Talking Cross Country Video Montage

Some of you have already seen parts of these clips in my other "cross country" thread, but I put all of the clips from that day together and set it to music in this video montage of our first cross country experience

For those who don't already know...This was our first experience with a cross country course (mine and Sandie's!) Sandie had to get used to how wide and tall these jumps were compared to the little poles at home in the arena...and I had to get used to the "pops" that she would do over them (and her slight hesitations right before a lot of them which threw me off timing-wise!), many of which launched me out of the saddle! (For those that don't know, Sandie and I have only been jumping for about 2 1/2 months now, so we're both just learning!) FYI - because I'm also just learning to jump, I realize my form is not perfect and is downright bad in several of these jumps so please don't pick this apart!

There were several "near falls" that day, one of which is on this video, but I somehow managed to stay on! This was also Sandie's first experience going through water, and I was very impressed...she walked right through it, then trotted, then even cantered through it with no problems! What a brave, trusting girl she is

Our first "mini trial" eventing show is on June 21st, so this was a good experience for both of us to have before then! Wish us luck, it will be my first show ever and Sandie's too! (we'll be entering Intro which are much smaller jumps than those in this video...but they only had the next level up's jumps out the day we went for schooling so I'm jumping a bit beyond my level in this video) But anyway, ENJOY

Great video! I wish I had the program to make vids like that.

With the "Jumping beyond your abillities" that is exactly how it should be my dear. When you school, you should always be schooling heights 1 level above you - never the same heights you're compeating at.

Just food for thought :)

Doing a great job, keep it up! You and Sandie make a fabulous pair and you have a very bold hearted mare under you! She loves you and trusts you!

I love how you have a smile on your face - you look like you are just having so much fun!

Most (if not all) windows computers come with windows movie maker, where u can make vids like this :) I use it all the time :)

Macs also come with a movie maker. :)

HITS- great vid! U two have progressed and improved so much! :) I wish I had the opportunity to ride xc! :)

^don't let any family near you and you will be fine! lol! My mom freaks me out at shows! My trainer has now set a rule in place that once I am in the warm up, no mom or dad, or grandma, or little brother. Can't wait to see you really at the show! good luck!

haha yeah a lot of my family is coming too lol...I'll have to tell them to stay away! I had a nightmare last night about dressage haha...who does that?!

In my dream, I had a horrible test and screwed everything up and at the end when I went to salute, the judge came over and pushed me along out of the ring and said "ok that's fine, that's enough, thanks"! Then when they gave me my score I thought it was pretty good and my trainer looked at it and said "oh MAN that's a low score!" hahaha (which he would never do!) Dreams are so silly... :-p

Haha! That must have been a bad dream! And a dressage score is supposed to be low, IE mine was 44.2

I know, but in my dream it was out of 90 total points and the higher the better lol...my mind somehow made it up while I was asleep

The good news is that last night, I had a good dream that I was flying over these huge 3' jumps with no hands and my eyes closed lol!! So I guess that's a step in the right direction haha
