Jumping Green. Judge Eq and Horse

Ok this is a green horse a my barn and her name is Gossip. She is pure quarter horse. I don't like her at all! She is just awkward feeling. And she cow jumps and doesn't steer very well either. But I want your critique on her. I know my eq is horrible! Its because I was concentrating on getting her over the jumps and I was scared out of my brains. Well have fun!








This was a huge dear jump as we call it. It was horrible

First off, I love Razz's face in the first pic. Second, I dread the day I have to ride her.

BUT critique on her... she cow jumps, not too athletic... she needs to get in shape lol and she 'scissors' her knees in a few of these and her knees are too low in others. I think she really uses her back end which will be good later when she's actually not horrible at jumping. I think your eq is great, considering the horse ;D the 'dear jump' one was the one we all giggled at where you got a bit off balance. Besides that, your release is good, your heels are down, your leg slips back sometimes, causing you to go a little too forward but all in all I'm jealous of your eq :)

Doesn't seem very scopey to me. Looks to jump a bit flat as well. Second shot from the bottom her front legs are nice and square. Your Eq isn't terrible by the way. It looks like you have a very secure leg.
How big have you jumped her? She seems very unimpressed by the whole endeavor. Haha!

Other than what the others have already mentioned, you are way too much out of the saddle. Your lower half should stay behind the pommel of the saddle, it will look more professional. Also, keep your diaphragm up, as it is almost on the horse.

Wow, is it just me or is her butt huge? O.o"
I agree with the first poster completely.
I'd be terrified to jump that horse that high, I'll stick to my psycho Arab jumping 18" & him going 2'6.

Haha well
Her butt is huge. And yes I was terrified but had to do it or get yelled at.

What exactly is cow jumping? The only thing I see is she seems to like to take off long. Maybe some grid work would help improve her form and use herself better over the fences?

cow jumping is like taking off with all four feet. That's what we call it.

Oh well that sounds like tons of fun...kind of like a spinal tap. In that case, you Eq is fantastic.

I really don't see the cow jumping, honestly...she's just not all that scopey, and takes off either too long or too short...I've seen horses literally take off with all four legs off the ground, and it does not look like her...hahahaha; I'd say she just does as minimal work as she needs to to get over the jump which makes her feel so hard over the jumps...she probably feels like she's going to run out at any given moment too, making her eventual jump rough because she doesn't want to take them.

Over all, you look okay given how hard you probably have to ride this horse at each jump.
