    I'm no expert on this, but I'd like to see more angle in your leg. You almost look like you're standing up in some of the pics. 2 or 3 holes shorter and close the angle of your hips more. Good job on the release. I'm going to try and picture it while I'm jumping tomorrow. My release needs serious work.

    Your pretty much standing in your saddle and not two-pointing. That little bitty jump isn't ment to be you two-pointing very much just lift up a little heels down and hands on neck.

    Also I think you need to put your stirrups 1-2 holes it looks to long for jumping,. Some pics you look fine but some your just severely going a head of your horse and standing completly. But you do look good.
    Cute horse

    I think you need to lean down on his neck more =)

    It's very hard to critique a head on shot accurately. Do you have any photos of you jumping taken from the side? Also, you'll find your pony "pops" less if you put a ground line in front of the fence, rolled out from the base about half the height of the fence.

    Do you see the picture where you're left behind? You honestly barely need to be any further out of the saddle than that. For jumps this size, you don't need to be far out of the saddle or down low on his neck at all. Instead of jumping for him, which is esentially what people are doing when they stand up over jumps, try to jump more with him by just folding forward a bit and allowing the momentum of the jump to bring you slightly out of the saddle. An exercise you could try would be to hold the reins backwards (just grab them from the top in a fist) & go over a few jumps that way. It'll not only force you to give a correct release, but it'll make you really feel him jumping.
