    Need to know what this mare would be good at please

    Hi!! So I bought Ky (my mare) two years ago for barrel racing which she was trained for and even was winning some jackpots. When I got her I rode her bareback and wanted something to do besides go around a barrel. Sort of a mind refresher. So my aunt had some jumps set up at small cross rails and I went over those. Least to say she loved to jump and here I am now wanting to get into it again. ( jumped for a lady 3-4 years ago at a horse farm) What do you think she would be good at and how's my riding? Open to any and all criticism!! Thanks!! :)

    This is over 2'9". First time to ever jump a real jump. I've just jumped plastic barrels with PVC pipe.

    Def looks like a jumper to me. Not quite a nice enough mover for hunters. You can tell that she loves to jump around, that's for sure. I would say, for you to be mindful of where your hands are. Most of the time you're riding around with them buried in the pommel of your saddle. Pick your hands up.

    I would say pick your hands up, slide your legs back a tiny bit and bring your shoulders back. I would also try to remember to sit more on your seat bones and try to slow down the entering trot a tiny bit! I think she would make a great little equitation horse or with a bit of training maybe even a hunter. Has a decent amount of scope, very cute mover! And I would try to work on her leads off the jumps and some lead changes since she had them wrong at times!

    The horse looks like a good jumper at the moment, need to work a bit with kick of points etc, but that comes with time - she cleared all though, I think she hit one, but it stayed on.

    I saw a rushed trot - need to work with that a bit more, but I guess first show - lots of nerves and adrenaline, hard to be calm. Canter - good, should sit down a bit more not just run the whole course in hunters seat, easier to control the horse and help it. Plus the fact that once you start jumping higher, the horse needs you to be sitting before the jump and then jump with it - if you are on a hunters seat all the time, your weight is more forwards and it is harder for the horse to take off - I had one horse I was training with who was very sensitive on the weight - if I jumped before him, he droped his forelegs, if I didnt get out of the saddle enough, his hind dropped.. he would jump clear mainly only if I got it right.

    And as said before, think about your hands and working with lead changes, and later smaller curves to get to the next jump. Not too small, but not that huge either :)
