Sooo I posted a vid a few weeks ago asking for critiques of me jumping my gaited 22-yr old Paso Fino gelding for the first time....Both of our first times jumping. Yes, I'm taking lessons, we're just working on the flat right now since I'm just starting English, but last time I posted I was in a bareback pad and you told me to post some new vids.....so here they are. Only 18inches here, though we've gone up to 2'9" (yes on my 14'3" little guy) because I was just working specifically on my posture here, trying to give more release and improve my form.
Artie only tucks on the higher jumps, so no tuck here :/.
This is our second time jumping....what I can see is I still need more release, I need to keep my back straighter, and stay in two-point longer. I'm also helping him stay in a slow canter over jumps, because as soon as he sees one, he just wants to gallop lol. Luckily he listens well, and we're usually slow cantering with him pacing himself when we get to the jump. Any critiques from you guys?
