    I like your nice, solid leg, it stays under you beautifully! Over these low jumps, the only thing I see is that your hands are 'in your lap' a bit. Try shortening your reins and follow your horse's motion over the jump. This will make your movement more flowing and graceful. Good job!

    Ok, I have that problem on the flat, too. Thanks, everyone tells me I have a solid leg and I'm really happy you did too.

    You get too far forward out of the saddle for jumps these size. Think crouch or squat, not lean. Also, like the other poster said, good leg but let your hands follow her face more to keep them out of your lap

    Also good job on looking up

    Not to be a party pooper, but those logs are pretty unsafe jumps - if she knocks them and they roll, they will be a huge hazard as they'll go right where she might land.

    I have to say...I'm so jealous of your leg. I wish mine looked like that when I was jumping.

    I agree with everyone that you need to take your hands out of your lap and encourage your horse to stretch over the jump. Also you are jumping ahead sometimes. The still image of you, I think, is a good example of how your 2-point should be.

    Other than that you look secure and confident.

    I do want to add that I don't think those logs are unsafe to jump..they seem like they would be hard to roll. They're just like any other jump pole, they can fall and roll under the horse's feet too.

    Thanks everyone! I know the jumps are safe, but thatks. Me and my friend put them there and they are REALLy heavy. Its just a XC jump, most are dangerous and wide.
    I do definitely need my hands up more, when I watched these vids I went EEK! I havn't had a jumping lesson in ages also.
    Thanks
