You look like you're doing what I do when I jump - over-riding it ie getting ahead of the horse (you're in jumping position before he's started to take off) I have no idea what to do about it tho'

Its hard to tell because I'm not sure how many seconds are between each picture, but if the frames are back-to-back, try keeping your butt out of the tack a little longer. It looks like you're sitting down before he lands. Let him land before you sit and then he wont scoot out from under your tush to fast :)

I love how he pops his knees up for you! What a thoughtful jumper!

No critique from me. I suggest you spending money on a helmet.

Cool horse you kida have a chair seat in the canter. Try sitting in the front of your saddle. Then while jumping rock your hips back with your leg. Your a little hunched and your hands are on his neck. On the landing in the first set I think you slammed on his back. Hold the 2pt. more if you do it to much and if hes old it could end up a lond time thing....

Try to pull your leg under you more so you are on your plumb line. Also try to haave good posture. Also try to get off your horses neck so much in your two point.

sorry i'm not trying to be rude- but how can i be on his neck when my hands are on either side of it? where am i on his neck? also, it could seem like that because i have white gloves on him and he's light coloured?

i have a bad habit of sitting back early over a fence- tips?
