SJ Rally

This is me and my pony at SJ Rally for our Pony Club this past weekend. This is our equitation round. I'm going to say it now : This was definitely not our best day. I know I was leaning forward pretty badly, I usually don't do that but I was sooooooo tired. Well, anyway, could you please judge us??

Thank you!!!! :)

Not bad... what level are you riding?

Some things you may want to work on is a nice forward pace through out the whole course. I had this urge to run out there and chase you around with a crop... especially a stride or so before the fence. The ones you jumped really nicely were the ones you rode right to the base, actively asking your horse to step forward. When you actively ride you don't hop up on your horse's neck and cause him to chip.

Your position in whole is pretty good, you have a decent leg and are releasing appropriately for this level. After the last fence, did your saddle slip? I swore it looked like one leg was 4 or five holes shorter than the other.

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong

I am trying to move up to BN. Usually I ride with a crop, but being me I forgot to pack one for this show. I just looked at the video again, and my saddle definitely did slip... a lot. For that show they wouldn't let me ride with my half-pad and my saddle was all over the place.

Thank you so much! :)

Some days Pony Club has me scratching my head at their weird rules. We generally have the manager or coach (if your at the level that they are allowed) always carrying a crop at the in-gate for just that purpose. LOL
