Hi everyone! Looking for some pointers! I'm still fairly new to jumping, did alot last summer but have no arena so not much since then...now the rain is letting up and making for good footing again and I need alot of work! I know a couple things I'm doing wrong or could do better, but looking for outside opinions and advise! All I have is backyard ponies and homemade jumps, nothing fancy and no coach...never go over 2'3-2'6. And before I get flamed, yes, I should have a helmet on. I'm aware of the risk and choose not to, I'm 23 and allowed to go without. SO, without further adeu, I give you me and Flika, my mom's rather chubby 14hh Quarab mare!
Warming up over a crossrail
I know I'm WAY forward in this one!
About 1'3 here
And again, WAY forward!
And once over 2'-2'3
I know I need work, so let me have it! LOL any pointers would be more than appreciated! Also, keep in mind this mare is 11 years old and almost entirely a trail horse! LOL brought her back into work this spring after a minor leg injury last winter, so yeah...she's hefty!
