jumping a m, any tips?
the other day it jumped just over a metre for the first time :D it might not be alot but its a big accoplishment for my group and me, as it was the first for all of us. However does anyone have any tips on jumping a metre? when i jumped that height i came right out of the saddle, i just think it was the first time jumping that height so i was a bit out of it. I luckly didnt fall and was able to recover and get away safely lol. any tips on postion etc? thanks
Your position should be the same for every fence
Congrats on jumping that hieght :D
thanks :D i think that my heels were coming up and that was my problem. i had to kick after the first jump to encourage the horse i was riding to jump the m, so i think my position was all over the place. thanks for the tips :D
Just remember, a jump is only a longer, higher stride.. nothing to get freaked out about. Keep you position steady and you'll be fine.
thanks justdressageit i just always had a fear of jumping after one lesson where things kept going wrong lol, but im trying to gain back that confidence :D
