I have just started jumping my horse at shows and he has done great so far! We have done low jumpers and have placed decent, 7th out of 12 and such. BUT the only problem is that my horse is slow, and I truthfully need a slower pace also!
My eq is horrible and I'm working on that, but my horse is hard to ride that I just worry about him and not my position (aka getting the right leads over fences and making sure he jumps it!)
My eq is ok at home because I have time to practice, but where I show and jump, there is no warm up :P
I have taught my horse to jump with help from my trainer, but he was originally trained western (sorta) Lets just say he was very green!
Here is him now! This is our first jumping show and my stirrups were long because I wanted more grip for the first show! But please rate him! Thank youu :)
Its our first ever jumping show. He has never jumped at a show before. He never knew how to jump before I got him. He was just ridden western. I trained him how to jump. His knees arent as sloppy as some horses at the tristate horse show I go to. He was sloppy in some but we were rushing to beat the clock, and the jumps weren't much of a challenge in height. They were only 2'3 maybe lower. He has jumped up to 3 so far. My position sucks, I was nervous, my hands were high I know. Please just look at the horse itself! Thanks!
