    Default So, What Would George Morris Have to Say About This?

    I must say, I do like the rider's position and the "attentiveness" of the horse.

    He's definitely carrying a lot of weight on his hind end, light in front, hocks well under him, ears forward... lol

    Nice tight front on the horse, but the rider's leg position needs work.

    The horse has depth perception issues and I don't balme him look at the way the poles still in the standard are set- It reminds me of an Echer print.

    Not a single one of those poles are still in the jumps cups. Not even one pole, sitting in one cup. They are all knocked loose.

    The rider has ridden too deep to the fence...

    Ouch, the horses tail looks like it broke in the middle. The rider could be water skiing.

    That is a cool photo!

    I have a somewhat similar one from a show with my youngster last year. But the one in the OP is taken to the next level!

    @PNWjumper, Uhm I'm pretty sure your horse needs to jump it, not karate chop it! Rofl

    Most likely the horse stopped fast and slid, like a sliding stop

    That was my thought, too.
    The way he has his knees / ears up makes me think he was not refusing the fence but actually going for it, but maybe took a bad step or slipped right on take off.

    Great picture in any case!

    Only you would be able to look so chill while your horse jumps like that.
    Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.

    I think the horse is concentrating very hard on using his magical powers to juggle the poles in the air, no easy feat that.
