Good hand release and nice straight back, not arched I cant 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 dont 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

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. :)

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)
