Grr, computer ate my post.
I got our lesson on video today; it's our second with the new trainer and my third ever. This is Excel, who many of you know; 7-yr old OTTB who I've had off the track for a year and a half. This is our first time jumping in a while....we did a lot of transition work (flatwork not filmed) to get him off the forehand so he wasn't so prone to falling over jumps. My trainer also mentioned something interesting; she said that when I ask for a halt, I sit too deeply for him. She said that it would be great if I was on a finished dressage horse, but that Excel hasn't developed the muscles yet for me to sit so deeply when I ask for a halt. Thought that was interesting. We had a great jump from canter, perfect distances, to that last vertical, but my mom didn't film it . Anyway, critique away!
