knee a bit, cos your lower leg was swinging a little and that would definitely explain why he wasn't moving out. You looked like you were up on his shoulder on one of the jumps, and a little up his neck on another, so watch out for that...
    Really the thing I noticed was you looked like you were resorting back to standing up in the stirrups- like when he jumped it took you by surprise, so you just two pointed without 'feeling' the jump. Pah, cheap words from someone who doesn't jump. But that's what I see, from what I know about you & Sonny. Luck! :)

    While I love that you're making an effort to approach the fences in an upright posture and not jump ahead, it seems to be backfiring by you dropping back in the saddle too soon. Maybe ride in a more forward inclined position to save you the effort of having to catch up to the motion when he jumps. Otherwise looks good.
