    jumping a m, any tips?

    The other day it jumped just over a metre for the first time it might not be alot but its a big accoplishment for my group and me, as it was the first for all of us. However does anyone have any tips on jumping a metre? When I jumped that height I came right out of the saddle, I just think it was the first time jumping that height so I was a bit out of it. I luckly didnt fall and was able to recover and get away safely lol. Any tips on postion etc? thanks

    Your position should be the same for every fence

    -heels down
    -eyes up

    Thanks I think that my heels were coming up and that was my problem. I had to kick after the first jump to encourage the horse I was riding to jump the m, so I think my position was all over the place. Thanks for the tips

    Just remember, a jump is only a longer, higher stride.. nothing to get freaked out about. Keep you position steady and you'll be fine.
