    Hahaha. Glad I wasn't the only person seeing it Unreal!


    Emerald... Not really correcting you, just explaining why. :) When you first learn to jump, it seems better to have less contact, since you are more likely to pop your horse in the mouth. If Unreal was doing that at the 1 meter level, it wouldn't be a pretty sight, and could potentially hurt herself, and or her horse.

    Well either way, thanks; I learned something new today. I'll keep that in mind, since I'm slowly starting to do higher jumps (not close to 1 meter yet though :P) and getting a good release is a good habit to get into.

    Have you jumped Cally up before? She looks a teeny bit unimpressed by the fences (height wise). She tends to hang a leg here and there while Chick is pretty consistent with being square in front.

    Back when I was winging things we did a grid up to 3ft9. He's been supposidly schooled to 4ft3 by the previous owners. How high do you think I'll be able to show him? I think we'll be good for the 1.10m, but I want a second opinion!

    Chick is naturally a wonderful jumper! Since day one of being schooled over fences, she's been like that!

    I would try free jumping Cally first... but I do see more scope there for sure. My meter thirty jumper would always hang a leg over the smaller stuff. And he would simply skim the rails with his back legs. It was never until we got over anything above 3'9" that he would actually tuck tight, square up in front, and push off evenly from behind.

    You said that the first few pictures were 3 ft equitation, if that is so, you should not be using a square saddle pad in equitation classes. Just a suggestion for next time!
    Your position looks good, but you are hunching and it looks almost like you are not going with your horse very well in some of the pictures. Also, I also noticed that your stirrups look a little short, but maybe I am wrong.
    Other than that you look awesome and you have a very solid leg! Good luck and congrats on winning the eq!! Keep showing :)

    It was a fair so there really weren't any tack restrictions, which is why I didn't just have a fitted pad. Weirdly enough they wouldn't let me wear a polo on jumper day though..
