    critique our jumping

    Hi guys, Sunny and I have just started jumping, just small jumps as we're both learning together (Don't worry, I have help from trainers, I'm not doing it alone) and my friend's dad got some pictures and video of us the other day. I wanted to post them here and ask for some critique for both of us. Tips on how I can improve and what I can do to help him would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

    Alrighty. Just a few minor things!
    1) In the third picture, your heel is up, and your toes are pointed out. Sink deeper with your heels, and rotate your ankle so your toes are pointed forward. This will also help your leg from sliding back!
    2) In the video, your horse looks like he is rushing the fence a little bit, keep motivation going, but don't let him rush. When the jumps get higher, he's going to need to suck back so that he doesnt go flat over the fences.
    3) You have a beautiful release and a nice flat back!

    AHHHH! How did you make pictures like that? All in photoshop? Sooo cool!

    Thanks Hailey, I'll bear that in mind :)
    The pictures were taken with my friends dads phone, it has a setting where it takes continuous photos and puts them together.

    Lengthening your stirrups a hole or two may help you push your leg into the correct position. Down by the girth instead of in front or behind

    Your position is actually very very good! Your not over exagerating your fold like so many people are doing, and you are giving enough release. LIke it has already been mentioned just keep your foot by the girth, rotate your heels and sink deeper. Excellent!

    No rushing fences. Especially when you're learning. Nice, slow, and boring. This will give you time to see your distance, and will teach your horse to wait.
