    Changing horses messes me up! [video]

    I had a different lesson horse this week after having the same amazing pony for a month. This pony is 18 but is for more experienced riders as she can be a And boy did I struggle! I know I need to focus on getting more impulsion with her, but is it just me, or does she just jump...odd?
    Warning - some major fails and cringe moments in this video!

    Compared to last week... this is the most incredible pony though, no wonder we did alright together:

    Well, like the say if you don't fall your not getting better. You are going to struggle when moving up to a more "advanced" horse, but that's good: your just learning how to ride.
    You don't want to be that spoiled brat that rides the best horses and does so good not because of her talent but because of her horse. The more horses you ride, the better rider you become !

    Oh and one more thing lol !
    In the first video, the horse is doing everything fine, your just sitting there pulling back and not trying to help her in any way. This is why your put on different horses, to learn how to actually ride.

    The first more resent video she's not getting close enough to the jump your asking her her take off to soon. Every horse is going to ride differently diversity will make you better.

    Yes... I would say your first little pinto pony jumps a bit "odd". What you're feeling is that she doesn't rock back on her hind and push off with a nice round bascule. This mean all she's doing is planting her back hooves into the dirt, and hurling herself over the fence. She's strung out and flat through the entire video. Were you my student, you'd be telling her to whoa.whoa.whoa! She needs to come into the bit and into your hands, and you need to get her in front of your leg with her hind end propelling her forward... instead of the front end dragging the rear! As for the gray pony, while I would pick him over the pinto pony, I dislike that he wrings his tail and is also taking you for a drag. More whoa, and less rushing to the base of the fence. My only major critique for your riding would be to be mindful of when you're sitting back in the saddle. There are quite a few times when you're sitting too soon and grabbing your horse in the mouth.

    I rode tons of different horses growing up... and I can sit just about any kind of horse. I am not a pretty rider, by any means. But I am a strong and solid rider. So riding lots of different horses and ponies, will make you quite strong and able to handle all sorts of rides.
