I duno about your position, but your saddle looks really far forward in the jumping shot.
You look like you don't have quite enough weight down into the stirup/heel.

Oh yes the saddle slipped forward on the takeoff. My position is a lot better now though.

I think you need to bring your hands up in the first picture and bend you elbow more, and you look a little too stiff. Both pictures you need to put your heals down more. Other than that you look fine.

Ok thanx

Your stirrup should sit on the ball of your foot. Not shoved almost all the way to the heel of your shoe. It is dangerous to have your foot shoved home in your stirrup, even with safety stirrups.

I agree, you saddle is too far forward. I find it strange that you say it slid on take off. I would think that take off would make most saddles slide back, not forward.

She did this funny little buck before the jump. Not making excuses but as I said it was my first jump so was really rusty. But thanx for the tips
