    Jumping Critique!

    Ok, so this was only my second time jumping ever. I know they probably aren't that great, but I would love to know what I can work on! Thanks!

    It's pretty good for second time. Just keep practicing. :)

    By the way, I love your saddle blanket! I've been looking for one like that for so long, but no luck. :(

    ^ I'd say anchoring your heels and keeping your leg at the girth. The third picture is where your leg should be, in the first two it has slipped back. Others might have more advice.

    I think that something you can do is lunge your horse over jumps so then he/she will jump it. It looked to me that it was just stepping over it.

    Has nothing to do with whether the horse needs lunge work or not - has to do with the rider not supporting to the base of the fence and driving forward.

    If the horse doesn't have aid from his/her rider - then the result is this.

    So to put it simply, I was doing it all wrong?
