    I think your leg did slip back a little, but not too much...also you are jumping ahead which looks like the reason why your leg slipped back. I think your toes look ok they should come out no more than a 45 degree angle. Your stirrups need to be on the ball of your foot...they are too close to your heal. If they are on the ball of your foot, then you would be able to push your heals down more..right now your heal is level with your toes. Other than that, you look good.

    I agree.

    Though we can not see your lower leg in the first photo it is clear that it slid back. If it did not (if your lower leg was in the correct location) you would have no bend to your knee at all and it is clear in the photo you do have bend to your knee.

    And you are for sure jumping ahead. Your hips should not be in front of just over the pummel of your saddle.

    If you look at your picture, you'll notice your crotch is above the pommel of the saddle...you should be hovering over the center of the saddle. And moving up as soon as your horses front legs leave the ground, follow your horses movement.

    Yeah that's why I am saying I am guessing when my boyfriend took this pic it was the first few times around before I actually was not getting a head of him. :)
    But as I said, in my OP its only been a few lessons since I started my jumping back up in 2 years its been a long time so I am getting used to jumping the horse to since I have not ever jumped a TB as well and he's bigger then my horse and has a bigger stride.

    I been looking at this pic very closely I cannot see it as clearly so I don't know if it did slide back but if it did then you are correct and I can see I am a tad bit a head of my horse.

    I agree with ErikaLynn and Always Behind. In both pictures your leg has slid back slightly and has caused you to grip with your knees. If you relax your leg and focus on keeping it up at the girth (it's not physically possible..or easily done anyways.. but it helps you remember to keep it up there) and keep your toes pointed forward, your bum with come back over the seat of the saddle where it should be. You have a nice release but you are thrown off because you are jumping ahead.
    Good job overall, but a few things to work on! Good luck :)

    So, I am the same way as I just started jumping my friend's ponies. (She has 26 on a farm in Amherst). Naturally, I seem to over-compensate for their shortness and lean too far forward. That's what you seem to do although it stills looks great... You try to keep your seat, but lean forward. As you approack the larger jumps, you migh want to get a little "air" between you and the saddle, but for now, keep your butt in ift if you can! Good luck, you look great!
