Awhile back, I asked for a critique on my riding as far as my jumping. I posted some pictures and got some great feedback. This video is from my jumping lesson a week ago. It was a pretty good lesson (as far as Enzo - he was so perfect) and we were able to work on my riding. It was swelteringly hot and so you can see we both got a little lazy at times Here's what I notice I do wrong - jump ahead sometimes, need to work on my release still, tiny roach in my back at some points, noticed I need to turn off my legs and seat more than I do... probably lots more.
Anyway, here is the video. At the end there are still shots for you to look at. Feel free to search through my youtube channel as well (this video is on my youtube channel) to see how far we've come so far.
And for a little Enzo update, for any of you that read about his little ground manners problem, he has gotten so much better! I've had a little bit of help, but most of it has just be repitition and sharp sounds/body language. It's remarkable how much better he's gotten after just a few days of work.
But on a sad note, he's had a bit of hoof troubles. He's been throwing shoes left and right lately, so we've trying to figure out what to do. A new farrier came out to look and has an idea that might help. But unfortunately, he thinks that Enzo has probably foundered at some point in his life (before I got him)
And I would love to get a critique of my dressage riding too! I have a lesson tomorrow and will try to get some current footage of my dressage, which I will then post on this thread.
Thanks in advanced!
