So, I had a group jumping lesson with some friends yesterday (Horseluver2435) and I was hoping you would critique me. Sonny is a 14 yr old Qurab gelding. We have been having some issues with him getting super lazy towards the smaller jumps considering we school 2'6-3'0. But im working loads at the 2ft level to work on my position. Have at it!
Got ahead in this one
And I know its hard to critique from the front but:
I have another hunter hack class Saturday so I want to go in and be perfect!
You look pretty good! The only advice I would offer is thinking about your shoulders. Just pretend there is an imaginary wall in back of you that you need to press the tips of your shoulders back onto. If you keep your shoulders back you'll be able to resists pulls, find better balance, and your arms and hands will be able to lighten up so you can get rid of those fists. Other then that, you look great, and so does your horse!
Looks good with a small tweak. If you photoshopped your body and rotated the whole thing about 5 degrees clockwise, your lower leg would come a bit forward under your center of gravity, your seat would hover just over the saddle where it should be, and your shoulders would come back a hair to where they'd be balanced over your feet. Also looks like a little knee pinching going on, so concentrate of hugging the horse with your lower leg and that might be enough to bring all your parts back into line.
