So I love jumping, with a passion and my mare really enjoys it too.
She's a 15.3 hh STB. She weighs 910 lbs and that's not underweight. She's SO narrow.
I don't have the best leg either, but with her, it is SO hard for me to keep my lower leg near the girth.
I've improved some by really putting my heels down and REALLY holding with my thighs, but it still slides behind the girth.
I really want to fix this, but I can't afford to take regular lessons.
I'm putting money toward a few things, her shoes and my lessons. Shoes get more so lessons aren't as often as I'd like.
Does anyone know how I can fix this, a few tips on it?
This is a picture from this summer, I've improved the slightest bit, but not by much. I've also been trying to not throw my hands up her neck because I follow them too much and make her heavier in the front
The second, is on a different horse who has a way wider barrel. It's harder to see, but my leg is much more secure. Not great, but better than on my mare.
