    Red face Critique on my position

    I found this picture on the web of me, didn't know it existed! It is from last year from a low hunter class (I won it, lol). I haven't jumped since, I am pretty chicken I will break my neck if my horse stumbles. I just went into 2 point and let Indy do his thing, we survived. How is his form, and mine?

    I would recommend doing some work without stirrups. You are pinching your knees and pivoting forward onto his neck- using it for support. Basically you are out of the saddle to much. However, your horse is also making quite an effort up over the jump. Overall, everything is pretty minor and you have a pretty good base. Tuck those wings in!

    Other than being a little ahead of the motion, you actually look pretty good. You could easily ride out a stumble or two. Keep jumping woman!

    The only thing I noticed was that the reins are really loopy. Other than that you and your horse look great!
