Jumping out of the Arena :)

I put this in English Riding, but I thought I'd see if I could get a critique! I've been working on XC with my pony and for one of the medal classes there was a course where you had to jump out of the arena and jump back in.. WELL I've never gotten footage of me and Leia jumping the log out of the arena until now!

The jump is roughly 2'3"-2'6" high and anywhere from 2'6"-3' wide. I have no idea . lol I know theres another part in the fence that is 2'6" from one side, but 3' from the other (uneven ground) but I don't have video of us jumping that. To be honest, I don't like jumping it cause it's kinda high and completely solid and I get nervous about her hitting it ><

Anyway! If you can I'd like a critique! I know its bad quality, so if you can work with it, I'd really appreciate it. I know you can see if she's balanced at least.


Here's the jump:

From what I can tell from the video she seems to be taking everything in stride, but I can't tell you anything specific about her legs, knees, or back though...

This is a little off topic but its been bothering me since I started posting videos. :p How do you get it so the box is big? Mine always comes out squished and small. :/

Nice horse, anyway. LOL.

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

I've got no critique, but why would they have a class like that? I wouldn't ever want my horse to have it in his head that jumping out of the arena was an option. That could seriously backfire during dressage!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Here is the url if you want to look at it larger:
Lela looks comfortable, maybe blase about it. I think she thinks she could handle larger than this. You look comfortable, as well. Was this a video made so that you can sell her, or did you just buy her? =/

she's currently for sale so i just put it in the title. I've jumped her up to 3' and she did that easily. This jump is roughly 2'6" high and somewhere around 3' wide.

I used to train at a pretty fancy barn outside of Ft Lauderdale Florida. They had a marvelous jump ring with incredible jumps in it. There was a section of the arena rail where you could jump out of the ring. There was an "outside course" and they would jump out of the ring as part of the outside course.
