Well you don't have to be quite so dramatic about it but I picked a photo that was slightly exaggerated just so she could see what I meant. ^^ But yes, you should stick your butt out at least a little. You have to keep your hips centered over the saddle to keep your seat steady and firm for the whole flight over the fence. If you round your back and bring your butt with you as you lean forward, you're likely to fall over the horse's neck upon landing. Or end up slouching over the fence which is sloppy and will not help you or your horse make a stable, balanced landing.
