Critique my jumping?



I know my leg is too far back, and I'm not giving enough, but otherwise, any critiques?

Keep in mind, I haven't been able to jump this high in a long time so I'm working on bettering my position over higher jumps, and I have my trainer who comes out once a week. So I rely on others for tips while she's not there.

Oh yeah, this jump is 2'9".

Thanks!

I'm actually kind of nervous to get critiques. Because I'm afraid people are going to be like well, stop riding. Haha.

Sorry if I repeat things that you have said already.

Your lower leg has come back. It looks like you are pinching with your knees.
Try gripping with your calf instead. Also try some no stirrup jumping and no stirrup work to strengthen your base.

Your hands should be further up on his neck, and it will give you a less scrunched up look.

I can't really tell, but if your hands are open, close them.

Good job for looking up!

I think with a little more work, you'll be doing great!

Yeah, I know what you mean about my leg and giving. And I have been working on no stirrups everyday for several weeks now. (However, these pictures were taken 3 days ago) So any other tips for working on my base? And thanks for the tips!

Oooh, that could have came out wrong. I've been working on no stirrups when doing flatwork everyday. I do no stirrup jumping like 2 or 3 times a week when I jump. And another question, any tips for keeping my leg more forward? (like for better jumping position)
