Haha I have a bad history of high jump experiences at home. I am a college student and this was my second time jumping in three months. I leaned up the neck, and she said “no thanks!” haha poor mare puts up with me.
Hey, everyone! This is a quick clip from my lesson on Nala this morning. She is the best little girl ever and she’s for sale! Please let me know if you are interested. Critiques are also welcome on both horse and rider. (I know my equitation isn’t the prettiest, but I’m not an eq rider anymore, we do the 3’6″ jumpers)
Two years ago yesterday, I lost my first horse, Louie. He was a 10yo TB; I had owned him for four years and we grew together from the Beginner Children’s up through the Junior divisions. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss him. This is a picture from our last medals finals three years ago…he was put down immediately before finals the last year he was alive.
This is a video of Nala and me at our ISC show….I posted photos a few weeks back but didn’t have the video until now. I know we trotted in the second class, but I think I was nervous and didn’t have enough impulsion because I was holding her back. any and all feedback welcome! she is also for sale!!
So this weekend Nala and I rode in our home Illinois Short Circuit show. We did a 3′ jumper division, a 3’3″-3’6″ jumper division, and just for fun we filled the small hunters at 2’6″. We took champion in both the hunter (her first hunter class EVER since she is a hot OTTB) and the higher jumper class. I would love feedback on my position especially since it looks like my shoulders and arms aren’t where they should be. Any critique on Nala is also welcome! The third and first pictures are the ones I am most concerned about my position in.
Nala and I do the 3’3-3’6″ jumpers on our local B circuit. Any advice is very welcome! The exercise with the flower boxes was the main focus, working on adding or leaving out a stride in a broken line without changing pace as much as changing the line itself. Thanks in advance for the critique The first 6 minutes are us flatting if you’re not interested in watching us W-T-C. She’s for sale in the Northern Illinois area!
