Chinga Jumping


Welll I've finally convinced myself to post this. I look shocking! So anyway, I would like you to critique Chinga's jumping. These were taken awhile ago and I do believe that the date is wrong. I think it was earlier in the year then that. Poor baby isn't wearing his jumping boots, but after those two jumps they were on. A bit of a background on Chinga's jumping.

Well when I got Chinga all he knew was kick = run. He was extremly hard to ride at a trot and was shocking to keep at a trot, always trying to canter then gallop. He was skinny and wasn't brushed daily. He wasn't sure about having "human love" every day and being fed out of bright buckets. He was also scared of trotting poles, would go over one and then freak out thinking he was "trapped". He was also never rugged at night so he didn't have much energy left after training and then trying to keep warm at night. He also was a very trippy horse.

Now - Chinga is extremly good natured and loves to be cuddled, his walk, trot and canter are heaps better. I have even started on collecting his trot and exstending it. Chinga loves to rub on people and has a lovely coat as he is groomed at least daily. He enjoys jumping alot and the highest we have gone is 1m. The trotting poles are fun. He thinks they are great! He knows the orange and pink buckets are his and he likes to take them for walks. Has enough energy to still be able to move after work. Is rugged all night and if it is a cold day he gets his summer rug on while not being worked.

Chinga has improved so much in everything from leading and picking up his hoofs. To galloping (in control) and jumping. He makes me proud every time I ride him. So I would like you to see what he can do and some advice for him would be great, ignore me I look crap. Its the day after a full day jumping, I was stuffed.

Thanks, I had more falls in the first 2 months of owning him then in the 10 years of riding I had been riding for. He would just run with a squeeze and go nuts, unstoppable! Yeah I came off him really badly twice, once I was riding alone and he freaked reared then bucked I flew over his head hurt my back, neck, arm and head (I was wearing a helmet) and dad asked me if I wanted to sell him. It didn't even cross my mind. Because I knew some little kid would fall in love with his cuteness and get badly hurt by him. At least I have half a clue what he is going to do. Now I know him back to front.

The second time I was riding and my friend came out to watch us. Mum went to the shops (my friends mum was in the house). Unsure what happened I just fell and got exstremly badly winded and if it wasn't for Pumpkinzmybaby22's smart move I most likely wouldn't of ever been aloud on a horse again(thats another story)

I think it's great that Chinga is doing so well...I think you might benefit from some jumping lessons though; don't hear me being mean when I say this, but you are very unbalanced in those jumps, and that can cause some of the issues the horse might encounter\give you. If you have a friend who has a nicely trained jumper, take some lessons on it, so you can help Chinga out more.

I went to jumping clinic, and fixed all my balance problems (I stopped jumping for a year and the only jumping I did was with Chinga). I feel alot better balance wise in my jumping. I even jump Chinga with no hands! :)
