Your toes are pointing out ward. And you are too far up on your horses neck with your hands, they look like they may be resting there? But I am not sure. And elbows in!!

Your horse is an extension of you.

Thanks! I agree! My hands are WAY to far up! And I think my toes are pointed out, but I really can't tell cause its to blurry. And I don't think I'm leaning on her, but I really don't know. Thanks!

I really like the way you are looking up in the direction you want to go and your back is very straight! Its hard to tell from the picture but I think you could sink down in your heels a bit more.

Thanks LynnF. I know I do need to sink my weight in a little more, thats just not the main thing I think about while jumping. For some reason, it feels weird and uncomfortable if I don't have my back straight. I used to duck a lot and I just stopped randomly. Thanks!
