    Smile Critique Jumping Videos/Pics!

    My friend Sam (lovehorsesandrunning on here) came over yesterday originally to school the stallion with me, but then we decided to teach my gelding Arthur to jump. He's a 14'3" 23-yr old Paso Fino who goes English or Western, but I almost always ride him Western. Yesterday we were riding in a bareback pad because my TB's trainer has my English saddle right now. We'd love some constructive criticism for improving over fences!

    Sam took lessons in third through fifth grade I believe and hasn't been riding regularly since then. She comes over to ride Arthur sometimes. I've ridden Western all my life, and am switching to English to get into eventing. (Looking to buy an eventer btw if you know of any!) I'll be getting lessons in eventing as soon as I find a horse for it, so I will eventually learn to jump properly .

    What's in this video is how far we've come since starting Artie over ground poles and tiny raised trot-overs yesterday (we worked a few good hours with him, on and off) to this morning, where we worked with him on getting his strides right. I'm ordering training/galloping/splint boots for him so his poor feet don't get knocked up on my metal jump poles. I'm Sage and my friend is Sam (posted with permission).

    What I see in myself is I need to teach Arthur to maintain a constant canter towards a jump without me having to pump like that. He only does that towards a jump, I'm sure because it's new to him. I need to work on sitting up straighter. And coming up from 2pt sooner after the jump.

    Sam thinks she needs to work on remembering to two-point, so that's what I helped her focus on today. Critique welcome of horse & riders! (pssstt remember: the horse is 23 years old and not of a breed notorious for its jumpers!)

    Yes I know, the video has no music yet and needs a lot of editing, but I wanted to show you what I have. Enjoy

    And here's a pic of Arthur and I over a 2'6" verticle....Ignore my scrunched up face haha

    You have a pretty good little horse there! He looks pretty good, but I noticed another thing: a bareback pad with stirrups! Those things are horrible to begin with and could cause serious damage to your horse's back if you jump him with it. (Plus, it's very dangerous for you as well)But, please post another video like this when you get your English saddle back :) I'd really like to see how you guys do (hehehe, a Paso Fino jumper is really interesting to me (: )

    Thanks! I didn't know it was bad for his back but I can see how now that I think about it! No support! I'm going to go get my jumping saddle from the trainer's this weekend and then I'll post more videos but any suggestions or critique from this video?

    Oh! I did not know that either! Well that's good to know now. Although it makes sense and it was very hard 2 pointing in that bareback, as you priobably saw haha.
