Jumping Critique

Hello everyone! So I've never done a jumping critique on here before but I love reading your opinions. Please don't hold back, be honest! I am riding the bay arabian.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Two things jumped out at me. Your hands are in your lap. You seem so shorten them on approach, but you would have quieter aids if you just kept them out in front of you in the first place. You might just have one of those horses who continually talks you out of contact, but that really jumped out at me.

The other things is, the trot needs a bit more impulsion. Really march him up there.

Otherwise, looks pretty good. You're doing a good job waiting for your horse although the are hints you are anticipating and trying to time the jump. If your horse is trustworthy, shut your eyes a few strides out so you can feel him lift you rather than you worrying about when he's going to jump.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I echo My Boy Puck's well worded critique.

Perhaps you already did by pm or other ways, but it is nice to thank a person for their thoughts on the thread when you bump.

Btw, My Boy Puck....I love your signature! LOL!
