PLease critique my riding and jumping

Hey guys :)

So its the begining of the season so I know I got lots to work on!! My position isnt the best ! I know I have to put my heels down more and not clinch my knees as much and follow his neck with my hands and keep my seat closer to the saddle and all that! So If you guys see anything else or have any suggestion go for it :)
Thanks

Your hands are way too far up his neck, especially over jumps. For jumps that small you only need to put your hands a few inces up his neck.

You have a forward seat on the flat, so do I, but try to sit back. Such a forward seat gets you in trouble later on.

You also don't need to come so far out of the saddle for these jumps, just kind of bend at your hips.

Good luck and cute pony!!

I am in no way a pro or anywere near it but I think for the height you are jumping you are too far up your horses neck .

Ya I put my hand forward alot cause I'm so afraid t catch him in the teeth ! My coach says I also need to let my horse come to me and not me go to my horse but im not sure how to break that habit. Tho I only started jumping last november and was off for the winter so hopefuly I'll be able to fix my position.

Your lower leg is slipping back and, as you noticed, your weight isn't in your heels. A lot of two-point at walk, trot, and canter should help with that. Your release is exaggerated but if you started jumping last November, since you are pretty new to it I think over-releasing is better than catching your horse in the mouth, something you seem to be aware of, which is great! You may want to begin to shorten your release slightly, however, so you don't have to fix that habit farther on down the road. On the flat (unless those pictures were taken while jumping) you may want to lengthen your stirrups a couple holes- you always want to ride with longer stirrups on the flat and then shorten them for jumping. Your upper body is a bit too far forward even for hunt seat on the flat, so focus on stretching up through your core and chest. Really focus as well on wrapping your legs around the horse- you seem to be pinching with your knees a bit. You are always looking up, so great job on that- I'm still trying to break that habit :). Your horse is absolutely adorable by the way- he looks so sweet!

Try lengthening your stirrups on the flat. They are way too short. Also what the others said about your release.

But I LOVE YOUR HORSE!!! O.O
