Smile jumping lesson !

Here are some clips from the jumping lesson I had this weekend ! Its with one of the horses I ride =] I wont say he was an angel for the whole lesson, but it was really great to get him out & jump with someone I trust.

What a great time it looks like you had! Congrats on the good ride.

Since you didn't ask for any critique, I will offer none. However, I cringed when I saw stacked cavalettis used as a jump. This is VERY dangerous. If you hit a pole and knock it down, it simply falls flat on the ground and offers little danger (yes, I have seen horses step on them and get injured).

If a cavaletti is knocked down, they roll on their base and still present an obstacle. A horse can get tangled in them and possibly fall or worse, flip. This creates a real danger of serious injury to both horse and rider. This is just my opinion. I will not use them that way. Other trainers do.

We sort of ran out of jumps, which is probably why she did it. I never do that at home though ! Good thing that horse is careful, but accidents can always happen !!

Ahhhh, That's the kind of horse I like the best!! The rude ones are often the best ones...smartest....most capable... All you have to do is figure how to channel all that attitude.

The stallion on my avatar was "dangerous" when I fist started working with him. Even after we became partners and anyone could ride him, few wanted to.

lol I feel the same way, but sadly most people at the barn are not convinced =[ he kicked a few people before I started riding him & there are so many politics. No matter how well he behaves in front of people they still see him as being terrible.

He used to not move forward at all undersaddle, just stand & kick... he is really good on his feet though & he can run side ways faster than any horse I've ever ridden =P

Since you are aiming at jumpers, work on keeping him more in front of your leg. Do some dressage with him as he will really benefit from being more engaged in the haunch. I tell all my students that jumping is just dressage over fences. It will help a lot.

This horse is lucky he has found you. He seems to like and respect you, not that he won't try to stand up to you from time to time. One only hopes he will continue to be your friend and partner, because I have found that slaves make poor jumpers.
