    Good hand release and nice straight back, not arched I can't see your feet so im assuming they are good... the only thing is you seem to be gripping too much with your knees causing you to tip forward a it too much and go infront of the saddle a little, Im not saying don't grip with your knees at all, just your calves a little more and you shouldnt tip forward. But other than that I can see your position is good and good luck with your jumping

    When you two-point over the fence, just.. kinnda tip your body forward so you don't come out of your seat that much.
    Overall, nice position and cute horse! (:

    Thanks guys. :) I have only been jumping a few weeks but I have not jumped in two-three years since I stopped riding at this other barn I got no where at that place and after my horse was retired I couldnt bare it now I am happy with the results :)

    Here is another pic. :) My leg did slide back a little bit in this pic.

    Yep exactly what I mean. I said in one of my other posts to grip with your calves? Well gripping too tightly will turn your toes outwards again

    Your helmet looks like mine, I jump blind sometimes because it tips forward and covers my eyes. My mom has a heart attack when Im in the show ring and I let go with one hand to push it up lol.

    I really like your release, and your heels. :)

    Good luck and keep up the good work Funny about the helmet lol, My mum does the same thing when im jumping in the ring, she yells "BOTH HANDS PLEASE" and puts Tess off lol
