So these are about 2 months old. I saw these pictures and about wanted to jump off a cliff so HOPEFULLY i've improved a little. But regardless, here they are. I'll post some from about 4 months ago first, then the more 'recent ones' and let me know if theres any improvemets. There doesnt really seem to be which is kind of getting to me:
So, my release is horrible. I get it decent over one fence and it just falls apart in the next. Ugh.
Also, I jump super ahead. When I try and sit and wait, I end up with this:
Which is also just yucky.
Elbows need to come in and bend which I feel that I've corrected quite a bit, though I still slip up. They're at least not totally straight like they used to be.
Also, I have this terrible pornstar butt that I stick out everywhere I go...that doesnt seem to have improved. Ugh.
Critique and let me know some exercises to fix it?
Seriously losing confidence in this whole jumping nonsense.
I drive about an hour and a half each way to get to my lesson once a week (jumping) and then go out another day or two to do flat work. The only horse I have at home though is my barrel horse. Though, I'm trying to find some cheapo lessons closer.
