    Here is a vid of Nelson and I doing that Clinic with a 3* Eventer. She had Nelson and I bump from Novice fences to Training Level fences and this 3'3" drop into the water was one of them.

    LOTS of fun!

    Remember Stef...COFFIN CANTER! If you are approaching a drop, you must establish a rhythmic, bouncy, UP HERE canter. Drive and ride it like you do any other fence.

    Remember to allow the reins to slide through your fingers. And remember the Eventing rule - better to be left behind, than get ahead, especially with drop fences.

    You are wrapped around your horse, you are tall in your tack and you want to ensure sandie stays infront of you.

    You rode your bank just fine - don't stress about it. Don't allow her to come in flat...she must come in at a coffin canter.

    My Coffin Canter through the water was shyte.....I pushed him to forward and too flat - when instead I should of kept him under me, up and round and engaged.

    Coffin Canters must be established for Water, for Drops, For Coffins, For Banks- there are so many fences out there, that needs the horse/rider to approach in a rhythmic, beat, tempo, engaged, pop and spark, round, collected manner. The key factor is engagement from the back end and the horse remains up and under you.

    I probably have a video of Jim Graham talking about drop positions now that I think about it I'll look when I get home.

    Ok, at :29, you are getting ahead of Sandie - you do not want to do that at drops. You want to be tall, chest open and stay over her, not ahead. Do not drop her like you did here. Other than that, you looked pretty good.
