I would strongly consider wearing a helmet when jumping and riding a green horse.
Your position overall is very good minus the fact you are generally very stiff in the saddle.
Are you looking at buying this girl?
I tend to ride really stiff with her because if I don't hold her with my shoulder and back she rushes in this bit.
I know with the helmet, everyone gets on my back about it. You would think after fracturing my skull I would learn, but apparently not.
I am not looking at buying her, but I am definitely going to be taking her to some eq. Shows this year when I take my horse just so she gets used to it. Her owner is a novice rider and has not been to see her since last March.
