It is hard to see clearly, but it looks like your seat has progressed a lot! Does she like it? Jumping? Looking good!

Gidget does like it. She gives it her all and really focuses on jumping it. She does not hesitate anymore. And thank you! My new instructor has helped a lot! She showed me how to do half seat and I'm still working on perfecting it but for 2 weeks I'm pretty proud!

I did a lesson on a 4th level dressage pony yesterday and he does some jumping but my confidence level was so low while jumping him. I think that I was worried abotu how he jumps and what my instructor would think :P

yeah, I wonder why some youtube videos post small like that. Never used to.
You can tell the lessons are really making a difference. You know, you just cant teach yourself how to ride. You really need someone on the ground to guide you. I need lessons!

I can't really tell much, but it looks like you might be sitting too early, I'm sure your instructor can help you with that though! You look great for only two weeks of lessons with this new instructor!

Thank you!
So I am sitting too early after I do my jumps? So should I still be in my half seat. Today I jumped and for some reason Gidget was full of it and was LAUNCHING over some jumps and I lost my reins..that was scary. I need to keep her head up as when she did jump so put her head down =/....any ideas?
