    I think that with slightly longer stirrups you're less inclined to get so far up the horse - because the stirrup gives up something to push off and then as your backside goes up ('your' in the general sense and not just you!!) there's this overwhelming urge to grip with your knees and then your lower leg pivots off them
    You look great in those pics btw

    Glad to hear someone else experiences jumper's blackout and forgets everything they learned at home! I'm going to try that Allison torture exercise too. I like to think of Fred Flinstone stopping his car on approach to fences. Cute horse!

    Well she isn't going to win any speed races!

    I'm sorry if I spam everyone with her exploits but I am so proud of my little horse, she tries so hard and has helped me to do things such as hunting (bloodhounding), team chasing, dressage, riding club clinics which I would really have struggled to do on my Tb. I didn't do Pony Club as a child and now I feel I'm making up for lost time!!

    Considering I took a gamble on an unhandled bag of bones 4 years ago...

    Yes, I think it is the "stopping the car" image that makes me lean forward...I'm willing her to go forward and over as I might of in the past got her to go faster forwards on a hack, sitting up and taking the weight of her forehand I understand is correct but making myself do it is a real struggle (unless someone is yelling at me to do so!)

    The sun has come out so I'm off to ride her for a bit - I'll be trying Allison's exercises

    Oh no, I definitely wasn't complaining, I love following along with all her adventures! Keep it coming!!

    I can't believe she was in such rough shape when you got her-how lucky she was to end up with you.

    Now I want to hear all about your student's haffy.

    I think they do get under your skin the show I went to last week someone had to come over to say they had one and funnily enough exactly the same thing happened at the same show the year before (but different people). They are uncommon over here, but I think it is the love fans have for the breed (which I can understand) that makes them have to share it .

    I have my times for the ODE - Dressage at about midday, showjumping 1.15pm and XC just after 2pm, so not too much hanging around. I'll do a separate thread for it

    I see so many hafflingers out here, and have been dumped by a particularly horrid one... that didn't endear me to the breed.. but your girl is stunning!

    She really give those jumps her all!

    She's definitely more "red" with a pale mane compared to most I see!

    No comment on the jumping from me, I'm too scaredy cat!

    Looks like you're both having a blast!

    Out here as in Germany? Hattie originally came from Belgium. Sorry you had a bad experience, my vet thinks I've been lucky with my two as his experience of others has been poor. They definitely need to trust the people handling them, Hattie used to halter break away from me until she decided it was better to stay with me. Her daughter is much darker in the body (more red) than Hattie
