I know this vid suckkkkssssss but i'm using a horrible computer (mine is getting fixed) so yeaaa xD lol

Have I improved at all? Please don't say anything about the stirrups being long. I know. They were on the last holes and if they were any shorter my knees would have been over the kneerolls :(

These are all really hard to critique because the pictures are so far away. In the third picture it looks like ur heels came up with screwed with ur whole position. Same with the second last one. Don't squeeze with ur knee's, I think once u get that heel down ur position will be pretty good.

Hey you know what - we can only fix one thing at a time. Be proud of yourself.

Remember, it isn't "Not jumping ahead" it is "Allowing your horses rhythm to do the job for you"

Allow your horse to lift you out of your tack, allow your horse to close your hip angle.

The biggest key to not jump ahead - is focus on your horse, not the fence infront of you.

RHYTHM. It isn't about the fence, it is about what is under you. Ride your horses rhtym, learn to feel your horses rhythm - allow your horse to do his job.

When you focus on the fence, you get this over thinking process that you are going through - let it happen naturally - focus on your horse, not the fence.

Remember - jumping is dressage with speed bumps. SO When you are doing flat work, you aren't focus on what is infront of you. You are not over thinking things - you are just allowing your horses rhtyhm to flow through you. SOOO why would you change your mindset when jumping??????

What fence? There is no fence! All I know is that I have a horse under me, where I must aid to keep rhythmic and rounded. What fence?

Rhythm, rhythm, rhtyhm. Ba dum, ba dum, ba dum. Ride my horse, ride my horse. Before you know you - you just went over the fence with ease.

Keep up the good work.
