Well, I just started jumping again this year, for the first time in about 10 years, so keep that in mind, my legs are definitely not what they used to be! I’m looking for suggestions on building my lower leg back up. It seems like no matter what I do my lower leg bounces quite a bit. I used to be the no stirrup queen. 2 point without stirrups? Cake! Posting trot for 10 minutes with no stirrups? Easy! This bouncy lower leg makes 2 point a little more difficult because I feel like I can’t be as effective with my leg. I’m out of ideas lol Also, I hunch over horribly over the jumps and apparently like to drop my left shoulder. I work with an instructor when she is able to come to town but have not hauled out for lessons to where she lives (89 miles away through the deer gauntlet). Anything helps! I’d also like to hear your thoughts about my horse’s form over fences. He is very new to it also and we have been taking fences from the trot, but he seems to be taking to it quickly. The photos where he is really reaching are from a one stride bounce (you just can’t see the first jump) teaching him to jump from a 12 foot stride. My instructor wants him to learn to reach because he has a tendency to suck back and shorten rather than extend for the jump. TIA! ETA: I do have short videos, but I'm not sure if my phone will allow me to put them on youtube, I've been having issues with that. If I can, I will later, but it won't be this weekend since I leave for a show right after work.
