This is a very old pic of me, but my goal for my young horse would be jumping with a small amount of dressage. As he is still a project, there is little point in posting a pic of him - so here is an old pic of me. As he is still learning a lot, I may as well work on myself, or at least understand what I need to work on.
Thanks in advance, and I promise I won't get upset or argue with you!
It looks ok, your keeping the right contact with your legs, just the only thing I can suggest is a bit more bend in the elbows and maybe releasing a bit more with your arms (up the neck a bit more) and you seem to be leaning back a little bit so this may help, take off like your pushing your horse over the jump. Get what I mean? Pretty horse BTW :P
Thanks, this pic was from many moons ago, as I have ridden for a long time but ride alone most of the time and so have no pics. But I still have problems with keeping a bend in my elbow now, even with flat work. So thanks.
And while I said I can take anything, no comments on how much of a strong bean I am :) Talk to my father, it is his fault. :)
I think you look good, except your heals can go down more, and you kind of have chicken wing elbows. But I think that is a really neat picture it reminds me of pictures I see in old books my mom has (I'm not trying to call you old) And I had a helmet with a chin strap like too.
