    I can collect her easily on the flat, and she had a wonderful, rounded, canter, until we jump. I didn't jump today, but I'll definitely keep y'all s help in mind.

    I edited it so that it plays the jump again in slow motion.

    I know it's difficult without a saddle, but try to stay in 2-point position a little longer after you take off. Other than that I'm really impressed!

    Ok, I took Matilda to a cross-country course, but I only got pics of their stadium jumps. Tear me to shreds. I'm mortified by my landings and toes, any advice would be great. There are a ton, but most are frame by frame pics.

    Having issues, they may come a few at a time. Or one. Thanks guys!

    Ok, just wanted to add, the jumps were just randomly placed, so some have awkward angles...

    Also, she didn't rush, not once. In fact, I had to push her to keep her canter, I thiink it was because there was more than one jump, so she couldn't focus on just the one for too long.

    This is Turner jumping. She doesn't like jumping very much, but I wanted to build her confidence. Ignore the other kids, they came out to ride for the day.

    Ok, here are the videos from the course. Ignore the white jump with poles in front of it. She went over it once, then, never again.

    I strongly suggest you stop jumping in a Western saddle, the shape of the saddle keeps you from being able to stay close to the tack- your upper body is way up in the air, and in a couple of pictures you look like you're inches away from gutting yourself. The stirrups do your legs no favours, letting them swing back too much. And notice how your center of gravity is pushed way back against the cantle of the saddle OR bumped way forward? It also keeps from distributing the shock of landing properly over your horses back- because it wasn't designed for jumping- and can cause problems in the long run.

    You need to bring your elbows in a little, relax through your shoulders to keep from 'hunching' and get your feet forward in the stirrup so the stirrup isn't on the arch of your foot. Hold your position sitting in the saddle, shoulders back, eyes up, until your horse jumping pushes you up and out of the tack instead of jumping ahead.
