Critique my equitation?
Feel free to tear apart my eq and tell me everything I'm doing wrong/right. =X
If I had to critique myself, I'd say leg forward, hands forward more and stay back behind the pommel. x]
Thank you! (:
ahead of the motion over jumps, just wait a little bit longer. all you really need to do is tip forward a little and it will bring you more than enough outta your seat to make those sized jumps. also turn you toes in :)
Alright, thank you! (:
Agreed. You are ahead of your horse, just a little more release, and toes in. In the flat pictures, bring your elbows closer to your sides so they arent pointing out. :D
Okay, thanks! :]
Just let the horse carry you over the jump, instead of you jumping for the horse. I just thought i would tell you that, because i always jumped ahead, then someone said it like that i all of a suddenly i didnt jump ahead anymore while i kept that in mind. :)
and your horse is really cute
Okay, thanks (:
I'll have to let you know if it works next time I ride! haha
Thanks, but neither is mine (I wish xP). They're just lesson horses I ride. :]
Going over the Jumps You should stay behind the pommel, not in front. Give your horse some reins. And make sure you Slide your hands forward when The horse jumps.
you're really riding on your crotch which is caused by tipping your pelvis quite far forward. This is really evident in pic #5. When you tip your pelvis like that, it makes you grip with your knees which is why your legs are slipping so far back when you jump. Once you find the right position with your pelvis, your horse will also be less on the forehand. The last two pictures really illustrate how heavy they are on the forehand. Try sitting at the halt and rocking your pelvis so that you're arched way forward and then way back. When you feel your hips loosen and your weight evenly on your seatbones, you'll know you're in the right place. Good luck!
