Someone has coached me about 2' jumps and such and the release needs to be really big (such as said above..) but after watching show jumping I have noticed that if anything at the bottom of the jump there is no release, in fact it looks as if there holding there heads up.
The reason for me asking here is that there have been a lot of things mentioned above about the release.
She said that this jump was 6'7 so I imagine that your release needs to be " holding the horse up " ?
I asked one of my trainers a long time ago and they said that you need to hold the horse up with the bit otherwise there going to tumble into the ground...I don't know about any of this.
It just looked like there was quite a bit of debate on releasing above...
