Out on the CC you are going alot faster than either stadium or show jumping, and you arn't woried about keeping a nice bouncy canter, just getting over the jumps and going fast
Got any pictures of you eventing...........in any of the phases ???????

no, because I haven't been out in like 5 years, because I had a bad trainer

Out on the CC you are going alot faster than either stadium or show jumping, and you arn't woried about keeping a nice bouncy canter, just getting over the jumps and going fast to beat the time. You might colect going towards a Teckehaner or sunken road

I would like to see any old pictures.

I have pictures going back more than 20 years, before photobucket came about.

Surely you must have some.

Acctually, no. Whenever I was at a show, my mom was riding too, or I was just schooling there. I don't have any pictures of me showing Blue, or any other horse, at all. I am only 14.

Stadium and Show Jumping - are the same exact thing. Regardles if you are at a Hunter/Jumper show, or at a Horse Trial.

In a Jump Off, I can see going "faster" but in an average round, it is about Rhythm, control, balance.

I highly disagree with you here, and if this is what your coach is teaching you, find a new one.

You NEVER ride the clock out on CC, that is a fast way to trouble and danger. You ALWAYS ride your horses Rhythm. Just like in Stadium.

Yes, one would Hand Gallop between fences, because we want to lighten the load for our horses over those distances - but when you approach a CC fence, you **** well better be rhythmic, under conrol, your horse light and responsive to remain under you - and you ride that CC fence totally differntly than you would a Stadium Fence.

You're speaking of a Coffin Canter.

~~~

When I say you cannot ride a Stadium Fence the same way you would a CC fence - is I mean by form.

Those fences out on that CC fence should never be under estimated - NEVER - whether you are doing a GAG fence or a Prelim Fence. Regardless - the rider should remain solid, deep, tall, lifting their horse up into their aids - never flat.

You NEVER ride the clock, and if your coach is teaching you that - find a new one.

This is a sport to be respected - period.

Also, regardless if you are in stadium or out on the cc course - you always approach a fence in a rhythmic tempo, strait, rounded, light, responsive.

The riders form - differs.

I would disagree with you in the fact that stadium and show jumping are the same. Show jumping is the disapline, and it is much more technical than stadium, which is what eventers do. Eventing stadium courses and show jumping courses are very different, show jumping is harder thand a stadium
