....and rather enjoys it ;)

Tally is my 12 year old 15hh English Riding Pony/Welsh gelding, who has an extreme personality. He's evented up to 3'6"(1.10m) with his previous rider, and at the first event I tried with him, finished 6th out of 5 starters. The biggest problem with jumping him is the jumps need to be about 1m for him to actually concentrate properly, and they scare me at that height!

We were just having some fun popping over some spreads and combinations today, and I convinced Mum to take photos.

Critique is begged for! I'm hopefully getting lessons when I can find an instructor, but at the moment I'm on my own. Yes, my lower leg makes me cringe, and I tend to get left behind on Tally as he thinks its great fun to take the long stride and fly in the air.

Any critique on him is welcomed ;)

good jumping! you know about the lower leg. your whole leg needs to come forward into the knee roll. everything else looks good. your jumping postion is good.

:D He reaaalllly likes jumping! He begins bouncing up and down whne he realises he's allowed to.

I really wish he wouldn't purposely take the long stride, his jump is big enough as it is!

Well...its a funny story which involves me curling up on the couch to watch Jericho, with the laptop on my knee. One of the cats then decided the knee should be shared, and leapt on a table so she could get a good angle. This table contained a glass of juice, which went all over my keyboard as the cat, with wet paws, skiied across the table and nose-dived into the floor. Consequently, my keys stick a lot, and I missed half of Jericho!

It was meant to be 25 :eek:
