    Pick your hands up keep the contact with the bit, back it up with your legs by squeezing him through the middle of your legs (like a tube of toothpaste) so he is moving up and is clear that you mean business over the fence. If you're not sure, especially since he's been able to get away with looking at it and balking, then he will take that route every time until you tell him he's gotta' listen because you're the one driving this train!

    To me, it looks like you're resting your hands on his neck. I always got yelled at for that when I started practicing for shows.

    Oxer is right, and it's why I got hollered at. Haha. Other than that, not bad at all!

    Your toe is turning out, and your foot is a little far up the stirrup...
    But you two look fantastic! I have an Arab/Welsh also, they make great little jumpers, huh?

    Thank you every one!
    I know I jave to work with my toes! They annoying me soooo much!!

    VanilliaBean yes some of them are very good little jumpers.

    Since Archie was 2 month's old he was out doing led rein shows and he even got to do some Royals! And then he was sold to an endurance home and did a bit of that, then more showing this time riding and then again got to royal's, then he got sold and just sat in the paddock for about 2 years then we got him and taught him how to jump.

    Archie has done a bit of traveling around Australia. He was born in Sdyney, went to Tasmina then to South Australia, back to Tasmina the he came to Victoria.

    I will post some picture's of Archie not likeing dazzels boards tomorrow.

    Better start schooling over those things. Over and over and over again until it's boring. Blue ones, green ones, brick ones, flower covered ones!

    Yes we do nearly every day! Except everytime he will always just have to have a look even though you have jumped them a million times before! I will post picture from this weekend on Monday as I have an showjumping event.

    Make sure you're really sitting back and driving with your legs to those scary fences. If you get up into 2 point too early, he'll think you've left it all to him and most horses will opt for "no" in that case.

    Yes MyBoyPuck all my friends get in to there 'two point' way to early. I like to sit back for every fence it makes me feel like I' in more control. I will post some pictues of today tomorrow. Warning before every one yells at me because of my relese (Cause today Archie was being very naughty so I didn't get a chance to really relese much) So just read this before hand.
