I personally would like to see shorter irons. Also, you buried your pony a bit to this fence.

I can't decide what to say about this video... something just looks a little bit off to me. I want to say that I don't think you're quite ready to be jumping this height, but it's hard to say from a video of one fence. It looks a bit disorganized / your position looks a bit off, possibly from the awful distance you got. It may also be because your stirrups are a bit long, giving you an unstable base of support.

color me confused; why on earth did you post asking for a critique?

If can't do anything other than exactly what you're doing because of 1) your instructor 2) the horse's owner 3) knee pain, what is it you expect to gain from poster's responses here?

If you just want "Atta girls!" I suggest posting in the photo section.

You've been given correct and accurate commentary in this thread. Either one of the posters or I could expound on it or give more detailed explanation, but your responses have very effectivly shut off further discussion.

Good luck to you.

I suggest you read the stickied threads at the top of the forum re: asking for a critique before posting in her again.

I suggest you see a doctor and stop riding until you figure it out. If riding with proper stirrup lengths causes you THAT much pain something isn't right.

You'll be in a lot more pain when you fall off and hurt yourself.

I don't know if you currently ride in and/or have tried the jointed irons... but I'm a rider that jumps big from time to time and has the knees of an old old lady! So when i switched to the jointed irons, my knees felt 100% better and my position got much better as well. you don't have to spend a fortune either. I bought these and they work just fine.

Just CRITIQUE not being told what hight i SHOULD jump or that i shouldn't ride.

No im just angry i dont like being told what to do, because i have other telling me what i should do.

yea i shut it of coz i am pissed other people who have critique me in the past didn't tell me i shouldn't be riding or that i should be jumping lower. All i want is critique and if i am told that i should be jumping lower why isn't there an explanation for that ?
Good luck to you.

Where are the people that used to critique me ? I liked their critique, because it was just critique (an assessment of how i ride, rather than being told recommendations).

Sorry, hun, but what do you think a critique is? A GOOD critique is constructive, which means you get SUGGESTIONS on how to IMPROVE your ride.

The explanation for why you shouldn't be jumping this height is above. Your position is insecure, your leg is insecure, and you appear rushed and overall not ready. If you 'don't like being told what to do', I suggest you stop posting asking for critique until you can grow up just a little.
