    Crit Molly's Jumping

    ***The music in the video's might offend some people, and contain some swear words.***

    <--- Jumping up to 3ft.

    This is her first time free jumping, and she did amazing (IMO) except a few times when she didn't want to jump going into the chute which caused me to 'chase' her into it causing her to rush. She was fine at the end and did it at her pace (which was still speedy). I realize she is cantering fast but that is her normal canter speed even on lunge or not heading towards the jump, and I'm working on slowing her canter down. Please critique her form over the jumps not the speed she is going towards them, is pretty much what I'm saying since I'm working on slowing her canter down.

    <--- Doing cavalettis & jumping 2ft on lunge.

    First time doing cavalettis, which she figured out after the first few times. Critique this too if you can. Haha. Towards the middle is the jumping. I know she got the wrong lead after a few of the jumps and once going into but at the very end you can see that we ended the session on the right lead after the jump.

    I think she's lovely. I appreciate that she can find her own distances, she's careful, and seems to enjoy it. I think with training, fitness, and a solid rider, she will be able to be a nice little sport horse!
    What is her breeding?

    Yeah, she just needs to learn how to slow down. She's like a freakin speed demon when I put the jumps up, and I think the previous owner jumped her in one direction only because she hates going to the right... or its just her. Haha. Thankss(: Once she gets more muscle and what not I'm going to see how high she can really go. I mean did you see the space between the 3ft jumps?! She's only 14.2hh. LOL. She's a registered Morab, her registered name is My Sharona Bask Gates if you want to look at her pedigree. I don't think its anything special but I don't know much about Morgans or Arabians.

    I would try putting a line of trot poles before the fences to make her pay attention to what she's doing instead of seeing the jump and rushing into it. I really like her though and she has nice movement. I think with a confident rider and someone who can tell her that no you will jump when I say so, she will turn out to be a really nice horse for you.

    I'm planning on doing that but I have to get more poles because right now I only have four or five.

    Thankss(:

    She has a lot of potential. I think you need to put a placing rail a foot out from the base of the vertical on both sides, and placing poles to try to slow her down and focus on where she's putting her feet.

    Oh and this is her first ride. D I only uploaded about a minute of it because that's all she did. Haha. Nothing entertaining at all. :p

    BTW I am in fact wearing a helmet in case some of you can't see it. LOL.
