I apologize if the photos are too fuzzy - they are screen shots from videos and I am also posting the video two of them came from. I currently take Dressage lessons once a week and jumping lessons once every two weeks. I am delighted with how me and Jynxy have progressed and wanted the opinions of some of my most respected horse people - fellow HF'ers! I am aware of my weaknesses and I work hard to overcome them and I am perfectly fine with harsh critiques - it's how I learn best! Thanks guys!
Reference - this was me in October with no current jumping lessons. Despite winning the class, I CRIED when I saw these because it was so unacceptable to me. I immediately started jumping lessons:
Poor Jynxy! She's such a good spirit! These are from the last few weeks!
2'0" vertical, slightly long spot, video still from video below
2'6" scary vertical with white picket fence filler, stillshot from video below! Haha you can see in the video she tries to dodge a little so I rode a bit defensive!
3'0" vertical! I love this horse, so athletic. This was a crossrail and then three stride to the vertical and she stayed so calm! Taken from a separate video taken by my instructor! (Not shown)
Video doing a 2'0-2'6" course at home:
Thanks guys! I know we're not great but she's a game little mare and we're working hard! Her partboarder wants to do eventing with her this summer! Posted via Mobile Device
