MyBoyPuck- Thank you =]
Yeah, I noticed my elbows out like that too.
MIEventer- thank you a bunch! That was great to hear, expecially since you look like the type who have been doing this a long time.
And sorry, I really don't want to sound selfish, or acting like I am a pro... But I have trained about four horses to jump, and his old owner (little older than me... had him for about three years) said that he is a big "I need to test you horse" and she is there when I jump him, and she can tell his is not afraid of it, as is it is not rider error, he is always checking to see who is in charge... That's why we are not that high yet, because I have to get him over the fence from a walk.
But thank you for your comments, they were fantastic, and great to hear.
