The Bounce
So, this. Was so much fun to do with my mare, this her second time ever doing something like this, and I am very proud of her, and I think she did awesome(:
(tell me if she didn't)

I know she didn't jump the first jump, it's a cross rail, and those apparently aren't jumps anymore.

I really have to tell her to jump, like a good nudge just before the cross rail, or she tries to fit a stride in between the two. Well more just like she gets a quarter of a stride and then jumps, which makes it not so good at all. Haha

As for myself, my leg slipped back some, and I think I landed a hair too soon, that's been my problem lately.

Thanks everyone(:

It's much more clear if you watch it in 720p, btw (:

Very nice! Althought it was very fast! :lol:

Yeah! I thought it was fast, but I think it's because I had to really push her around the turn. It's like she slips with her back feet around that one corner.

The turn is too tight maybe?

Fast? no way, maybe could have been a touch slower, but not by any means fast.

As for your position I thought it was very good, little hard to tell though.

For your horse not have done anything like it she tackled it very well.
Good job!

Thank you!!
It's my lower leg. It slides back, but my heel stays decently down. I think i'm pinching with my knees
