Yes its a very horrible habbit of mine because of the last trainer I had at another barn she ask us to two point 2-6 strides before a single jump, Now I understand keeping the two point jump to jump but at a single jump doesn't really make sense. I must say though I have incredible balance and so I have yet to fall off from the leaning to forward lol, although I dont wanna jinx it

Haha yea, its a major habbit of mine :P Ill have to work on it more, I didnt realize I was still leaning considering my mare likes to take the jump to quickly if you two point to early and I didnt feel it at all

I like how your are riding after the fence. You go nice and straight after the second fence instead of falling apart after the fence and letting the horse collapse into the turn. Straight is almost as important as the jump itself, so good to see you are working on all the basics and not just the actual jumping.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

All I can really say is your hands do look very tense. Also your shoulders, if you relax your hands you'll be able to roll your shoulders back and be able to sit more upright instead of leaning forward inbetween jumps. Keep at it, it'll all come soon :) Well done, and you have a lovely pony :)

Thank-you it was also very cold that day so it could have a lot to do with why my hands were tense. But thank-you for the tip
