Arrow Me jumping 28-OCT-09

Hey That's me on Lisa jumping. I learned it for myself, and I am just beginning for Lisa really loves jumping (I like dressage more). Never had jumping lesson, so it's not so good
And I think the second one was better
We don't do this often, just about once a month five or six jumps-30-40 cm

>>Do you think I am too big and heavy for her???

You look okay for your first times.

Your saddle could stand to be brought back a bit, though, as it looks like it's way to foward; you're practically sitting on her withers.

You guys look good! I don't think you're to big for her, she's carrying you with ease and you seem easily balanced on her.

I agree about the saddle though - it's a common occurance in these smaller ponies because they lack a real wither and the saddle tends to ride up really bad. You may want to look into a crupper?

She's absolutely adorable in any case!

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

She has got the belt from the tail to the saddle, I don't know the name in english. But she is not used to it, she hates the pressure on the tail, so we have to shorten it by degrees. I think in one or two months it will be OK for her, but now she is just accustoming for this equipment. The saddle falls forward only while jumping and we don't do it often now, so I am not in a hurry to make her accustomate very quickly. I want her to take time to uderstand and get used.

Its called a cruppa in english!

I think you should make it shorter though because your saddle is way too far forward! :)

I think you are a little underhorsed for your height. but weight-wise you look fine.

It is actually called a Crupper here in the states.

You and your pony are adorable.
If you were going to show here in the states in hunter classes (which you are obviously not going to be doing) then I would say you look too big. But otherwise I think your cute pony is not having any trouble carrying you.

Thanks:) Today I was again riding her, but it was raining whole morning, so we could only walk and a bit trot... In walk, I was pulling the crupper into the right position and length, but she was really nervous. I think we will work on it hrough the winter, since we cannot jump anyway (no indoor arena). I hope she will accept the crupper soon. But today when saddling up, she was quiet furious about putting it on, despite the fact that I triple checked the saddle and the crupper if it is all right. I think she simply hates it (Me personally, I will also hate some belt cutting into my butt )We will work on it, anyway.
alwaysbehind: Yeah, I am a bit too big for her, but I cannot see any competitions in at least 2 more years. I hope we will work out some muscles too

i think rather then buying a croop if your going 2 continue riding in that saddle you should get a qualified saddler to fit the saddle
