Hiya as thoose who in (i had another one up that was dressage critque) I mainly do dressage and eventing and the odd bit of straight sjing but I have only just started jumping over a metre and that's because I had a lack of confidence after a few rough falls but I would like some critque on my jumping
* please note I am only 13
Me and my sisters showjumper first ode
Me and my mums horse (she jumps like a dizzy cricket lol)
Thaks alot of people say that but I have always had the looking down prob I always try but I get really nervous forget to breath and evrythig just sort of disappears lol and sometimes it just so happens to be the course but my sisters horse has down alot to help as she is no longer riding him due to work commitments so I ride and compete him and I have to hold on and look ahead to keep up as he learns courses pretty quickly!!
From what I can see you need to point ur toes in so that they are pointing forward and are parallel with the horses body and fold over ur horse a little more when ur taking off because you look like ur standing up in the saddle and make sure to keep ur elbows in.
Other than that you r doing great, hope this helps!
Very cute horses!
The thing that stands out most to me is that you're heels have come up in almost all the pictures except for the one on your mom's horse. This is because your stirrup is atleast 1 or 2 holes too short. Once you shorten those stirrups, you won't have to reach for them. This will create a steadier leg and you will be able to stretch into your heels.
In the picture of you on your horse, you are looking down.
Other than that, you're jumping position is very nice. I really like your releases. Keep up the good work.
Oh the one on my horse was I was grumpy with him as he is very hard too jump because if he wants to he charges and pullls ( hence the pelham and myler combitnation) but if he doesnt you just can't seem too make him he just ignores you not matter what and just seems too shut down!!!
So that was the last round at 90 (he can jump 1m beauifully if he wants) and he had gotten me eliminated the two previous rounds so I got very grumpy and put and spurs which he hates and made him jump evertything which he did do beautifully except for the odd twist here and there but as I got over no. 9 ( th last jump) he took off and jump out of the arena one stride then over the electric fence I couldnt stop so had to run him nto the back of the judges truck!!! he scared the living daylights out of me but I was happy he did it :) but he was perfect the weekend after at the showjumping lesson with edward bullock :roll: of course
