    jumping crituque

    I would love a jumping critique!
    Cisco(and I) have only been jumping since about January (he used to only be ridden western). I have been taking jumping lessons for about a month now using my trainers horse, then I come back to my horse, Cisco and try to implement what I learned the best that I can. I hope to ride over to my trainers barn soon, so I can have a jumping lesson on Cisco. So here we go, you can critique the both of us ..

    Very Cute horse! He looks like he's a good jumper from the picture. However, in the video his canter is very off, as if he was lame. I don't know if it is a western thing or what but i'd defiantly get it checked out and hopefully someone else can help figure it out :)
    As for you, I'd go up with your stirrups a whole when you jump because you are over jumping. Wait for the jump to come and let your horse jump for you. Your release is good because you are new to jumping but I would eventually pick up the slack in your reins. Also, make sure you are looking up and ahead and that you don't have "chicken wings!" I think that it is great that you are taking lessons. I have seen to many people on this forum who don't take lessons because they think they know it all - you never do! Unless a family member is actively involved you NEED lessons and I am so glad that you take them!

    Yes it does look like he might be lame, looking at his canter, like juju said. I forgot to put that in there lol.

    okay so i'm not going crazy! I noticed that too. I think its because I was in such a small ring, and I slowed him down to such a slow lope to approach the jump. He felt fine... and looked fine afterwords, so i'll check him out further tomorrow, he's never had any problem with lameness so that's weird. I'll put him in round pen tomorrow and put him through all gaits and check him out.

    Thank you for the other comments though

    Cute! I think he's "trantering" His front is cantering, but his hind is trotting. To avoid this, squeeze him forward before you slow him down and push him into your hands.

    You guys look great for beginner jumpers. I would try sitting back a bit more, and waiting fir him to leave the ground before two pointing. Keep up the good work

    Need to get your heel under your body and close your hip angle instead of opening overjumping.
