| || | I just want to say to this comment, that there is a big loop in her rein, and a more then sufficient release for the size of jump she is going over. If she was to give much more release, she is going to start getting into the habit of ducking over her fences, instead of having a tidy smooth release. OP--See how far forward over the saddle you are? Try and push your bum back a bit, so that you remain centered in your seat. I like that you have your hands pushed into the mane for a proper crest release. You do have a big loop in your rein, which in time, you should gradually get rid of, so that you can maintain the contact with your horses mouth. Your leg has slid back a tiny bit, and your heels are just starting to come up. Were you pinching a bit with your knee maybe when you went over the fence?
