Well the title pretty much says it all, but lately I've been watching a lot of videos of Mitch jumping and he doesn't bring his knee's together(especially on the lunge), physically he clears all the jumps no problems and gets himself out of sticky situations(generally), but how do I get him to look tidier while doing it? I know he can do it because I've seen photo's of him with his knee's perfect in the showjumping ring(over bigger fences though), I must be doing something wrong I'll admit that right now
. Otherwise he's conveniently forgotten how to, but I doubt that.
I have literally gotten him to bring his knees together once.. Once, that's it, and I've had him since December 2010. I'm not impressed with myself I can tell you that much.
-I've been doing a lot of pole work with him and raised poles etc to try and get him off the forehand, but I still can't get him to jump evenly. He consistently puts one leg down just as the other tucks up, generally his outside leg
mind you he has only been jumping small verticles.
Any ideas, or do I persist with the polework etc? I would also like to start setting up gridwork for him, but I'm not entirely sure about what way I would go about it
