This is an absolutely lovely video of a woman jumping 6 feet, bareback and at one point bridle-less. She is an absolutely outstanding rider. This horse also appears to be quite good at dressage as well.
Show jumping lesson #5 with Altamonte Show Stables. Here we worked more on creating an even cadence to the walk, trot, and canter then some canter work. Finally, a number of small jumping sets were completed and evaluated. Instructor is Brody Robertson who is a master rider, trainer and jump designer. Horse is Aurora Borealis von Jorrit, a Friesian Cross.
Horse is free jumping with trainer on the ground. Taping is being done by the horse. 😉
Here are some fine examples of jumping horses and riders. I think it is important to watch a lot of good jumpers in order to continue to improve.
The above video is a snippet from a George Morris jumping clinic. George Morris is one of the world’s best jumpers and instructors. His riding style is fluid and gentle. Watch how lightly these horses are ridden. USHJA offers full clinic videos for sale.
