    crits? : )

    It's just a small clip of me jumping my QH. Any tips?

    And sorry for the colour, I got a bit excited whilst editing.

    Looks really good.
    I will say you need to sit back a bit on the approach, it looks to me like you are leaning forward, maybe anticipating the jump?
    Also be on the right canter lead, it doesn't matter so much on the straight but on a course, you need the right one when going around corners.
    Follow your jumping position with your hands, to give release. If you pause the video at 0:10 you can see that you are catching him in the mouth on the landing.

    I did actually notice myself pulling on him whilst landing. I didn't even realize I was doing it! And that's awesome advice, thank you. : )

    As said above your rushing into the fence in your postition. Sit back and try and flow with the horses movement :) Focus on "throwing" your hands forward. This is what my trainer did too me and now I am learning to realease nicely. You have too over do it before you get it naturally.

    I have no idea why I was leaning forwards so much! I hardly ever do that when cantering. I think I'd just gotten him into a canter and you really have to push him for that so I was still tipped forwards from that, who knows!

    But thanks for the advice! I'll remember that.

    No problem, just think of it as too get a really solid, but steady canter. You need too use your whole seat not just your leg. You need to squeeze with your WHOLE lower body, if you want me too go into more detail I can.

    No no, I think I'll get it.

    I'm actually thinking of stopping for a while and just trail riding or something cause Lopez seems to be getting bored and I am to. So we'll focus on something else for a bit then come back to it all fresh : )
