    Base of the jumps

    What does it mean to bury your horse to the base of a fence? Apparently I do this a lot, though unintentionally. Is it like chipping in when you get your striding wrong? Are there any videos of someone doing this?

    And lastly, how do I stop doing it?

    If there's anywhere else I should be posting this, just let me know! :)

    Yes, it means getting your horse too close to the base of the fence. It can get dangerous fast as the fences get higher. A ground pole can help, but best to work with an instructor to help develop you eye for the proper distance.
