Yeah, just sit deep in the saddle & wait for him to jump- he can take care of the jumps for you. Press your legs down & wait. Also, remember to look ahead of the jump & not on it. It's a mistake, a lot of us do it!
Thankyou so much for the critique. The things said are actually helpful and thank you for trying to explain what to do. I'll have videos of us tomorrow hopefully I can put up for critique...and ill definitely employ the technigques you guys just mentioned! Thankyou so so much
I agree with everything that's been said..
But, to help you to determine the take off stride, try setting up a pole, one stride later a small cross, and then two strides a vertical. This will enable you to feel your horses stride, and help your position.
