    Good for you. I look forward to hearing about your Hunter/Jumper shows and seeing pictures.

    There's nothing wrong with doing Hunter/Jumpers, I'm not one for the "rules" but it is always great to venture into other aspects of the Equestrian World.

    Heck, an Eventing Friend of mine just took Reining Lessons, and she had a blast. Another, exercises TB's during the winter *talk about leg exercises there*

    I do Hunter/Jumper shows - but Schooling. I never joined an actual Hunter/Jumper association or anything like that, but they are fun to do none the less *the schooling shows I mean* never done a Rated Hunter/Jumper show.

    Good on ya Stormy. Have fun!

    I think Chance would seriously like cross country though, I do want to get her out and see what works for her! I don't like being limited where I am.

    But hopeing next summer to bring her to hunter shows to see how she does in them :)

    Thanks MIE! VERY helpful posts! :)! I know I have a habit of catching Chance in the mouth at the landing, cause I can't seem to stay into 2 point long enough!! So that could be part of it, I gotta remind myself about it.

    No, I can't. At a non jumping barn. Me and 2 others are the only ones with permission to jump. I do want an instructor to come out at some point, but there pretty exspensive so that's going to have to wait.

    But I can usually fix myself by watching videos and comparing it to what it should look like, and work on it from there. But the staying in 2 point thing I can do, I just need to REMEMBER to do it lol

    Thanks MIE! I will try harder at getting pics and vids from shows.... We are off until the middle of Dec. When we are going to a clinic and then off again until at least Jan where we might go to a Nick Larken clinc.

    OP- paying for a trainer is something that is needed, you need the eyes on the ground to tell you stuff, because something that feels right, can be totally wrong, IE- I don't feel it but I'm starting to get ahead of the motion on my horse and seeing pics and having a trainer is helping that.

    I agree with Stormy, I know it is really tought getting lessons, and I know that finances do get troubling that can aid in preventing lessons from occuring. But, honestly - everyone needs eyes on the ground.

    My Coach takes lessons, her coach takes lessons and even GP Riders take lessons. Even GM and Jim Wofford Audit Clinics and watch videos of the "Great" Pro's to aid in helping them get a more broader perspective on things involving their sports.

    Even if you cannot afford to get lessons, I highly recommend having someone video tape your riding, so that you can have others with more experience to aid you, and help you obtain and eye and feel for what is going on.

    All of it agreed! I've always found SO much help in having people videotape me and then taking a look at what I'm doing! It's always great to have that perspective!

    I really want lessons, but atm its impossable. I do have a few people to tell me whats going on and remind me if I ask them to watch, and also videos and pictures are keeping me from picking up horrible habits...or any more :P

    And now that my horse is actually being sane and don't have to focus on her as much I can see what Im doing.

    But I am looking into dressage instructors to come and give me lessons.

    Maybe try it at a trot, or from a different direction, etc, but never aimlessly take a horse to the jump the same way over and over again. They will NOT jump if you do that.... = D
    I agree. Its like my instructer says: The definition of insanity: doing the same bad thing over and over again and hoping 4 a different result! :)
