Thanks, do you think my leg position would be any better if i upped my stirrups a hole? what can i do to fix it?
At the start of the video she was a bit spooky and being a butt cause the she spotted a deer across the river lol
I'm also not sure about the landings, like i watch it back and compare it to other video's of people who know what they're doing and its all so smooth, whereas i'm pretty messy, and a few times whisks caught me off guard and sorta left me behind.
It's hard for me to tell from the video -- Eventually, yes you do want a shorter stirrup, however, doing so may throw you off balance even more at this stage.
Can you stand in the saddle? If no, definitely raise them.
Here is a good representation of two-point/half seat position
Heals down. Back strait. You need to find your point of balance on your horse (It looks like jumping comes naturally to you) but you just have some rough edges so to speak lol You have good release which is surprising because normally people are the opposite in my experience!
Anyway, another tip to help keep your back strait is flex your diaphragm. This will help your back from hollowing out and keep you from falling forward when you land.
She is leaving you behind at times, but I associate this with you asking too much of her. She looks a bit nervous going into the jump. Even though she is willing to do it, consider dialing it down a notch so that she does not rush through the motions because it can become a habit that is also throwing you off.
If YOU know your postion is off you can't expect HER to feel comfortable because she feels EVERYTHING you are doing.
I would set up ground poles if you have them available and make her TROT several times before cantering. Do some half halts too. Maybe even trot to the jump, then ask her to walk over it so she is paying attention to you. This will also benefit your position too.
EVENTUALLY IT WILL ALL COME TOGETHER :)
But seriously, Youtube everything! If don't have access to a trainer opt for a virtual one instead -- Youtube taught me geometry and how to half halt lol
Good luck !
