    Riding critique

    Okay so today we worked on a lot of stuff even trot poles two-point etc. We did a few X-rails. I haven't jumped in a very long time nor have I jumped on her.
    So don't be to hard on me. :)

    But do please tell me what I have fixed and what I need to fix still. I still need to fix my hands and maybe bring my leg more back,

    It's hard to tell but it looks like you're leaning really far forward

    My coach wasn't around she was in a lesson teaching and I had help from this girl was like 13 maybe. It was super dusty and bright outside so the Martingale looked right from a distance but its connected to the throat latch instead.

    I was about to say...Martingale attached to a nose band??...The reins would be more appropriate..and then I realised you have a standing martingale on her...personally I think jumping in a standing martingale is a bad idea and can sometimes be dangerous should the mare stumble you would be better using a running martingale....does she throw her head up..?...just wondered why the standing martingale...?..
    Good for you for getting back into jumping...its good fun..x

    Not really but I haven't ridden her much. I mean she throws her head yes but I dunno why she uses a standing I am very new with them.

    Ok I don't do jumping so I'm not going to comment on the actual jumping photo. I'll comment on the 1st photo though.

    You need to sit up more, bring your shoulder blades back and together (or as my instructor used to say, burst your bra!)

    You also need to open up your hips and turn your toe inwards (doing the former will result in the latter happening automaticly)

    You also need to pick your hands up and carry them yourself, this will result in a bit more bend in your elbow and will help you to not tip forward.

    Okay thank-you :)

    An please no more critiques on the whole martingale I know what hapend and I know I didnt notice it and neither did my trainer it was a BIG mistake it was an honest mistake it can happen sometimes.

    So no critiques on that.

    Unfortunately nowdays equipment is used for the sake of using it...the sole purpose of a standing martingale is to stop the horse from throwing its head up high and smacking the rider in the face/nose/head....they shouldnt be used to pull in a head carriage or encourage acceptance of the bit....if she has a seriously bad habit of doing this then yes she warrants a standing martingale...if she doesnt toss her head high or too often then the flexability of a running martingale may be more appropriate...they are not so restrictive...and in my opinion less dangerous ...x
