Red face how to get better jumping control??

Im beginning to learn jumping. Im using the Internet to help me couse I ride icelandics that usually don't jump. My dear has learnt to jump free and yesterday I tried to jump "on the back". I really didn't do it right couse I goed too soon of the saddle or too late, and allways too late gifing the lash. My go-down was better but how can I know when I should go off the seat?

Im really not knowing how to do this

I think that you should just let your body flow with the horse over the jump. Don't really think about it because then you will be going to soon just think about your horse and getting over the jump so then you should be fine :)

Let the horse close the angle of your hip for you and you won't be either ahead or beind.

Yeah pretty much what everyone else said. I'm assuming your jumping very small, and if so you really shouldn't be moving much at all. Just give your hands up the neck a little and everything else will come naturally. If you try to put yourself in the position, it doesnt really work. Let the horse put you there. Just release.

Start off with poles on the floor and try to count your last 3 strides. When you can get these correstly then start jumping that way you should be able to tell when you need to fold
