Leia Jumping 11/24/11

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Leia has been so good lately. :) I'm really happy with her.

If you could, critique us both please! I'm the rider in the red shirt, so don't critique the rider in the white shirt ;D

Keep in mind she's been worked twice in two weeks x[ and I haven't had a trainer since march..


screenshots:








I think she's due for some serious dressage and gymnastic lessons..

She's very willing, doesn't take much leg to get her going around a course. :) I need a lot more work and most of her faults are caused by me, but I'm very proud of how far she's come this year.

If you didn't want the rider in the white shirt critiqued then why did you post a video and pictures of just her?

I have a video and pictures of me (red shirt) too. And I want the main focus to be on the pony, but you can critique me as well.

I'm not 100% but over some of the jumps it doesn't look like you give her quite enough release in the video. Apart from that you both look good :)

The main thing is...you have no energy..she seems like she is sleeping through the whole course. You need to wake her up and get her enthused about jumping.

As for you, you need to do a lot of 2-point work. You are very loose in the tack. You are also relying too much on your upper body to stay balanced. Your heals are up, and your legs are all over the place. Your upper body and lower body need to be independent of each other. If you jumped those jumps with no hands you would topple over. You are also jumping ahead and not getting correct spots. I think that has to do with you being too loose.

You should be practicing your 2-point every single time you get on a horse also try not to balance on the horses neck while your in your 2-point. Do your 2-point at all three gaits. That way you will become more secure in the tack and you won't have to rely on your upper body to keep you balanced.

Your horse is a very willing jumper, and she has a nice form. Good luck!
