    Aside from that 3rd fence you guys look great :)

    I think you couldn't quite make up your mind what you wanted to do, push her forward or pull her back - so you gave up and left her to decide, lol.

    I love how you drove her to the 5th fence - she started to buckle on you and you said "Nope, we're going over it" and did a great job encouraging her to continue.

    I love your functionallity. Look at your functional solid seat, your legs are very secure, you stay out of her way and leave her alone to do the jump. I think you have allot of potential and talent to move forward.

    You are far more ahead of the game than quite a few I've seen jump here in North America. But Europe's style of functional riding is much different than what is taught here - I should of moved there......no wonder GB's riders are phenominally talented.

    I watched an Eventing Video on youtube with a bunch of british riders - about our age and level - jumping fences that riders of the same level wouldn't even touch here in North America, and they were so solid and functional, I was so jealous. Alright...I'm moving to GB!
    Do you put studs on your horses shoes for your comps there?

    Yeah I was trying to decide whether to trot & canter since I attempted a flying change but ended up disunited and just ended up like "oh crap, help me Freckle "

    Yeah we do put studs in Misty & Freckle have a stud in each back hoof for shows, for bigger shows/jumps people usually have 2 studs in each back hoof :) I'm guessing you have studs over there too? Do you have to pay for the holes to be put in the shoes?

    That was my second show on Freckle so I was playing it safe with the small jumps and Mum wanted to be finished by dinner time She can jump the moon, its me who can't :roll:

    Thank you very much I am always trying to improve my position over jumps, but usually end up forgeting completely and concentrating on strides instead It'll get there one day

    I love how in American showjumping the riders actually go FORWARD though, British showjumpers (not all but alot) have their horses going so slow its a struggle to clear the jumps. Move to Britain, its awesome except the weather I want to move to America but would miss Cadburys chocolate too much hehe!

    The American Style of jumping here is overly done with equitation. I never saw that before, until friends in NZ and GB enlightened me.

    I now see how much more important it is to be functional, and staying out of your horses way to do his job. My issue is, I get in my horses way when I focus moreso on where I am in my tack and how "precise" I must be over that fence.

    You, you are exaclty where you need to be - if you want to talk "Equitation". Your leg is solid, your seat is FABULOUS * riders here need to see that* and your upper body is exactly where it should be. You are with your horses motion and stay behind your horse - that is functionallity.

    I wouldn't focus too much or stress too much about your equitaiton - I would focus more on the amazing GB's functional style of riding.

    You are where you should be - I wouldn't change a thing.

    No more long books from me - I'm not particular about equitation anymore.
