The good, the bad and the ugly.

I was going through my pics and found some jumping ones. Some are horrible, some are pretty good and some are just plain...WOW.

Hehe so take a look and tell me what you think. Critique is welcome on the "good" ones. Not on the others.

The Bad/Ugly

^^Jumping a 6ft wide stream, I fell off after he took off at a gallop on the landing. Managed to stay on for about 6 strides or so and then I hit the dirt and broke my wrist.

^^Landed in the water on this one, I didn't expect him to jump, but he did at the last second.

^^I don't even know. Just plain horrid.

The Good

^^Overjumping a bit. Did an auto release because he takes off during combination jumps.


^^Overjumping, leg slid back.




Just for laughs

^^Don't you love how he takes trot/canter poles o.O

But yeah that is the most recent pictures of me and my boy jumping. Overall a good day. Still stuff to work on but getting better. Starting dressage now -.-

Meh! I am doing dressage to help strengthen him and I. I have always read that dressage training makes you a better rider and jumper so I am trying it. I don't expect to be great at it. Give me some time to try and get used to it and let me mope about it for a while After some time I will like it just fine, just gotta give me time and let me grumble and I will be all good

I have to say, good for you for branching into the world of Dressage. I am :)

Did you know GP Jumpers spend most of their time doing Dressage and jump only once a week. Reason being is that dressage is the fundamentals to being a great jumper and jumping really does wear and tear our horses joints over time.

Our horses joints are gold and we want to preserve, protect and prevent :)

I'm focusing on dressage myself this whole season that we are taking off. Dressage is the most competative aspect to Eventing, and when you reach Novice and higher, you are amongst very competative riders, if I want to be minimally in the top 5, Dressage is a definate must - and right now, our dressage is @#$@##!@. Lol.

So good for you!!
