^^ Nice video, Lost! You trot fences better than most professionals i've seen!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Thanks! I miss jumping, but I guess that's the price you pay when you buy a baby! :)

Your horse hesitated and it rusulted in him juping too close to the jump. You didn't quite hold your two point for long enough and landed hard on his back. I suggest doing some low bounces with your arms out like wings to develop a more independent jumping seat before you jump another 2'6 fence like the one in the video. All the best to you and the horse:)

I agree with everyone else. Everything about the video just seemed awkward. Your position isn't secure but you won't put your stirrups up. Your position on the flat needs work, and that then transcends into your jumping position. You either get left behind, slam onto his back hard and yank him in the mouth, or you get ahead of the movement and stay forwards for too long.

Going back to smaller jumps won't make you any less of a rider. It is essential to have a good foundation, and in my opinion, only when you have perfection at small heights should you attempt bigger.

Sorry if I sound cranky, I'm tired
