Just as a point of reference for you, the instructor saying one jump was perfect doesn't mean its consistently perfect. I took my first ever jumping lesson Sunday and the first jump (according to my instructor was perfect) the subsequent jumps...not so perfect. I would ask why. She may have a good reason

What a forgot to mention is that with my old instructor I was trying bigger jumps ( and yes... I PROMISE my position was NOT all over the place) trust me I am super hard on myself about my position ;)

It may also be the horse. As a wise man once said, a horse only has so many jumps in them. And especially if it's a lesson horse, they don't want to "over jump" that horse. If everyone jumped that horse 3 feet, he'd have a high risk of premature arthritis. I show 3ft eq. and did cross rails all the time when i took lessons. Don't take it personally. :)
