    Hello Everyone..

    What do you think of my new horse?.. 6 year old paint horse. He's used for english and western pleasure. I got him at the end of Oct.2008.

    This is me jumping him for the first time.

    Just overall, working on getting more weight in your heels and be careful you don't pinch with your knees. Over the fence try to give him a bigger release and don't jump ahead of him, sit back a little more and weight for him your jumping a little up his neck. On the flat keep your thumbs up! And make sure you keep your heel consistence, your upper body looks good!

    Gorgeous horse. Mine has a lot of white too. Rubbing alcohol and Quic Silver are my best friends for keeping him clean.


    In your jumping picture, you are WAY ahead of him. Shorten your stirrups a hole or so, and put your weight in your heels. On the approach, stay in something of a three-point or so, and WAIT for him to jump, don't try to jump for him. He should be carrying you. By staying slightly back in a three point, but still out of the saddle, you shouldn't have a problem getting off his back over the jump, but it will help you to keep from getting ahead of him and anticipating his jump. The shorter stirrup and putting weight into your heels will give you a more secure leg and will help you better balance yourself so you don't have to reach and lean on his neck quite so much.
