    Critique Jumping!

    Well today I was working with a 3 yr old draft cross so I decided to take some video of us jumping a teeny wittle 1 footer just so I don't mess up her joints, in these clips I was working on Cantering the landing! She's got it down!! YAYA LOLA!!!

    Be honest! Not to harsh though haha Im supprised my legs didnt slip back o.o! Usually well when me and chance use to jump we were going 2 1/2 ft so This was a little change ANYWAYS enough with the talking let me know what you think! Critique the big cow as well :P that's not be mean ya know she's black and white and HUGE!! Love her though! Can't beleive she's only THREE!!

    I think she looks like a very honest horse and you both look like you are doing it with ease.
    Good stuff

    What a cute draft cross, and she looks huge. I think for the height of the jump you are doing everything fine. It's a small fence, you don't have to go into a large two point, so good job. The one thing that I would change is your approach to the fence. Get a good trot going and set a consistent pace with her moving forward off your leg. Do a circle, go around the ring once, whatever, just get a good even pace going. If you bring your leg back underneath you a little more, it will be much easier to get more out of her and get a little more impulsion to the fence.

    If you walk around, then turn to the fence and just trotting, it can create problems with the horse rushing, especially since at the other side of the fence you stop after a few strides and walk. You don't want the horse to think it can just rush through it. It's only a short video, but in case you do this a lot.. just a heads up.

    Anyways, you two look good, and she seems like a fun horse to work with.

    Thanks :) No I usually don't do that too much usually ill trot her around and while trotting I would turn her toward then fence and land in a canter. But thanks for the tip good to keep in mind!
