thanks for the compliment! i love to jump. most jumping problems are due to flat work issues. shouldering in is a common problem for us all. the secret is to learn to ride straight and control the horses shoulders all the way to the corner. the problem usually starts along the rail way before the corner. support your horses ribs with your inside leg (the calf rather than the heel). the rein aids that i use are: hold the outside rein steady to keep the shoulder on the rail and don't let your horse overbend to the outside. inside rein will be more elastic and "give & take" to encourage the inside shoulder to lift and bend slightly to the inside through the corner. lots of 20 metre circles help correct the bend and supple the horse for better balance in those corners. do you have any videos posted from your rides? you'll get feedback from other HC riders though some of them i'm not sure they actually jump! lol. they like to tell everyone to stay up longer over the jump or keep heels down. :)
