Ok, I've been jumping for 3 years, but the first 2 years consisted of just trying to get my pony over the jump. So my position isn't that great. Im slowly getting better, but I would like some tips. How close to my horse's neck should I be? Are my legs supposed to be in the same place as normal riding?? And also, any tips for judging strides before the jump. Sometimes my pony does okay, but alot of times he has to add in a little extra stride to make the jump. One more thing: hands. Where do they go?? I basically taught myself how to jump so I need all the help I can get!
