At least you stayed on!

But instead of getting angry at Moo for refusing - ask yourself what was it that you could of possibly done, to cause the refusal.

90% - 99% of refusals is rider error.

Moo is sure teaching you to sit deep!

Haha **** right I do sit deep in the 4 and a half years of moo, 1 fall (so far! Lol) But that one was in fact moo in my opinion, it was quite a 'dirty' one. I did the usual presenting moo to the jump, good approach, rhythm, active, good stride, extra leg and slam on the brakes but it was the first time on grass in a while so I wasn't to fussy

Did you do that tripple bar to your right?

Well - Moo sure is teaching you allot! Definitely not a horse who covers your patunk - which in my opinion, makes one a much better/effective/solid rider in the long run!

No the triple bar wasn't in the course

She usually does cover my patrunk like the 1st picture on the 1st page but she has taught me a heck doodle of a lot about keeping my ass firmly in the saddle I have had quite a few nearlys from various things, but the one fall was from the walk

Nelson sure has taught me allot.

He is a serious competator and I've never had him refuse a fence if I were riding correctly. But there are those days where I can be slack, or I make 1 movement in my body - where he either leaps the fence like a super hero, or he stops.

I've had 2 mihaps on him. One was when I as schooling over a Trak - causing me to come out of the saddle and landing oddly, where one foot was still in the iron. And another where he stopped and I flew over him - ending up with a metal jump cup embedded in my arm.

That is why I stress sitting deep, legs wrapped around girth -because we need to support our horses to the fence at all times - Nelson, taught me that!

So blessed be those horses, who teach us!

Ouch cup in your arm, but yeah :) I love my pony, she taught both me and my sister to ride

Here is us jumping it nicely today :) and yes my position is pretty poor but I was thinking more about a release then my legs

Lol - I posted pictures of my horse covering my (_!_)!

Yeah, I look over at my right arm and I have a permentant scar to remind me of my error.

Live and learn!
