Question Perfect Position

My goal right now is to seriously improve my position. So, to help me do that, I need a clear example of it. So, could someone please explain to me (in words, with description) what YOU consider perfect position while jumping, cantering, and walking/3-point position. I don't need critique, I just need to know in words. Pictures are good, too, but I'd prefer in words. Thanks!

In dressage I like to have a straight line going the entire way down the body explains it ion an easy way.

Jumpin should be the rear raised slightly out of the saddle with all the weight in the legs not in the hands which will thrust you foreward. A slight tilt in the hips allows you to adjust your position in accordance to the the jump. Don't hang on the reins or fling yourself up the neck its not pretty!
