There are sooo many people out there really mangling jumping , but you make it look like an artform!
You are too nice :) Mouse has certainly come a long way from when I got him off the track at 4 years old. Luckily he doesnt mind ditches and banks(the log wall for reference) his biggest fear is the water but he is getting used to it now. I remember when ever we would have a "not so nice" jumping distance or he knocked a rail, he would just buck to show his "disapproval".
As for my jumping position, thank you! That's my biggest "insecurity" about when I ride so I'm surprised you think I'm that good! I can only wish I become as good as my trainers as well as the peers I ride with. They make me look like a beginner!!!
