Hi everyone just looking for a bit of advice.
I've been applying as a working student to yards for the summer and had a few yards come back asking for a video of me riding. Just wondering what I need to put in the video? I presume keep it basic and simple, wtc, jump a short course of 80-90 cms(I've only got access to 5yr olds right now, so that pretty much the max height I can show) and maybe some basic lateral work? Just leg yield, shoulder in, show my sitting trot etc? Anything I am missing?
Thanks
PTT 😊

Depends. If you're applying for a show jumping / eventing yard i'd try and borrow a friend's horse and jump some bigger courses if you can.

I'd show myself riding a variety of different horses and show the basics - walk, trot, canter etc.

Leg yield, shoulder in, half pass, flying changes or simple changes- the basics like that.

if in doubt, just email and ask what they'd like to see you do. I'm sure they'd prefer you to ask rather than giving a mediocre video.
