    You are right, riding a horse with a strong bascule is very tough. The one thing that your trainer says that I might want to amend, when a horse hits the rail with his hind end, it is even MORE often the riders fault. Many riders sit back too soon over the top of the jump. This will often help to "push' the haunch down. The horse will feel this and drop the hind legs. That, and a horse jumping really flat, are the two most common reasons a horse hits with their hind legs.

    Relax those knees and allow the knees to flex a bit more. They also add to the "shock absorber" effect of the leg.

    You are doing really well and I think you two will go far. Just keep up the good work. Too bad you're not in NC.....
