    Jumping Critique

    This is just s hort video of Vega and I jumping. I quite like these video's except for the fact that my leg is not under neath me. The first one is about 2.6ft and the next one is around 2.9. Thanks guys!

    And please realize this was last fall at a PC riding and I have already started my 2011 show season but I have not been getting footage. I'll post that too when I get it ;)

    I love your horse, first off, and I love you before and after the jump, nice and controlled and very tidy. However, I think you do have some issues with your jumping position. Not big ones, mind you, just some things you can watch out for to make a good ride an even better one. First off, your hands are too far down in your lap over the fence. I think this is making you catch your horse in the mouth after the fence. Bring them up and forward, like this. (this is a random picture, not me)


    Mind you, don't lean over as far as this person is, your jump is smaller.

    Also, as you said, your leg is not beneath you. Shift your center of gravity forward.

    You've got the inbetween the fences stuff down nicely, from what I can see, just work on those position issues and you're golden. The inbetween stuff is what really counts, anyway.

    On an unrelated note, what breed is your horse? :) I'm fond of appaloosas

    Thanks :) I'll be sure to use all that when I ride next and I will update you :) The in between counts a lot

    He's a actually sort of an assortment ;) He's Appaloosa (color and nature and honestness), Thoroughbred (will for jumping, hyperness, build) and some Qh :)

    Vega's beautiful... I used to have a POA. The color is just so great, don't you agree? You two make a good team.
