    Default Jumping fun with Hoops! *vids*

    Ok so the videos are a bit rubbish as the jump is miles away, but better than nothing! I decided today was the day to discover Hoops' jumping potential - I think I'm definitely going to have a go at some WHP this summer if I can get to any shows She seemed to really enjoy herself, when i'd finished I was walking her on a loose rein, and she kept putting herself back in trot and making a beeline for the jump Only did little pathetic ones but I'm a bit rusty and also feel very insecure in the 15" saddle -- I kept nearly falling out the side door when she turned

    Apparently puddles have to be jumped too as there are tigers in them

    (don't ask me why it's repeated the same clip twice, I must have done something strange when cutting it)

    Aww so lovely she is, nice little pop on her, you do look (from a distance) rather more secure than I'd be- jumping small ponies is an art

    You look good to me - not easy to jump a small pony. I hate doing it!!!

    ... Saddle looks very forward tippy though which probably doesn't help you (or her). I know it can be a nightmare for adults with saddle size, etc, sometimes, but you'd feel a lot more secure in the right place on her!

    Thanks for the lovely comments - I think as the camera was so far away it didn't quite capture me nearly coming out the sidedoor after the first jump

    Yes, I have noticed this Going to see if the native pony fitter can come out and maybe part exchange for a bigger seated saddle - I'm too big for 15" and she will easily be able to take 16 or 16.5" which will put me in a much better position and make her more comfortable!
