Jumping competition (90 cm.)

Heey,

Here's a video of our latest jumping competition :) I got a fourth place out of 22 competitors so it went pretty well..
Although I do feel we still need to train alot on approaching the jumps correctly on high speed, since he kept speeding up.. o.o'
Well anyway, please do post comments and some critique is fine too ;)

I think you guys look great!

I love how Europeans ride! You ride very differently from many North Americans, because in N.A we are very influenced by the Hunter World that has dominated form over fences and equitation between fences here.

I think you both look fabulous and I see you going quite far! Your horse has alot of power and scope, what a great pair you make!

Really? I never knew that.. But haven't seen north americans ride show jumping, so maybe that's why.. ;) But thank you! :)

I agree with MIEventer! One day I'll rid myself of my hunt seat habits.
Lovely horse and great riding.

Great round! Your horse is super happy to be in that ring haha.
And I agree on the NA/European thing, to me Europeans ride well off their seat up into their hands, while I seem to see a lot of NA riders ride in a style that can best be described as "hell bent for leather". Effective, but not always the nicest.

Thanks so much all of you!

But now i'm really interested in this NA/European style of riding..! Does anybody have a video or picture showing the difference..? You say people in NA use more of a hunter position or something..? Coming from Denmark, and knowing all the equestrian terms in danish, i'm not exactly sure what "hunter" is..? :S

Holy crap, your horse is a speed demon! Gorgeous boy, I just might have to steal him!!! Very well ridden round, I would be crapping myself, going that fast and that big over the jumps!!

Mk. So maybe someone else can do a better job than I can, as I'm not a showjumping expert.

But there are some major differences between NA and European riders

Ludger Beerbaum (German)


Nice release, not completely dependent on his horse's neck, letting the horse jump freely, leg slipped back a bit but overall good position

Mclain Ward (American)


On the horse's neck more, hands dependent on the horse's neck.


NOT to say that Mclain Ward is not an excellent rider, because he most definitely IS. And so is Ludger Beerbaum. Just a different style of riding. I think the NA way is a bit more exaggerated.
