So i just started to jump on xmas eve and i need tips have any good ones????
Yep i know wacha mean I love waching Iloverazzmatazz and eddiesgun too!I agree with finding a instructer/trainer/coach if you don't have one yet. And if it's possible, get someone to film you. You can really see what you're doing wrong when you watch yourself riding. I also watch YouTube videos to get inspiriation from. my fave youtubers are JazzCiceroCasper and eddiesgun(some number that i can't remember).
Thats a good one! you make it sound soo easy!! my trainer was trying to tell me that but i was like out of it that day.... that s a keeper im writing down!!!!! themTake a look at this post: http://www.horseforum.com/jumping/form-over-fences-26333/
And...here's another HUGE tip that goes along with letting the horse jump to you:
When jumping, your hip angle should CLOSE and push your Buttocks BACK towards the rear of the saddle. Your seat, in this two point position should JUST clear the saddle by an inch or two. When the horse jumps his natural thrust will make sure that you are high enough out of the saddle for the size jump.
Nobody EVER told me this. I had 2 trainers who both had many successful riders...or so I thought since neither of them ever cared to tell me this tid bit of info from the beginning. Who knows what I would think if I saw their students jump now. I thought a release was to OPEN my hip angle and lay on the horse's neck to give slack and it is not. That is a common mistake.
