Jumping my horse through a bounce thing.

I've never taken a video jumping my horse! I have videos of me jumping other horses just not my own. So here's a video from today. Feel free to critique if you please I know I didn't go with him as well as I could have landing from the second and my horse could have used more engine but I thought it looked nice otherwise.

Here we are!

not to sound mean, but that's not a bounce it's a one stride grid :)
In a bounce, the horse lands and takes off without taking a stride in between

try moving your hands up the horses neck when going over the jump

as said above, that is a one stride=]

I thought you guys looked pretty good and consistant. The things I saw were that you should be moving your hands when you release, you sort of have them just planted in one spot the whole time. Also I would like to see your horse moving a little more forward, he looks a bit stuck in the canter and not in front of your leg. Over all you guys make a very good picture =]

Thanks for the correction, I really don't know much jumping terminology, unfortunately, and jumping is my thing. I can't even set up my own jumps cause I'll get the striding wrong.. lol. I guess then the day before it there was an extra jump before the first one and it was a bounce cause my horse couldn't take a stride. Thanks! Now I know what to call it :)
