    Slowly but surely coming along... Jump Critique

    Twende and I have been working all summer on jumping. After almost 5 years [and four summers of showing], we finally showed in a jumping class in the spring and placed in our first ever jumping class. Once I finally got him going over the jumps, it was time to focus on my position... so these are our most recent pictures...

    We obviously have things to work on still, but I'm very happy with the progress we've made this summer. My leg is something I'm still working on. >.>

    Don't hunch over your horse so much. Bring your shoulders out, and your chest back. I'll critique more tomorrow

    You have closed your hip angle so much that it looks like you are going over Grand Prix sized fences. For the size of fence you are jumping, you do not need to go to this extreme. It ends up making you *snap* into position and then *snap* out of it. Your leg has slid back just a tiny bit, maybe bump your stirrup leathers up a hole. Your rein lengths are not the same in any of these....any reason? 2 of them you do not have any contact with your horses mouth and then the last one looks like you have just the right amount.

    It also looks like you guys are working hard to find the right take off distance to the fence as well....

    It looks like you are diving at the horse, you should just fold at the waist. For small jumps like those, you don't need to go as far over anyway.
