    I can't tell a lot from the pictures but the commenter there mentioned your horses knees being sloppy, which they do appear to be. Do you find that he rushes jumps? You might want to think about doing some gridwork or gymnastics with him to tighten him up a bit. You look like you are a bit too low over his neck as well, for jumps of that size. Overall though, the two of you look quite cute together.

    He's a rusher, dragger, and emotional. I can only do a few jumps before we have to go back to ground work and get him to back. He's actually a AAA Circut Hunter... He just rushes with green(er) riders. I can't do grid work with him due to his rushing, we will run right through. He can jump well. He just looses his balance nad rushed.. I started riding him on a correct contact of an elastic elbow not catching him in the mouth and that helped alot with the rushing and balance.

    Got a good dressage trainer in your area? It would really help to work with him on listening to you better. Does he blow you off when you trot jumps too? I'm no A circuit rider, but rushing fences just never sounds safe to me. I'd love to see George Morris get on him and see how quickly that rushing problem disappears.

    I actually Train at a 3 day event barn and do dressage every week. It helps but it'a not alot. My trainer works with George and I went to his clinic 3 weeks ago and he told someone who had the same problem that the horse has to learn self carriage. Then he can learn to balance him self. So we work on a lighter contact for jumping and on the bit for dressage! Hahaha I'm also a junior who's not very strong so he gets schooled by his owner (another trainer) before I jump him each week
