    improved jumping?

    Hey, some of you have probably seen one of my previous threads of me jumping Lacy. I have taken your critique/suggestions from my old threads and other peoples. I think the result of my last threads a month or too, I look much better. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance

    It's a vertical, Daria.. LOL.
    Landing looked a little rocky.. but how much can you expect? Lacy can't be amazing all the time! XD
    But you looked GREAT! Although, if you're wearing a tank top.. couldn't you have used the outdoor? Haha.

    I thought you looked a lot better Daria! You waited for the fence and didnt get ahead! :)
    The only thing I have to say is when you were along the rail about to turn, think about slowing your body and squeezing and releasing. Do some halfhalts so she doesnt come to the fence so rushy.

    I thought you two looked really good! I've been working with my new instructor and I feel like Im improving too! :)

    Thanks! It wasnt really your turn... it was just more of her resisting your hands. Once she softens her mouth you guys will be even better! She turning out to be a cute jumper!

    Haha so does Winston. But a lot of times they jump the smaller ones sloppier with their front end it seems.
