Talking Jump on it!!

Here we go again (in our color coordinated outfits, no less! ) We continue to practice our jumping together and I was a very "proud mama" today when Sandie was the only horse not to refuse the first jump in this video (the others thought the board underneath was VERY scary!!) We may not look very polished yet, but for our second month ever jumping, I don't think we're doing too badly!! And the best part is that Sandie seems to LOVE jumping, which is great because this is supposed to be fun for both of us!!

I agree, you two are doing terrific! Sandy has a very natural jump in her! The only thing I would suggest is try to sit back in the saddle a little bit more... it looks like you are getting ahead of yourself and her... she really does fly up to those jumps. Slow down her pace by sitting back and using steady leg pressure.

Keep up the good work!

Exactly what my trainer said to me yesterday I have a bad habit of getting in front of the motion in the 2 point position, and one of these days she's going to refuse and I'm going to regret it lol!!

My horse is just starting over jumps too. He really enjoys it and the more solid (like barrels instead of poles) the jump, the better he jumps. You look great and Sandie is adorable!
