So I have been ridding for 4 years only it's only been once a week so I don't get to ride that often. I'd say I'm a pretty good rider. I can walk trot canter and I do do jumps. (Only cross rails) I have never had a lot of work on jumps and even though I can do a decent jump I often find it hard to get the rhythm down,
Unfortunately I got into the habit of looking down. The issue is the more I focus on keeping my eyes up the harder I find it to get everything else. If I focus on eyes up sometimes I forget to ask or if I focus on eyes up and think hard about asking I find my timing on getting up to be off. I have a hard time keeping track of all of that and just havn't been able to get a good rhythm down every single time. Especially when we go a few weeks without jumping.
When we were doing it every week it got slightly better but we haven't been able to do much this summer so im kind of sloppy. Don't get me wrong I can jump it just gets a little sloppy at times. Im going to be starting a lease so I will be actually able to ride and practice more than once a week, so what im looking for is tips on how to get that rhythm down better.
