jumping critique

sorry it not the best quality video

just a small jump, my little sister and I were riding and it was kind a spur of the moment decision to jump and I didn't want to push it so we just jumped what was in the ring

From what I see your upper body and leg is very nice over the jump. One thing I do see wrong is that you need to have a little more release over the jump. And also stay out of the saddle longer when landing so you don't slam on the horse's back. But that horse is a very good jumper (:


Don't Dream it. Be it.

Thanks :) I love her to death! I find it kind of hard to stay out of the saddle, because she usually rockets off after the jump (and I didn't have her jumping bridle which has better control on so that didn't help that much :P) so if anyone has any tips on how to help this :)

I ride a VERY strong jumping mare that does the same thing. If you can't stay up out of the saddle over that jump, practice staying in two point on the flat a lot, strengthen your legs. The fact that you're slamming her back may be causing her to get upset and shoot forward after the jump. That may not be the reason, but a horse is never happy with riders slamming their back ;)

Thanks :) thats kind of what I was figuring (with the slamming back down causing her to shoot forward) :)

Lol yea when they have a powerful jump it can be hard. Just make sure you keep your heels down and stay in 2 point 2 strides after to the jump. See if that helps any(:
