So I haven't had jumping lessons in I believe over a year. Finances are being very kind to me so I decided to get back into it with the lessons. Yay!
First off...I probably shouldn't have picked such a forward horse for my first time back because I spent a lot of my concentration on keeping him slowed down and controlled. (At the end you can see me trying to hold him back but he speeds over the jumps like a bat out of heck.)
Also the saddle was a tad small but the size I should have been riding in was off for repairs.
I had a great time and I'm so excited to have lessons again.
I am just looking for what I can improve. I know it's going to be a TON of stuff. I know I am not the best rider, I'm actually probably the worst around ~sigh~
Anything nasty, like "You're a horrible rider, quit while you're ahead" will be ignored. I already have huge confidence problems and I don't need anymore.
HOWEVER constructive, kindly put criticism with ways to help improvement will be welcomed with open arms!!!
(Also in the beginning of the video with the first clip we found out the jumps were not aligned haha...fixed that quick.) And the ending was thrown in just for laughs not critique.
Thank you in advance. Also I had the original clip and the right after I slowed down each clip so it could be viewed easier.
Also if you could include times at when the video is for the part wehre you are doing the critique that would be awesome!
Here we go ~gulps~
