Picture. This is me going in the saddle. For once. XD I think I need to do something with my lower arms. Like make them higher or something. I know what's wrong. And maybe I should have released more. (But I have been doing much better on this) Anything else? What about me looks GOOD? ;)



I have a video I may post later.


You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

Not to be rude, but I don't think your horse should be jumping. He is a bit old to be jumping. One of my horses is 21 and I jump her after I got my vets opinion. You should get your vet to look at your horse and make sure his knees and legs are ok. Just my opinion.

I think he looks happy doing it.. actually looks great for 24.

Maybe don't practice jumping quite as much due to his age, but he looks good!

I think you guys are doing well, your heels look really good!

I don't know how much help this picture will be, as it is a front view, but it gives a little of an idea of what the others are talking about. Instead of trying to fully two point just bend a little at the hip, as I did in the picture. My release is horrible because that was when I was first learning how to jump [I think it was only my third month of jumping if that] so ignore that.
