Every time I either jump a scopey horse or over a larger jump I get popped out of the tack.. It's soooo frustrating for me I want to be an awesome rider but I feel like I will never be a good enough rider to soar over those amazing big jumps.. I have been riding for years..
Now my pony Levi I can jump 3 1/2 feet on, and because he jumps like a deer I stick like glue. But my new boy Cowboy is learning jumps can sometimes LAUNCH is like its 5 feet high and I look like a motorcycle stunt person hanging on to the handlebars with my legs in the air behind me. Lol ok maybe not that bad but it feels that way. I LOVE how he is trying and not refusing and giving me 100% but I want to be good enough to handle his big tries. PLEASE PLEASE any advice or tips...
I've tried sticking my feet down and forward like landing gears and really putting my but back, but then the saddle pops my rear end and down my head goes.. along with all my balance!!!
OK I'm going to throw a few videos out here so maybe you can get some dynamic lol..
Here is my Levi that I stick to nice..
Then this is me falling off a larger horse over a PUNY jump!!!
Getting popped out of the tack at the end here...(quick vid)
And this is recently with my cowboy.
What am I doing wrong??
