So my question is - have I become so accustomed to jumping in a Dressage saddle, I'll just have to re-learn how to use an all purpose saddle? Or is my all purpose such a hunk of junk, it's just not going to be possible for me to have decent position? I guess it's hard to answer that, I'm more looking for other peoples experience?
Anyway, feel free to critique! Haha, I'm using a halter because simply put, she goes better in it. She's never liked the bit, and she has a horrible rushing problem with the bit - just gets her nose up and stops listening to me. With a halter, I'm in total control. Maybe we can find some jumping competitions that will let me go in a halter and Dressage saddle?
Yuck! I think I was in bareback mode - I have no idea what I'm doing here, except failing in an epic way
A lot of people have told me to stop trying so hard over crossrails - is this more of how I want to look?
Not sure about this one, she jumped long and I think she just bumped me right out of the saddle
LOL, just cause she's cute
I think I'm standing more then anything?
Again, to far forward
FAIL! Completely and entirely my fault, I completely goofed up the striding, and she saved my butt like she always does, little princess
I really like this one and would especially love critiques on this one in particular...feels like I'm finally doing it half decent (2'5" by the way)
And a video of us jumping 2'5" (measured):
