Crouching your stomach lower to the saddle, gives you a shorter, more rounded 2 point profile, try it.

xLaurenOscarx, you are obviously an excellent rider with a very talented horse, but why post asking for critique if you're just going to make excuses, become defensive and argue? I've seen much worse threads and even posting in this forum at all is a step in the right direction; it's just something to think about :) I do agree with what previous posters have said about you not having enough weight in your heels, jumping slightly ahead and being too high out of the saddle, but other than that you and your boy look awesome. Keep up the good work!

To be loved by a horse should fill us with awe - for we have not deserved it.

As someone who has a pony with a very thrusty jump I can relate a bit. You just have to 100% wait for him and let him fold you, because unlike less thrusty horses he will, trying not to absorb the thrust with your butt. It sounds a bit funny but, when he thrusts you up your taking it with the first thing you can, your butt. Try to more absorb it with your heels.
