I've been riding for 12 years but recently switched from a 4H barn to a hunter/jumper barn as I want to learn to jump properly! This is after about a month and a half of lessons here, this is the third time I've ridden this horse. She makes me a little nervous as her stride and jump feel really big. So I'm trying my best to stay calm and relaxed when we jump.
I love my new trainer and trust her advice, but I would like to hear anyone's advice for relaxing while jumping and trusting that Anya (lesson horse) won't do anything wrong! Not to mention if there's anything glaring-ly wrong with my position!
Please don't critique the horse, she does not belong to me, I only ride her in lessons.
Hmm, I think that's about it. I welcome constructive criticism, but please don't rip me to shreds! I know I'm nowhere near perfect, not even close!
This was just a small schooling show at our barn, I did the crossrails class. I did win my equitation on the flat class and so I was pretty happy about that!
In the video, I am in the green polo, on the bay horse with back socks, star & stripe (:
Alright, I'll stop babbling now and let you guys work your magic. (:
