Hi everyone! I've posted before letting you know that I just started jumping crossrails at the trot about 3wks ago.
I have only been taking lessons once a week since January so I'm very excited to be jumping already!
My trainer took a video of me today. This is my 3rd week jumping crossrails but this is my first time on Artie. He's a 4yo TB and such a sweetie on the ground. His trot is very smooth and so is his canter. The video below is the first 2 jumps EVER on him. :)
I am very, very, very new to jumping and I know there are many things to work on with my form since I'm a beginner. There are so many things going through my mind as I approach the jump: heels down, leg on, core tight, my hands on the rein, keeping him the same speed, keeping him straight, when to get into 2 point, getting into 2 point, etc. etc.
I am looking for pointers and tips from all you lovely experienced folks! Please be kind...:) Thank you!
