Ok for those of you who know me, I told you I would post some video of my first cross country course with Sandie (her first too!!)
For those who don't know me, keep in mind that both the horse and I have only been jumping for about 2 months, and we're both green in general!! (so don't judge these for form or anything lol)
I flew up out of the saddle on several occasions that day, caught off guard by the giant "pop" that Sandie had going over the cross country jumps...we are used to skinny little poles in the arena! Cross country is definitely the most fun thing I've ever done though And for those who DO know me, check this pic out (my form actually looks much better I think!!) The video is below it -the pic looks better haha...in the video I get popped up out of the saddle (I wasn't asking for a canter, she picked it up and I let her go with it and up until now I pretty much have only been trotting jumps!)
I'll post more videos later too!!
