I have been jumping for many years however have taken a bit of time off (I'm 7 months pregnant and wasn't jumping for 6 months prior to becoming pregnant) When I was jumping, I was coming off of another long period of time with no riding at all (not just jumping) I have pictures from the last time I was jumping and I can tell you pretty much what I needed to work on. So what I am asking here is how to fix these problems.
My problems of major concern are:
My lower legs swing back over the jump.
My heels could be down further
I lean off to the right (not sure how evident it is in the pictures)
I know that I do not have an issue with looking down or giving a release. In fact I love the fact that I "over" release (I don't really think there is such thing) the few times I have gotten left behind over jumps, I slip my reins and the horse carries on normally. (got to love having an eventing background)
Now I also know a major factor that I dislike is my weight. I am short (5 foot 1 if I'm wearing the right shoes) and I'm heavy. I'm really top heavy and I know that I tend to be forward. (I'd rather be ahead of the motion than behind though) I've been really fit and I've been up to 4'6" in jumping....over 6 years ago. So needless to say, I need to get back into shape and work on my issues while doing so. Please if you comment on this post, do not say anything crude about my weight. I am aware of this issue and as soon as I have my baby I will be getting back into riding two horses a day (which will help me loose the baby weight and any other weight)
Okay so now onto picture. I might be able to find a few videos too.
Okay so the pictures aren't the best quality or view for making suggestions but I still think that its possible. lol. I also realize that it is very stupid to ride without a helmet, even more so to jump without one. So I am looking for advice to fix the issues I am having. Please be nice, I do not claim to be a good rider and I am looking for honest help.
