    First of all the grass!!! You should not have long green grass like that!! It's just wrong! (I'm jealous, my paddocks are very brown and almost bare at present)

    The main thing I see is you are pivoting on your knee. You need to hold more with your calf which will help to keep your heel down more and leg more forward.
    Other than that, it doesn't look too bad (except the grass of course)

    ^^^ What makin tracks said...Keep your lower leg to the stirrup. It will help you keep your position so you don't end up pushing yourself ahead of your horse.

    Haha this is my mate, was her first time jumping EVER on her hrose (she jsut doesnt jump) and I madddeee her, such a honest horsey
    I thought she did well, all we were focusing on was the release at first, and she is now learning to sit her butt back down and lest the horse jump

    Step one: bring pony to auckland
    Step two: get lesson with Lubii
    Step three: perfect jumping position.

    That's just not right. If your friend has NEVER jumped before, you DO NOT put her over that high of a jump. You have to start off gradually. What if she had fallen and gotten hurt? You have no idea how much liability issues you would be involved in. Also, sit back. Push down, you are completely out of the saddle. Put the weight in your stirrups and put your shoulders back, look up, work on that two point.

    Aw wahwah. Who cares, she felt safe everyones fine, were nutty as hahaha who caaarreess

    Safety should come first.

    Beyond that, the first picture, the rider needs to put their weight in their heels. And push their heels down. If that's the first jump ever, its pretty good.

    For the second picture, hands should not be on the side of the horse's neck. The need to be above the mane at the lower part of the main crest of the neck. The rider also seems to have a turtle back forming.

    Legs. Work on them. Toes up, heels down, don't allow them to slide back.
