Jumping Critique

From my most recent horse show...just a few days ago...

Some of the pictures are a little hard to critique my position, sorry about that... And as for the pictures of us going over the orange and blue oxer I do have my hand off the reins in order to give him a tad bit of encouragement with my crop...those were meant more for critique on my horse rather than I.

Please critique both my horse and I.

Thanks!!!

Also here are pictures of us beforehand.
I gained some very insightful suggestions on my riding on an earlier thread and applied them to my latest horse show.
So these are mainly for a before and after reference.

lol.

Great Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow very very nice. When you used the stick your position wasnt effected at all and most people will not use a stick on the bum over the jump because they know they will not be able to stay with the horse.

Your horse has a huge jump and you have a great solid position. You should go into some medals.. I think you would clean up.

Thanks so much!!!! I used to do medals on my other horse LaMia. I don't on him because he doesn't do his right to left lead change very easily. I'm in the process of finding a horse that someone will let me ride in the medals though.

I only notices 2 issues, but your basic position is VERY nice.

#1 - Toes are out. Currently this is OK (this horse during these pictures) but if you were wearing spurs you would inadvertantly be gigging the horse with spurs every time you turned out your toes. Now in jumping some turnout is acceptable (and several pictures show an acceptable turnout) but in a few it almost appears that the toes are turned out so far that the back of your calk (rather than the side of your calf) is on the horse.

#2 - Creast release. The pictures indicate an advanced rider - so time to modify the creast release to the George Morris "middle of the neck" release. Just a more advanced style, for which you appear ready.

Overall a very nice style.

Dressage is for Trainers!

I agree, toes are out which could lead to a bad postion down the line. Crest release is good for 2ft jumps but do a automatic release (on the sides of the neck) when doing anything higher.

You look great though! You have a nice round back :) I hate some of the hunters position.. They arch their backs and stick out their butts LOL

Keep up the good work :)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

These pictures are from the 3'-3'3" and then the 3'3"-3'6". I was supposed to do the 3'6"-3'9", but the ring at this horse show is huge and his energy levels would drop after the 3'6" so we didn't want to push it. I school up to 4' and sometimes higher at home.
