    the video is REALLY bad but can anyone tell me...

    ...why I keep ducking on the getaway stride? It's like... I land really well and nice and solid, but then my upper body just falls as we go to canter away.

    You can't see a lot but if there's any critique I want to hear it. Please and thankyou :)



    That fence is about... 3'4" high, no idea how wide but it's wider than it is tall. I got him in a bit close, I know, that's why he took the front rail. He did clear it the time before but I didn't get that time on video.

    By the way we can do this height and higher in one-stride doubles that are distanced for ponies [making it more of a half-stride, he never bounces them when they're that big] with never an issue. I don't have enough jumps to train courses but I regularly train course elements.

    We're jumping in a snaffle now [still want him in the pelham when we're out though, he's very strong at shows/pony club]

    I have a jumping lesson in 8 days, will keep you posted on how that goes but I probably won't have video.

    Core strength. A weak core will keep you from being able to sit back up. Possible also because you're pinching and pivoting forward off of our knee, you also look a bit hunch backed...

    Yep. FB links are not allowed. You'll have to upload to YT.

    I peeked at the video and honestly, the quality is beyond what I could make even a wildly imaginative critique from. I'd recommend you revideo anohter day and make it worth your and our while to be of a decent quality.
    My 2 cents.

    I just can't jump again between now and the lesson, or he'll be an eejit. Unfortunately that's the best I can do quality-wise unless I take out my camera and for some reason my folks refuse to use my camera and will only video using my phone :/

    I freezeframed the video a few times watching it back and got these, I know they're really blurry and awful but this is what I have for now. I'm going to take my camera [which takes GOOD videos, not like the blurry ick that my phone takes!] to my lesson/pony club camp and see if I can find someone who'll film for me but no guarantees.

    That shows the problem quite well. Now I think you'll be able to get a good critique.

    It looks to me like you're too far forward initially, your center of gravity is in front of the saddle, it almost looks like you're sitting down too early and as a result are getting bumped forward out of the saddle, thrown forward and (again core strength!) can't catch yourself.

    ^exactly.

    If it were me I would be sitting where you're getting bumped out of the saddle.. when your horses fore legs touch the ground you should be in 2pt still and sitting when all 4s hit the ground to avoid the bump out.

    Thanks guys :) much appreciated. I will ask the jumping coach to tell me off if I come back too early. I don't think I do but then, my feel has been known to be wrong. I just know that I can't feel the saddle against my butt at any point over the fence and I usually stay up for the getaway stride so I don't accidentally jab him in the mouth on landing.

    How's my actual two-point position? Do I need to work on that more or is it ok? Do you think if I can get this landing issue licked I'm ready to go a bit higher?

    Im way too lazy for english ridin now that I've gotten older-- but your 2pt does look a smidge high to me.

    As I remember 2pt should be high enough so your legs act as a shock obsorber but low enough to feel the burning sensation in your quads, lol.

    I definitely feel the burn! Hahaha I'm always so sore after a good jumping session. In a good way. Abs, thighs [outer and front], a little bit in my back.
