Video's of my jumping at my first schooling show. I know I shouldn't be making excuses but keep in mind that the horse I am riding is a schooling horse, she had been used all this week for the horse camp and was being ridden for 4 hours each day which she is not used to. Also, unfortunately she's a lot of peoples favorite horse, not just mine. She was being used by someone in every class, sometimes twice in the over fences. By the time she got through all the under saddle classes, and the cross rail divisions, she was absolutely covered in sweat and exhausted. We took her saddle off, sponged her and gave her some water to help her out before I rode her.. but she was still extremely tired and it was taking everything I had just to keep her from breaking into a trot this is also why she had rails down, I very rarely have a rail down riding her, especially over 2ft jumps. Therefore my EQ isn't exactly at its best. But I'd still like to know what you think, I know I'm squeezing with my knee, my leg is slipping back and I've lost my heels.. this is also making my lose my balance over the jumps. Anything else you can see though?
Oh and yes I was supposed to trot into the 2nd jump, this was a medal class, unfortunately she was supposed to canter out but I couldn't get enough pace before the jump for her to be able to do that.
