Please do a jumping critique of Eddie jumping 3'9".

This is Eddie, my 6 y/o Hanoverian Gelding. He is showing in the 2nd year greens (3'9") and the Junior Hunters (3'6"). Please tell me what you think of him, and his form, but please do not critique the riders because they are not me!







Sorry for so many pictures, but please let me know what you think!

I don't usually have a good eye for critique, but he looks like he has a beautiful form over the fences. Hes quite a looker as well :]

your jumping

When you go over a fence make sure you don't lay on his neck, it would cause him to knock the rials in the front legs as he has got your weight on his front legs.
And keep your legs under your self!! That will make him go froward better!

How old is he? He may have a future in front of him!
Also if you lift your hands he will look up and won't jump so flat.
I am not putting you down, but if you take my advice you will do well with your horse!!
The picture below might help you, it is my daughter....

He's lovely. =]
He looks to use his shoulder quite well, but could do good to get his feet tucked up a bit more, in some of the pics he looks like he's hanging them a bit..but he has his forelegs very even and looks as if the fences are absolutely nothing to him!
Very nice. =D

I love him!! What's his show name?? I may be seeing you in juniors next year!


Eventer Gal:
Most hunter riders "lay" on there horses neck, and it usually doesn't affect there jump. You want to be one with the horse in hunters, it's not like jumpers. You don't want to stick out to much in hunters. By the way thats a great picture of your daughter.

Very nice. He has got a boof head and a thick neck but thats probably just his breeding right?

I would agree that you may want to be careful about him tucking his feet up properly and he is a tad flat although that is usually a rider thing more than a horse thing. You may want to free jump him a bit to make sure and develop form a bit more though - he could go quite a way as he definitely doesn't seem bothered by those fences! BTW Have you got any pictures of him on the descent?
