    You guys look pretty good over all ! The biggest critique I have would be to make sure to keep your leg under you so you arent in a chair seat. Also when you are jumping, don't sit back on your seat bones so much. If you have a little more weight on your pubis you wont have to fling your body forward so much before the jump and end up sitting in the tack to early on landing. =]
    Thanks! I'm riding today, so do you think that working on my two-point on the flat would help with not sitting back so early? And don't apologize for laughing, I sat up and was grinning, and whenever I watch that part, it makes me laugh .

    gotta laugh or youd cry, right ? Haha

    Have you ever done 3point ? You stay in the tack more than your 2point, but you still close your hip angle as in your 2pt. So that you have more weight on your pubis than your seat bones. If that makes sense ?

    I THINK it makes sense- is it a little bit like half-seat? Or am I just completely confused . I'm pretty sure it makes sense though.

    Yes I think so, although I don't use that term because so many people think it means something different !

    I always thought that 3 point was the normal riding seat - because you have 3 points of you on the horse. (Your two legs and your butt)
    And then 2 point was the jumping position because you have your two legs on.

    I understand what you are saying though gypsygirl - it's the seat you use in between jumps in a course, just like normal but with a softer, lighter hip angle.

    The only things I really noticed was that when you were cantering your feet went straight out to the side when they should be pointing more to the front. This may be because you are putting to much weight into your stirrups and not holding on with your legs as much as you should be. My other point is that I saw you were sticking your legs/feet forward (chair seat) when you went through one of the jump/pole combo's. Put your legs/feet a bit further back, heels down, and sit deeper into the saddle. Others's have also been saying to round your horse up a bit more, I agree. My first coach was a dressage coach and my first jumping coach was an eventer so she did dressage as well, my current coach is a dressage/jumper coach as well so I am always working on collecting/rounding/bending my horse (flatwork). From what I have seen/learned is that basic dressage is in everything we do when jumping. I am not telling you to do dressage movements/full collection but just round your horse up and he will work a lot better from his bum and have a more powerful but controlable take off/jump/landing. Good job on the last part of the video. I almost fell off my pony like that at a show, though this looked a lot harder to stay on!

    people all have different terms it seems ! I do not use 3pt to mean a deep, full seat, but I know some do !

    Thanks for the critique, Sophia! A chair seat is definitely one of my biggest problems, partly because of the saddle. I don't get to choose which saddle Thumper is ridden in, and that saddle definitely puts you in a chair seat. I'm not blaming it all on the saddle, I'm sure it's partly me, but it definitely makes the problem bigger. I'll definitely work on asking him to work more from behind! It's one of HIS biggest issues (besides being insanely heavy on his right side). I'll ask my instructor if we can work on this some more at my next lesson!

    Just like everyon has said, work on staying in two-point a little after the jump. Other then that good job. And good save :) I know I would of been on the ground lol.
