Jumping :D

Ok welll I havn't posted any photos since my 'critique my bareback jumping thread' because yea... lets all admit it... I SUCKED lol.
But I do believe I have improved a lot since then :)

And UGH I just realised that my computers being stupid and not letting me upload any pictures but I do have a few pictures of me riding on my deviantart account :)

Thanks everyone, peace out :P

Marlea, you didn't suck. Heck, most of my own pics in past are quite embarrassing I have to say. I want to say NEVER be ashamed to share what you do and ask for opinions on how to improve it. Noone can do things correctly right away. It takes time, practice, and help (yes, and critique too sometime ).

I tried to find the pics on site you posted, but without success. Do you have links directly to the pics by any chance?

I'm not a greatest at the critique (since I'm a beginner jumper myself lol!), but you have to look more up. Looks like pretty big jump to me!

Hehe yea I'm always getting told that, and it was the biggest jump I've ever jumped

It looks like you are pinching with your knee and causinf your lower leg to slide back. It's hard to tell from the angle though.

True, I think I might of been doing that.

Don't be so tough on yourself. No one here was a born superstar... I call shenanigans to whoever says otherwise. You learn from your failures (even if they are epic.... which they aren't).

Reasons they're not epic-

Your not hitting your horse in the mouth or back.
You didn't fall off.

Things to learn from-
Eyes up!!! You go where you look, I don't think you want to be on the ground. Focus on a point in the distance as you come down the line.

Allow your ankles/knees/hips to absorb the shock of the jump. Ride in a 2 point and don't move over the fence. Let your horses jump close your hip angle and squat down over the fence, not stand up.

On a different note... love the homemade jump.... very good use of random stuff.

I'm no expert, but I would shorten your stirrups, as you look like you are reaching for them right now. It's a hard picture to critique because you are already landing. Keep working! Always look for things to improve upon. By the way- is your saddle sliding forward? It may just be the angle of the picture but it looks like it has slipped. Your pony is very cute.
