New Jumping Video

There is some candidness for like 6 seconds at the beginning that I threw in for giggles, but the rest is all riding. Also the last minute or so is just instant replay of my blooper, because I was having too much fun watching Fiona push herself up with her nose. Since we were both alright I am enjoying laughing at it.

If you don't like the music I apologize, I know not everyone has the same taste, just mute it :)

For hunters I'm not really sure I want as much critique as thats not really something I "do" I just enter if that's where my my barn is going. And with Fiona if you want her to be relaxed and huntery you just sorta sit and hold or push for strides and two-point.

As for the blooper it was all my error, and I know what went wrong, but as its in the video if you want to critique on it you can.

I have been trying to get out of crest release, so there is a mixture or crest and automatic in that video. Also for those of you who critiqued last time there is considerably less "skiing", as I took advice and took a lunge line lesson, although I haven't been able to take another since I think the one has helped immensely. Still planning on having more though.

Critique away :)

Remember to ride deep into your corner, you seemed to cut the first one out a bit.
You seem a little tense going around, try and take a deep breath.

Sorry, It's late, I'll come back later.

I also notice I lean really badly to the inside ><;;; With hunters I kinda forget your not supposed to cut the corners and I'm like "Look at all this space!"-cutcutcut-

I really don't have any critique, as I find you an absolutely fabulous rider and beyond my level of skill for critique. I just have to say that I absolutely ADORE that pony of yours, she's so cute and you can just see the bravery, honesty and trust in her. I absolutely love how in the blooper, she visibly THROWS herself up with her front end, obviously doing her best to save both of you. Maybe some people think it's silly, but I swear some horses just know. When my Arab mare is being silly, she'll throw some crowhops after a jump. Every once in awhile she catches me off guard and I get thrown onto her neck - there have been a couple times where I was staring at dirt from between her ears going "This is gonna hurt!" And every single time, she throws her head up at the last minute, popping me right back into the saddle and immediately stops crowhopping and waits for me to recover.

It just touched my heart knowing my mare isn't the only one who's watching out for her rider so well! And absolutely grand recovery, I think you sat that "blooper" extremely well, and really assisted her in getting back under herself.

She's an absolute dreamboat, hope to see a ton more videos from you guys!

I think you're coming along wonderfully! Look at your leg!! WOO HOO!

I am so thrilled you found improvement from working on the lunge line, I see it too :)

I love your tall upper body, I love your leg at the girth and your heels. But I do agree, you are tense in your seat. Remember to breathe. Your seat must move with your horses rhythm - it cannot be stiff or braced.

And sllooooooow dooooowwwwnnn. lol. You have a fantabulous mount under you who obviously really is trying hard for you and loves to do with you - so take your time.

Breeaatthhheeeeeee - lol. Relax chickey!

I love how you sit up tall to your fences, there are times where you ride the fence and not your mount, but then there are other times where you ride your mount and not the fence - allowing the jump to come and happen naturally.

With you becoming the passenger - totally can relate. It happens. Your amazing horse saved the both of you, I hope you gave her lots of praises and appologized. She is definately a keeper!

The both of you make a great team, and when you solidify what you need to get done, the two of you will be a tough team to beat!

No critique but fun video. I think I have motion sickness now from the first part of the video but still a fun. I envy you!

Thanks! I absolutely adore her! I was originally just leasing her because my boy is lame, but now I really want to buy her! I've been full leasing her since December and we've both seen a lot of improvement since then. So now I'm like "Hey mom&dad, you know I have a birthday in July..."

Yay! I'm very excited about it! I'm like "Heyheyhey, look at my leg!" to the most random strangers. I feel like I have to tell every one, lawl.

Tensing has been my problem with riding since day 1. I brace and tense my way to town, especially at shows, because I'm a bit nervous anyway. I like to say I sing my ABCs to calm down Fi, but it works wonders on both of us. Except when I'm in a flat class in the hunter ring, then I just get stared at, lawl. I'm going to have to be like "You are the jello, feel the jello, be the jello." I didn't get to canter on the lunge line, because the horse wasn't quite trustworthy yet with me with no reins and stirrups (not just dropped, taken off, both the reins and the stirrups were nonexistant), but hopefully I'll be able to get one soon :)

I have to think right before the fence "let horse close angle of hip" or else I half the time jump the fence and not the horse. It's what I get for reading to many critiques on this forum, I actually think to myself "do not jump the fence, jump the horse, let horse's jump close angle of hip", its pretty funny.

She got tons of hugs and kisses. I don't know if you can see it because of the camera angle but as we were going around the bend I was giving her shoulder pats with my right hand, which probably contributed to the leaning.

You need to use your outside hand more through the turns to support her. It'll help with the leaning issue, since it'll make her more balanced. It'll also protect her legs in the long run, since it'll make those tight corners less stressful.

She's a lovely girl, I love how well she takes care of you.

It may just be me but you look tense throughout the video.

The only thing that bothers me is that in the hunter class at the beginning, you need to keep your leg under you a little more.

Great job otherwise, and your pony is adorable and seems to take care of you well ;)
