You might practice holding the two-point at a walk or trot without jumping. Maybe even doing it when you're not on the horse so it's easier for you to figure out where you need to correct your posture without also having to focus on the horse. I know it helps me as a beginning jumper really get the feel for it.

Everyone seems to be saying all the right things but I don't really see anyone saying something about your hands( I think I saw one person say something but i'm just going to say this anyways(: ). From the photos it looks like your hands are very close to your crotch. You want your hands to be up off the horse. Elbows bent, fingers in (no pinkies out like a tea party), and hands slightly off the horse(; I hope this helps! And I hope your two-point improves!(:

yes that helps a lot! Im pretty sure the main reason I got all slouchy and my hands were down was because I was tenseing and scared to fall! I've only been jumping for 1 year so far but I want to go to the next level! And I think I might just stay where I am for one more year!

Thank you all again!

Perhaps you could just hold off on the jumping for a while and take some flat lessons. Just until you are confident with your position and going over trotting poles.

Actually I have been thinking about that too! And I think that's actually what im going to do! Right now im trying to convince my friend to jump sable for me, while I just take my time and do my training all over again. Actually the more I write this the more I think its the best way to go! So yeah I think im going to do that! Thank you guys so much for everything!
