First of all, that rider is not riding in a jumper class, nor is that a very big jump. It is, most likely a HUNTER round. That said, the riders position is of no consequence at all, unless it is interfering with the horse enough to affect his form over fences. The horse looks great, even with the horrible equitation.n
It is sad to me to see this stuff in the hunter ring, though. It makes all of their students, who are likely less talented, think it's OK to ride like this. I hate it. That's one of the many reasons I never rode in the hunter divisions.
As for Annette, she won some high profile classes, but was not one of the most winning riders. She had some truly epic fails in big classes, too.
