Ive just started jumping.. trying it at riding school 3years ago, in few lessons.. and could not get the hang of it. With my tall long legged body :/ I was still put on ponies, and could not get the hang of the position.. I've found out my cob is actually quite good. Clearing 3ft loose jump, at 15 I can't fault him, I think it amazing aha. But he has a confidence issue with colours, and higher the fences. Sometimes if he done like the fence... he'll refuse.. which I understand. But then he catleaps.. how I can I show him the jump at shows... without walking him up to everyone.., is there some technique I can do.. to let him see the jump before we jump it? Plus he is strong.. we have had confidence issue when first had him.. as he'd rear, bolt, buck.. the lot :L but now he my dream pony :) Any tips to sit to a catleap? && any tips with my jumping position.. I've just started.. and always found it hard.. so please be nice >< I know I got to get more over his neck? And arms need to go forwards.. the arms thing is my trust thing.. if he's quite calm.. I put arms forward. If I feel he going to cat leap etc.. I hold back "/ Im 5ft 7/8 btw, my pony 14.1hh ish. I know im tall for him... but im 8stone ish.. so I think he ok with me?
