Sorry if my msg earlier seemed odd. My dad went in for emerg. Surgery on Wed. Anyway...
So lesson yesterday ( shouldn't have rode ) went on about collecting my horse and having her pat the ground at the base of the jump. So what you guys are saying but the big issue going on is that I"m letting my horse kind of run threw my hands. ( Plow threw the jumps ) It may look like I have a hold on her but really its extreamly light. Reason for why the 6 didn't work and I let her get too close to the base of the jump.
So heres my question, I enjoy both of your critiques but we don't have gymnastics set up- I really wish we did I know how great it would be for my "feel" and to get my horse working from behind. But without those, what can I be doing to help myself and my horse get around the course more efficantly? My horse is by no means -RUNNING- threw me like you would usually think of a horse doing that but it's just enough that it makes it hard for me to bring her back without loosing the forward and that she runs past the proper distance.
Any tips and "how to" would be great, I don't mind being told what I'm doing wrong but I like to know how I can fix these things
