If something had happened to her, you would be the one crying because you'd be faced with all sorts of lawsuits.

You need to straighten up your leg, and get that heel down and into a better supporting position, but otherwise you look okay.

And yes, that grass makes me jealous...just desert sand here!!!Lol!!!

LOL, well that was when we were doing the paddocks for hay, we were the annoying kiddys jumping in the hay paddock.

that grazing is horrible in the winter, non existent.

That horse was an absolute angel jumping like that for a first timer. Wow. Any of my two horses would have freaked. Well done though. = D

[quote=makin tracks;441599]First of all the grass!!! You should not have long green grass like that!! It's just wrong! (I'm jealous, my paddocks are very brown and almost bare at present)

i have grass that long, you need to move to a wetter country like ireland or england. always got great grass but more rain

Work a lot on no stirrup work. I'd have to see your leg on the flat, but I think your stirrups might be a touch too long. Don't over jump- the fence isn't that big, so keep your bum closer to the saddle and don't get ahead of your horse.

For a very first jump, that was brilliant!! Your hand should ideally be above the neck, but really, not bad. The horse must really be a honey to jump that :)
