Kai jumping vids (critique welcome)
 
Soooo I actually have Kai videos today, woo! He warmed up really well then mum came out with her little p/s camera and took vids for me. Not my best day but Kai was good.

Same again but a little smoother second time through

Gosh you are such a good rider. :D
I like the last vid of the huge blue and white crossrail...

I wish i was as good as you! I'm just wondering as to why Kai throws his head down after all the jumps?

Pinto Pony 04-22-2009 07:22 AM

Thanks :D

I don't why he shakes his head like that, he doesn't do it always maybe 50% of the time. Maybe just a quirk he has?

You are great over the higher jumps but over the 'smaller' cross rails you should release a little more (this could be a little of a personal pref though). You are by no means horrible but it seems like when you go over the higher jumps your release is what it should be and I love it. It seems like over the smaller jumps you 'hold him back' it doesn't look like that's what you ARE doing but a little more hip closer and a little more release would make a prettier picture for me. VERY nice though! gah! jealous!

He is very politely asking for his face back.

Oh! I almost forgot also while you are approaching the jump and landing it looks like your shoulders are... slumping and rounding a little. See if you can keep your shoulders back and maybe give staying closed a little longer after the jump.

I disagree. I see a super steady rider who is staying out of her ponies way while he works his way through the gymnastics.

Wow, you are good! You are a very steady rider who is in control and still manages to let her pony do his job.

As for the head tossing, the pony I used to lease does that when he gets excited. Not being rude, just a "yahoo!" type of thing.
