    So you seem really stable with the smaller jumps as are for sure ready for the bigger, it's great that you got both videos to share cause I think it how's a big difference and that good cause you will be able to get lots of help!

    Secondly your a great little rider! Keep up tr good work!

    What I saw in the video with the lower jumps, your arms/hands.
    Your took your hands and starting steering down, meaning your hands where lower then they should be and your braced against Coffee. When ju
    Ping your want shorter reins, hands up and together and shoulders back so you allow with your hands up and controll the shoulders better.

    Your striding is great in the video with the Lower jumps. In the next video you can see your having a harder time balancing your body and getting some of the striding to the jumps. I think bounces and grids would really help! Also seems that Coffee is downhill in her/his movement and might be pulling you down before the jumps. When your approaching the jump, sit sall, wait (like you did in the video with tr Lower jumps) wait for the horse to take off and go with the movement, with the height of the jumps in the 2nd video you got to stay the same, don't change your body, count your strides, sit up and fallow and prepare for your next fence!


    Good job! Hands up and together, chest open and shoulders back, go with Coffee over the jump, keep sitting up after the jump to prepare for what's next!
    Keep up the good work! Keep the videos coming too!
    Oh and um I live your indoor arena!!!! Jealous!

    I agree with the above lol. Also, I feel that you should really use your legs with the sharps turns or the angled jumps. Ex. From .47 to .50 in the first video your right arm came really far out because when you came off of the first jump, I think you realized that you two would have missed the second jump totally(or jumped way to the outside) if you hadn't intervined and pull the right rein way to the right. Therefore, I think you are ready to really start steering and guiding Coffee(or whatever horse you are riding) with your legs. Remember, eyes,shoulder,torso, legs, THEN hands. Because if your trying to steer with the reins, your only going to move the horses head, not their body. Ex: Say if your at a canter approaching a jump because your not completely riding to the center of the jump so you pull left to adjust yourself. Your horse's head will turn left but their body and hindquarters will continue to go straight. So your going to end up kind of side stepping I suppose.... Ahhh not the best visual but hopefully you get the point. Turn left rein=head turning right, Turning left with reins AND leg=entire horse moving left. Get my drift? Ehhh I think you do lol.

    I love how you kept your arms bent at your sides. That is exactly where they should be. Besides you hips so you still have control and bend in your elbow. Love it!!
    Keep up the great work!

    I'd say shorten your reins a bit and keep your hands elevated a bit , it will help give Coffee an upward motion and help he to get over the jumps easier . Also , it seemed like when you approached the larger jumps especially you leaned your upper body foward a bit , try to sit up a little staighter and let her come up to meet you when she jumps . One more thing , try to keep your elbows from "popping out" like chicken wings when you jump by sliding your hands up Coffee's neck . You can slide your knuckles right up her neck . My trainer always says "get your knuckles dirty!!!" You look awesome though , have fun with Coffee !
    Hope this helped !
