Mostly, though, I feel very forward/leaning on her. I feel like I am pitched forward both before and esp after the jump. I do have a trainer and I do take lessons, but at the moment, due to monetary reasons, I can't take lessons for a few weeks. I thought maybe some trainers on here might have ideas. I realize that you will want a video, but I can't upload it from my phone. So if anyone can suggest things to make me take off at the right time (other than saying "just feel it" because that isn't working) and how to make sure I'm still not pitched forward when she lands. I think it is making it difficult for her to canter straight and balance if I have to much weight on her neck. Please advise!!
I'm going to see about riding a more experienced horse over some jumps later next week for better practice. Thanks for any help!
