    Whoaa D:


    See how I lost my balance over the jump?
    That's never happened to me before D:
    Did he do a mini buck or something and I didn't see it?
    He did have a huge bucking fest as soon as we landed.
    Seriously he bucked at least 5 times, then I flew off, then he ran away bucking.
    What happened over this jump?! :/ I think he did a small buck thing and that's why I lost my balance

    I don't see any buck. Would be easier to tell what happened if we could see the approach though

    Your feet are way to far into your stirrups.

    Looks like you ducked over the fence & banged on his back pretty hard. That's why he bucked.

    Ah, I didn't even think of that! Now that you mention it, that's what it looks like!
    Thank you! :)

    Okay.. your jumping position has to start with a really steady, strong base of support - your leg. Your leg is not solid, so it slipped forwards on approach when you got left behind. Things snowballed from there, you landed heavy in the saddle, maybe your horse is slightly back-sore, or the saddle doesn't quite fit, so the landing was a little rough and he blew up bucking?

    Thanks ally! :) I think that's what happened. I landed on his back too hard and he flipped.
    I need to work on my leg a LOTTT. Haha

    My opinion is the fact that when you slam down on his back, you also catch his mouth a lot. That combined with slamming on his back, will make him blow up pretty bad.
