Jumping position critique
Here are some pictures of my jumping from today.
Critique my position please.
1) Release your hands more upwards on the neck
2) Keep your heels under you, legs back a little more.
I agree with JDI
you need to release a whole lot more and you need to be looking UP and a head of u not down at the jump also keep you legs a little bit more under you and dont point you toes outwards :)
but other then that u good pretty good u did good at keeping your heels down cute horse aswell :) i think i have the same saddle as u. Cute bridle
Yer it took ages to learn to keep my toes in doing flatwork. When we were jumping competitivly a couple of years ago I instinctivly released more over the higher jumps. We were only going over a small crosspole yesterday tho, why would you give a big crest release over such a small jump?? I was always taught to keep the contact.
The saddle is a Wintec 500 AP.
Well U may pop them in the mouth when they go over it or land its just always something u should do when going over jumps at least that high not a huge release but just enough so u dont pop them.
I think I have a wintec 500 ap aswell!
very sweet horse, lol, luv the saddle pad
Dont worry I dont snag her mouth, its still a release, just scaled to the size of the jump.
I need some excersizes to strenthen my leg position. Ideas??
-Your legs are in front of you. You should be able to draw a straight line through your hip and your heel. Bring your legs back so that your toe is on the girth
-It looks like you could leghten your stirrups. You don't need them that high for jumping those heights. This way you will sink further down into the center of the saddle
-When you release you need to move your hands up the neck. And close your fingers more so that you have total control of the reins.
Overall you have a very nice center of balance. And you seem to be able to feel the horses take off very well. You have a nice foundation and a natural back. :D
Try to move your hand up a bit and don't rest them on your horses neck :)
Other than that great jumping
You seem to anticipate the jump.
I can't critique though, as I am not familiar with jumping.
