Anyway, today I had a lot of fun with him. He was awesome, even though my riding was bad. But still, please critique it!
(Also, I added just some cute pictures of him).
Sorry if the pictures streches.
What a horrible landing on my part.
Here's a picture or two of me riding Dukat. He's an older Hanoverian gelding that is off, but if he's not ridden he will not get better (since he needs to get stronger) and didn't push jumping at all. He has a huge jump but was enjoying it. He's a cutie!
(That was in the middle of a W-C transition, and I realise that I'm very far forward!)
No release, eh? Poor guy.
After Dukat I rode Matt. He was awesome. He's (again) an older Hanoverian gelding that acts really young. He was having a lot of fun jumping, too. I don't know when the last time was that he saw the jumps. But he handled it well! Also, I know I'm really small on him and Dukat.
Things I know I need to work on.
- My leg position
- I need to straighten my back (we're really work HARD on that in my lessons)
- Chicken wings
- I can get ahead of the horse, too, but I'm working and trying as hard as I can. My trainer, too, is nailing that into my brain.
- WORK ON MY LANDING. God I hate it.
(By the way, that was only at looking at one picture)
Critique away. Be really hard.
Sorry about so many pictures!
Also (sorry about such a long post) I do not own any of these horses, but I get to ride them as much as I like. The only horse I'm planning to show is Sunny in hunters, and all hunter/jumper people - tell me what you think of him as a hunter.
