    Better quality video would be helpful. I'm not a fan of your posture. If you jump in a small arena can you eliminate some of those jumps?

    Your pony looks like he's quite fiery - and the others have some good things to help slow him down...

    One other thing I would suggest is waiting for the jump to come to you - your leaning forwarded way before the jump - sit tall coming into the jump to support your horse rather that leaning into it...

    You go into the jumping position way too early and idk if it's just me but you look very stiff (upper body).Relax and before you jump you should get rowdy to relax.

    Heres what I noticed...
    On the flat your line from your hands to your bit was broken downward. Try and make that line straight. Don't pull your hands downward if you want him to soften his head. Try doing serpentines (sp?) and 20 meter circles. Squeeze your fingers and release. Sit up and sit DEEP and eventually he will learn to relax his body, slow down, and go into more of a frame.

    Jumping wise... you need to wait for your fence. Make sure your horse is slow and relaxed coming to the fence BEFORE you turn. You don't want to be messing with him a few strides before the jump. That's his job. Squeeze and release before the turn and sit up. Sit deep in the saddle and wait for the jump. You will notice that he picks himself up more and may not rush as much. Count your strides before the jump so you don't go into position to early. Also make sure you are pushing your heels down over the fence so your leg doesnt go back.

    SHORTEN your reins and sit back. Sitting forward on a horse that needs more tempo and flat training makes them think that you want to go faster. Sitting back tells them to whoa and puts you in more control. Also, I don't want to see you running in to the wall to stop your horse. If you shorten your reins and practice sitting deep, flat exercises and lots of TRANSITIONS then you can stop your horse effectively. If you feel like you can't stop don't run into a wall make CIRCLES :)

    You and Rowdy are a very cute pair. You seem to have a lot of fun riding him and that's VERY important :)
    Keep it up!

    Thank you guys! I don't know what was going through my head when I was jumping. I think me and my friend were just goofing off. Lol.

    Eventnwithwinston-If I am walking and he starts to trot without me asking him a take him to the wall for 30seconds. It has helped him alot!

    I would really say work on the flat with him.. because the jumps ARENT helping his rushyness!

    Do ALOT of trot work with out jumps keep him in the trot for a good 10 mins eventually he will realize he should start slow because he will have to keep trotting even if he's tired.

    Same as the others. Seems like a crampt picture in a small arena. Yet to be on the good side, You did not to appear to be struggeling.You did move your horse about the small space.
