Stiff/straight elbows x(
My hands should be less "leaning", the thumbs aren't quite on top but not really piano hands either.
Heels a bit back I think.. I'm not sure though..

HaHa well were do I begin?
My faults are:
with the horse I have now he barges at the jumps and I tense up and sit back before the jump which your suppossed to do but then I stay back when I go over the jump and makes my position terrible and jabs my horse in the mouth and starts him throwing his head!
My heels all ways go up when I give the aids and my canter aids are really failing I always try to get it from arising trot even though I now I shouldnt I just can't keep down in my seat and then he goes into a really fast trot then canter and then I have to use all my strength to keep him in canter because its so unbalanced!:Llol

I have the stupidist habbit of tightining the reins a few strides from the first jump (it drives my instructor NUTS. Lol) I think its because Trooper hates jumping length reins so its easier to tighten them up last minute than to deal with him trying to pull them out of my hands.

I also have problems loosining my hips during to the canter. My instrucor says I have a "true equestrian" sitting trot but I can't to it at the canter!

Maire995: That's strange that you lean back before a jump. I know most people lean forward before a jump, but not back.

With me, sometimes I have to lean back ALOT to try and keep Night Heat slow through a jumping course...

Thanks to nirvana, I just remembered another fault of mine: I tend to ride with fairly short reins, because I am all too used to riding very forward horses.

-i ride with really short stirrups...because im really tall.
-i love to just ride in this wierd like halfseat/2pointish position.its wierd and people are always like wth what are you doing....its comfortable
