    Smile First time jumping this season, harsh comments welcome!

    So this is our first time jumping this season and besides my lower leg and "pumping" shoulders what else do you see that needs work? And how can I fix the two problems I listed and whatever else you find? Thanks!

    I notice your leg is swinging A LOT before/after jumps. Be solid in your foundation. Heels down more. And I assume you are a hunter, follow your horse down more with your body instead of snapping right back up. Hunter judges like to see your horse complete the motion. That's just my opinion though. You look more like an eventer on the back side of jumps... And that's complete opposite of hunter. Hahaha Good over the jumps though. Keep ridin hard :)
