How about a Jumping Form Critique?(video)

Ya... NOT ME.

Not what you thought HUH!? was kinda of awkward for me to watch personally... I probably would have left the arena if I saw that kind of thing.

I am worried about the conformation here. Talk about being built downhill! Also, the person has a badly roached back and I think it would be hard to find a saddle that will be a good fit. That back looks a little weak and I suspect it would not support a rider's weight.

The person maintains a decent pace through the jumps, but I detected a slight lameness behind.

She also occasionally hangs her front elbows over the jump. While we see her freejumping here, I would not put her over any fixed XC type jumps. Her tendency to hang in front may cause a bad flip on an XC course.

She seems to have a great attitude over the jumps and may be suitable for low level hunters.

Sadly, due to her downhill conformation, I would not consider her a good broodmare prospect.

Weird, but funny. That can't be an easy thing to do. I wonder how long she's been doing this. And I would have loved to have been there for the conversation that resulted in trying this.

Don't worry VanillaBean we're not judging you. You probably could have gone GrandPrix! ;) as for The conversation that started this,it probably went something like "i'm going to jump it! *jumps it regular two legged style" " HAHA EASY!...jump it like a a canter... on all fours..." the result : we just saw it . Lol
