HELP ME! Jumping position
Okay so the deal is: when I jump, my WHOLE body slides back in the saddle. Picture someone holding their position, but it just sliiiiiides back (NOT my leg! My WHOLE body)
So I've been trying different things to fix it.. Lowering the fences, TONS AND TONS AND TONS AND TONS of stirrupless (sitting trot, sitting canter, posting trot, 2-point trot, 2-point canter, and LOTS of it), etc. Obviously the stirrupless helps (when does it not?) but the only thing it does is ensure that my leg doesn't slide back behind my body. But my whole body still slides back..? I've also tried ONLY thinking about it when I'm jumping, like gripping for life with my calf so that I don't slide. But I still do?
Here's a picture. I purposely tried to get the worst picture I could, and this was from about 3 months ago, so I've improved a LOT since then (I only go EVER so slightly back now!) but I want to make it go away all-together!
Any tips? Ideas? Has anyone else had this problem?
**Once again, this is NOT an issue with my leg sliding back, but rather my whole body!
