    I forgot to put my stirrups up after I was warming him up, and didn't notice until you pointed it out! I'll try not to forget next time :P

    Thanks for putting everything into really good detail, and describing ways to fix them.

    I'll try to get a photo/video of us jumping higher, but I don't want to go above 70cm until I know that he is fit enough to do it.

    Again, you've been really helpful (:

    I do not think that jump is unsafe. If the pony bumps it, it will simply fall over.
    thankyou (:

    Strange about the video.. if I go riding tomorrow i'll try get a better one.

A cross country jump isn't just something you do randomly, it takes alot of practice to be able to ride cross country safely.

    Actually, a properly constructed SC jump is not even close to more dangerous than the set up the OP has shown us. The OP's set up will travel with the horse and likely trip them up should they have an issue with it.

    Ilovemyhorsies, a good way to practice your release is on the flat. Get in 2point and trot and canter around practicing moving your hands up the neck and then back to normal. You can also practice doing this over poles before you jump again.

    I know a lot of people who ONLY jump xc type fences, I see nothing wrong with it especially if they are low.

    I meant "XC" not "SC"... for cross country...
