    Agree. When a horse "pats the ground" in the true meaning of the term, the rider is waiting for it and allowing it to happen.

    You do often get the impression that the front end is so light it barely touches the ground in that last stride, on the horses that are so nicely engaged behind and light in front. Very cool to see,...

    A "chip" and patting the ground are two VERY different things. A chip is a rider mistake. When the horse "pats the ground", he was properly ridden forward to the base of the jump - and this will...

    It means that the horse is balanced and uphill enough to be able to come right to the base of the fence, and effortlessly shorten that last stride in such a way that it produces a fabulous jump. Some...

    No, actually when a horse simply just "doesn't jump high enough", they bump the fence with their TOES. To hit a fence at or above the knee (the cause of rotational falls), the horse must be in a...

    But what "facts" do we have? The official statement here was that the horse "misjudged the height of the fence" and had a rotational fall. And I call bs on that. Rotational falls do not happen when...

    It isn't entirely fair to judge a horse/rider on one fence, but it IS important to investigate the true cause of every incident, for the future of the sport. We mustn't avoid doing so to avoid...

    Lots of transitions! Trot/walk/trot will build up strength and carrying power behind. And from there, half halts, and "almost" walk transitions. And it won't happen overnight! Be patient, and take...

    What I don't understand is the claim that they are increasing the speed at those levels, because they don't want to see rider's circling on cross country to avoid speed faults. This makes very little...

    Exactly!!

    This is a big pet peeve of mine, because I actually see some trainers teaching their riders to sit down while galloping between jumps on cross country. They are being told that it helps...
