    Jumping critique

    Fell free to rip us both apart... Would be curious to hear (from professionals here) if the paint could make a good jumper (my qh can NOT jump really lol!).

    I jump her occasionally a little just to do something different from the flat work. Trying to find instructor at the moment for jumping, but so far no success (because of my schedule).

    She is a cutie! I'm not a professional jumper, so no help there.

    Thanks, gigem! She's definitely trying. When I tried to jump my qh last year (couple times were enough for us both), she didn't jump but rather climbed over the cross-rails. That was a shame!

    You were jumping? I was too distracted by her face markings :)

    I'm not versed enough to really critique you but I think you look well balanced & she looks honest.

    I like her! (: Sorry, that's not super helpful I just wanted to say she's cute! You both look really chill and relaxed over the jumps. I'm sure she would do fine for jumping- it all depends on how high you want to go!

    Oh....I really like her!
    She doesn't need to be tidy with her knees over such a small jump, but she is anyway. I love her calm approach, her alert expression, the effort she makes, and the calm way she exits the jump. YES!! She Can jump!

    What is her breeding? Will you go H/J or event?

    I love your paint.
    The only thing I noticed in both vids is that you look down at something about one stride after the landing on the back side. Maybe checking if you're on the correct lead?

    Yes, you are very right. I noticed it too (I looked down, I know it's a big no-no).

    Lol! Thanks, Allison! She doesn't have jumpers, but she has racers in her lines (Top Moon on top and Painted Joe on bottom). She indeed is very fast (and very hot).

    I WISH I could event, but I'm not brave enough for XC. So I take dressage lessons with her now (along with my qh), and want to do just jumping (may be up to 3 feet if we are both capable). But I'm looking for eventing instructor, because dressage is part of eventing and good instructor takes it seriously too. I have 2 trainers in mind, so will see if we can work out something with one of them.
