    What do you think of my mare jumping tec?


    Im a newbie on here!! Would like to know what you guys think of my mare jumping styles please?
    Here a bit info about her, she's rising 6yo welsh cob x, 15.1hh. Done Sj, Sh, Ode up to 75cm but schools over sj course of 85cm at home. I don't do too much jumping over 80cm tho due her age at the moment.
    My plans for her are Show hunter, hunter rounds, Sj in summer before grounds gets too hard.
    She is my baby girl so please be bit nice but honset please.
    However she does tuck her legs up heaps more over bigger jumps as she just finds the smaller ones too "easy" so she just goes POP over them lol.

    Thanks guys

    So here some photos :) Hope this works!!!

    -no english expert, but here we go-

    Overall, I like your mare. It seems like she tucks up her feet nice and really goes over the jump.
    On the third picture is almost looks like she jumped a little to early, but I could be wrong.

    As for yourself, I would say more release with your hands a bit higher. Maybe also stay deeper in the tack, flow with the horse, let her lift you out and don't lift out yourself.

    Very cute mare!

    Wow! You have an amazing horse! She REALLY tucks her front legs, and seems to really love jumping. I noticed that most of what you do with her is jumping. You might want to start dressage with her, also, because it would improve her balance and adjustability within the paces. Do you only do jumps of this height, or do you do small gymnastics also? If you don't do small gymnastics, you might want to ride her over those, also. If you do already do dressage and gymnastics, ignore my comment :).

    Your mare is almost a picture perfect jumper. She has nice even knees but could be a little more tidy beneath. She looks like she'd make a great hunter as well as eventer.

    Let me say it im so jealous. My gelding it the complete opposite of her. Pluto is my main jumper but he doesnt tuck like that. I wish he does more of the superman thing. But yeah she got great form. If she goes missin in the moring then you'll know who took her :P As for you. There are some things you may want to work on

    Goooood ! She's very good she tucks her legs under and is square, on the third picture she's kind of uneven give me leg on the other side to keep her straight.
    But other then that she's great plus that's our cross country color too burgendy yeah lookin' good!
