Falling off at a show always sucks!

For a second there I thought the chestnut was jumping out of the arena!

Here are a few I have:

The first one: I don't even know what happened. She managed to clear it though! Gave me a good buck on the other side -- she wanted to make sure I was awake up there and not give her a horrid distance next time

This next one was at a jumper show and that pony is just a brat and likes to run out of anything even remotely scary. Knowing me, I was probably staring at the jump 10 strides away . We managed to get over it the next time though.

This picture is from when a long time ago and I hadn't had much jumping experience. The horse (who I actually now own!) really takes a lot of leg other wise he tends to suck back.

WHY YOU SHOULDNT JUMP AHEAD OF YOUR HORSE!

I was teaching a jumping clinic in Canada and I set up an X jump. It started out being very low and everyone was like....MEH!! LOLOL, I knew the horses would see it in a totally different way...that was the test.

This horse wasn't going to give it any chance to reach out and grab him!

Haha, actually, we were jumping out of the arena for the hunter derby class. This was the practice jump. Rusty was so good. :) PS - Would you like to guess his breed and the gray's breed? Always want to see what people think my jumpers are.

That jump can actually be jumped 12 different ways. It was supposed to be 16 foot poles, but the clinic manager only made them 12 feet. It made the jump a bit too small to get all 12 directions in safely.

Love seeing these! I'm just starting jumping again so I'm sure I'll have something to contribute soon

Off topic but Allison that x jump looks awesome. I think I can envision the 12 ways to jump it but would love to see a video! Does it have a special name so I can google/youtube it?

They had a jump like that at Eventing in the Park. It caught out a whole heap of people, and these guys were all graded showjumpers or 1* and above eventers.

This is my friend jumping it (She went on to finish 5th and won a saddle!) The pony is about 14.1 I think, and a 1* Eventer.

I have a fun one... this was a friend of mine trying a new horse (i'm on the ground taking the picture), the horse is a saint... but it was a moving 3 stride to a vertical and she rode it in a super quiet 4... when she got to the base, she looked down and leaned up his neck and he said: "not today, my friend!"
hahaha! The picture makes me laugh.

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

That's quite the launch. Was she okay?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
