    I'm Sick Of It *Rant*

    Hi

    Well today I rode with Lisa, that was great. But Chinga and I decided to go over the tyre jump. So anyway, I take him round trot him through the center line, ask for a canter and then push him round the size before coming in towards our jump. Nice straight line up. Refusal. My fault. I was in my posistion to early, I was very lucky he didn't dump me. This happens two more times, even though I try harder to sit back.

    Then I really focus. We clear it, although he leaps it, we still get over it. Mind you at this moment I was lucky to be in the saddle. Its annoying, its a habit. That I just push myself to far forwards. So we give it another go, he still leaped it a little bit but he had improved. Legs sat neatly together, he was perfect. I was good, he didn't bump me out. I stayed there nicely, still I was up his neck *sigh*. Third jump and final jump I finally got a proper jump out of me. Then finished off. I love Chinga, he is so patient. But god was I angry at myself.

    Although I haven't jumped in four months, I still wasn't happy with it. It was a tyre jump not the nomal poll, it was a jump like the picture below and we have never gone over something like that.

    I'm sorry to hear about this little scuffle. ((HUGS))

    But like they say-- Practice makes permanent. And even if it dosen't make permanent, it WILL help you a lot (..you probably already know this :).

    It sounds like Chinga is a very responsive horse, which, may be irritating, but it means he's at least listening to you.

    And it's always good to at least KNOW what you are doing wrong so you can go back and fix the problem. Maybe you could practice on another horse before doing in on Chinga?

    And for Pete's sake, you haven't jumped in 4 months! Don't beat yourself up about it :)

    Thanks, Chinga is the only horse I can jump on. As my riding school is in mid-term at the moment, so that means that we are not jumping. But I can do private lessons with her.

    First off. If you are over jumping and he refuses you should be jumping something like that. If you are dumped into it your going to get injured bad. I got dumped into hollow barrels one time (not even an xc jump) are broke my shoulder. You should be jumping smaller things, untill you get the timing right. You should sit until you feel the saddle sort of lift you up.

    Did you end up working with a trainer after the last go round of jumping issues you had? I recall several suggestions of lots of flatwork that time around - did you pursue any?

    Yes and I was hoping to work with one of my trainers, but Lisa the girl I was going to ride with was a bit nervous so we did little things and it was there so I took Chinga over it, but next Saturday we start our lessons with her. Means I will have three trainers.

    If your saddle is lifting you up you are in serious trouble.....

    Also that photo wasn't the actual height of the jump... it could have been under two foot?????? Or it could have been 4?????

    I think maybe you need to do more grid work with eyes on the ground to work on your timing ;) it will come
