Critique our gymnastic line!

Me and Tuck are at camp this week. Today we worked on gymnastic lines without stirrups or reins. I dont know if you can tell in the video, but i dont have either. Have at us! Oh and this is right after i just fell off

I haven't really jumped in years, and even then never got too far so no critique from me. This looks like a lot of fun though, once you get the hang of if of course! Major points to your for jumping without stirrups OR reins :)

wow! you look fantastic! i could barely tell. id be terrified to jump with no reins! no stirrups i can handle, but the horse i ride builds up so much steam before a jump that he'd be galloping over them with no reins. :o

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

Good for you for getting back on and jumping without stirrups AND reins after falling! I thought you looked lovely!

Looks good! The only thing I can find to pick at is keep up the impulsion when approaching (the first poles were a bit slow and he clipped the cross rail). You don't want the horse to be sluggish on the entry of the whole line will suffer :)
Awesome job, though!

He knows when you're happy,
He knows when you're sad,

And he always knows when you have carrots.

Yhea. Tuck is 16.3hh! And he is sluggish in the beginning because he was rushing them before, so we were working on getting him to slow down.

Thanks for the critiques!!
