Tip/Quote of the Day # 3189

To be truly safe when jumping cross country, both horse and rider should learn to love that deep takeoff spot.


Please note that a "chip" is not the same as a deep spot. A chip is when the horse adds a stride unexpectedly, usually because the rider is going for a long spot or otherwise interfering with the horse's striding, and the horse is out of balance. And that's where the rotational falls happen. A deep spot in balance is the safest place to be.
