Smile My jumper-Critique!

Hello! This is my jumper Kickstart My Heart also known as Zorro. I bought him a year ago as my fox hunter/Jumper. He is amazing. Here is us in a lesson at the "Flying Cow". Nothing speedy in the video. Maybe I'll get a video us at a speed round at a show.

i noticed 2 things, your toes should be pointed up more, and you have an arch in your back try sucking in to aliminate the arch;)

p.s you are a great jumper;)

Rising. My trainer doesnt like sitting it. She believes that even though I am a jumper there is no excuse loosing eq. (I know my isnt best lol ) She thinks with good eq. comes a good horse.

Awesome pair! He looks like he would be a dream out in the field!

The only thing I want to comment on is to keep your thumbs on top. You're not interfering with your horse at all, but as far as equitation goes if you at least keep your thumbs facing upwards, (you don't even have to really close them) your wrists will be straighter, and in effect you'll have a better line of contact through your elbows.

I hope that helps! And like I said, you guys look great together!

One thing I noticed is that you really pump your upper body over the jump - let the horse come up to you, you don't have to scoop down towards his neck. When you move too much, you can interfere with the natural movement of your horses back and shoulder.
Overall you are a very nice rider, keep up the good work, and just keep in mind the suggestions from the other members as well.

I agree with JDI. I think you guys would benefit with more impulsion. Not necessarily faster, but more powerful if you know what I mean. Getting his butt underneath him and making his front end light will help him lift up to the jump better.

overall very nice!
