More jump video

A huge thank you to Karen from Bakersfield Dressage for the video!


This is from a casual practice ride while Karen was visiting for the Dr. Christian Schacht clinic late June.

Videos are so good because they really do show us what we need to work on. Note to self: get a handle on the lower leg situation! And stop holding him back so much, sheesh!

    1. I am very happy that he does. Jumping a horse that doesn't like to do it is on my list of things to avoid.

  3. You guys rock! Looks like you were having a ton of fun!

    On the lower leg do you practice your 2 point often? I have found that that helped me a lot. Either way you look great and like you're both having a blast.

    1. Great idea on the 2 point - I'll have to do more work on that. Pretty much at this point I'm just trying to be more mindful of a secure lower leg in a general sense.

  4. What a cutie...I suggest shorter stirrups...will help the leg and your base.
