Monday Night Lesson – Jumping Videos

I love my horse!

IMG_5269

Dreaming of warmer day.

No long lesson recap because coach/friend J took video. I haven’t posted video of my riding before. I hate how I look in video. Like seriously, do I even know how to ride. Someone put a monkey in a human suit and put it on my horse. I’m slightly reluctant to post theses. But here you go anyway.

I biffed the lead change off the oxer a few times but eventually got my shit sorted out. I’ve got to stop letting him fall in. Inside rein not outside to get him into the corner. duh!

Course #1

Course #2: I’m slightly disappointed that you can’t really see the faces I was making at J at the start of the video. Also can someone please tell me what that green dot is.

Course #3

      I get that a lot. When he’s hairier J says he looks like a Thelwell pony. He LOVES being squished. Especially his nostrils… he’s a bit of a weirdo.

      Thanks! That’s an understatement. He gets so excited when I’m not forcing him to dressage. Lately I’ve been having to hold him way back while jumping because he’s so enthusiastic. For example putting 6 strides in a line my coach wanted 8 in.

  3. I totally get the “I hate seeing myself in video WTF am I even doing” feeling! This is why a) I’m glad no one is at the barn when I’m riding to take photos/videos and b) I’m probably still looking like a drunk monkey up there. You guys definitely look good, though, like you totally know what you’re doing!

      Haha! Video is awful. At least with pictures you can pick the best one. With video you get all the bits flying everywhere all the time. Thanks!

    That looked great! I would not worry about the lead change stumbles over the oxer. I find that even the best of horses sometimes have issues with changes in the indoor. What I was super impressed about is that he lands his leads like 99% of the time! Smart smart pony!

  5. Don’t knock your riding, you’re lovely!! You guys look great!! I could be wrong, but in the video, the ring looks fairly small. You guys float around it and make it look easy!

  6. I hadn’t realized you’d never posted video before… and now I definitely don’t know why! You both look lovely, and do a great job of riding in a tight ring.

    1) I wish I looked that good in jumping videos!! Maybe I would if I could ride that well in jumping. Hmm. 2) Green dot = ALIEN. Whut. 3) “Eh?” I love you, northern neighbors! XD

      1) Thank you! You ride better then you give yourself credit for. There’s a difference between riding well and having serious nerves. Trust me, I know. 2) That’s exactly what I was thinking! So far I have no strange abduction stories though. I’ll keep you posted. 3) LOL! I don’t even hear it!!!
