Our younger riders have been busy practising their jumping these last weeks. Our jumping lessons always focus on something different each time as jumping isn’t just about “point and jump”. It needs work on balance, tempo, stride, height, form., relaxation, body position, landing leg, transitions… practice makes perfect. Taking photos helps riders to see where their hands, body and legs/feet “are” as opposed to where they think they are. Because we aren’t always aware in the excitement of the jump.
But every time there are improvements. And a lot of effort and commitment.
