Well first of all I don't know how to put lots of quotes in one reply so I will just do it like this.

My2Geldings~~First of all thank you very much for saying I have a refreshing attitude I try to keep everything nice but get my point across over the internet as it is hard to know peoples' tones and such. About the trainer that is what I have been in the process of doing for the past couple of weeks and I have it pinned down between two people right now. My main goal with a trainer is to perfect my position both on the flat and over jumps.

Sillybunny11486~~ The video was taken at the end of October and is the latest I have but after watching it through again I think I have improved since then. I will get some new footage soon and post it here for you all.

XoSonnyLove1234~~I do know I need to canter to the jumps I was trying and as said above to sillybunny11486 I think I have improved since then and one thing I know I have improved on is mine and Phoebe's canter work to the jumps. When you say I shouldn't be jumping her at that height are you talking about in the video or in the pictures? And yes as I have stated I am looking for a trainer right now

I would like to give a big thank you to everyone who has replied to my thread so far. You have all been a great help to me and I hope to put all your advice into practice.

And another thing since coming to this forum everyone has been so helpful and I fell like my riding has improved thanks to all the advice I have gotten from the members of the horse forum so I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has ever replied to one of my threads, and that I love it here.

Just read through most everything in here and I have to say I agree with CharliBum. This is the exact thing I was going to say.

Phoebe's a really cute little jumper... and I only looked at the pictures for now so that's what I have to judge by. I think she would be great for lower level jumping... but working on grids, and coming to the jump with impulsion... not faster speed but more energy will help her learn to jump with her knees a little straighter and not crooked.

As said above... the main thing that stuck out at me beside the knees was your release. When you don't release it affects how well the horse can stretch his head and enck over the jump.. which is VERY important. It also can affect how well he lifts the rest of his body because of the restrictions of your hands.

Overall I think she's really cute and has a lot of potential. Work with a trainer... which I know you are getting (good for you!) and keep up with your positive attitude. Without good attitudes, the fun and real reason for the sport is lost. Thanks! E

She could probably do low level she needs to work on her mouth. Are you going into 2-point or just standing up? Try releasing more that will help. I think its great that your getting a trainer!

Many people just get too caught up in how fast their horse can go, or how high their horse can jump, or how long their horse can go. We should not push our horses to the "how much" limit. I know that most everyone on here loves their horses, they just get caught up in competition, they want to bet better than everyone else. They need to just stop and think about their horses health, safety, wants, and needs.


Start her out at 18" and work your way up from their slowly. 16 is not by any means a young horse, and she is much more likely to harm herself at that age, so school low and don't enter her in any really serious competition

i didnt really look at the horse because im not that good at that kinda critique stuff ;)
BUT.....
You yourself will go VERY far in your riding/horse career and learning, because you seem to be very open to opinions and advice :) and you seem very eager to learn,which is the most important trait a hrose person could have! IMO

Lol I just had to tell you that, then you might remember and hopefully you wont go sour on learning and taking critique from people :) good luck! And your hrose is very pretty!
