So the other day I finally found someone who could video tape me - I got on my horse to bop around and got this. You can critique if you like :] (i know I got a little chair seaty but that's about it)
My horse is a 16 yr old OTTB and he's improved big time since I got him - still working on his head set. Its there on the flat but disappears when we start jumping hehe
Im not sure how many feet it was - he has a huge size so its hard for me to set them [i don't have a trainer]. In that video he shoved it in, but others he did it comfortably; it may have been too short, but I do gymnastics a lot to get him to figure out how he needs to set himself up and it has helped him gain a lot of confidence.
Ya I normally take like the biggest step I can like 4 times or something like that lol but he's pretty honest - when he's going to go he goes, if he's going to chicken out he lets me know. I have had him for 4 years and he hasnt thrown me (knock on wood) haha :]
I don't know why on that video he pretty much like chipped cause I remember he kinda just went for it but the others he was okay.
