    Jumper Schooling

    Hey guys! This is me and my mare schooling today. We normally ride in the children's jumpers :). She was getting really strong into this one stride, so I really had to sit back and ask her to rock back to the second jump. Any critique of me and my awesome pony is welcome! Thanks!

    Ps. Sorry about how close the picture is, my mom doesn't know how to zoom my camera out :)

    First off, I LOVE your little mare!! She looks like a blast to ride, and I love that look in her face. She looks awesome! I mean, those knees!

    You look like a fantastic rider, and I don't have too much to comment on except for your hands. You seem to be hovering over her neck. I realise she was a bit strong, but make sure you aren't laying on her mouth too much. Remember to press your hands onto her neck; Not laying on her neck, just grounding your hands so that you aren't riding her mouth. Do you have a video you could post? That could give us a little more to work with.

    You and your *adorable* pony look great together. I really can't find anything other than xJumperx 's comment... Great job!

    When I look like that over a fence, I will be very happy. Xjumperx already pointed out the release, so I got nothing. Looks nice and secure to me.
