Jumping ?

hey everyone, ive recently been watching a few fei jumping competitions on tv, and reading alot of the jumping topics. i have one wuestion though, ive been jumping for a while but never learnt two point ever, is this an american thing though? because i thought i saw only the americans in the fei competitions using two point, and no one that i ride with knows what two point is? sorry for the long post :)

Hmm...good question. I'm American...yet I've seen people from other countries jumping- & they use 2-point.
How high are you jumping? In certain heights (like a foot or lower), you don't need to really be in a two-point. You can poke your butt out, lol.

Ride more, worry less.

lol sorry for taking long to reply. right now we are jumping 90cm and some 1m, but ive read on some boards that you learn two point before you learn to jump? yea i saw on the fei that some people didnt look like they were out of their saddle, but in the american team it was easily seen? sorry for all the questions

The term itself might be american but if you are jumping, regardless of the height, YOU HAVE to go in 2 point, you just do.

The second you close you hip angle and move forward to follow your horse's movement over the fence-you are in 2 point

ok thanks, so are you in two point just before the jump or quite a while before? thanks
edit: just read another board, and im now thinking its the position over a jump? if it is so we call it jumping position over here lol that could be why i was confused?

The jumping position is pretty much "2 point". All it is, is different terms being used for it. Didn't realise it varied so much from continent to continent

ok thanks some how i got the idea that two point is the position in which you ride around the whole jumping course, not your position over the jump, thanks so much for clearing that up for me

I'm British, and that position with your bum just out of the saddle and whatnot is known as 'jumping position' here, too :) Just different names for the same thing.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

yea all my teachers have been irish or english and they've always called it jumping position so it gets confusing when you hear the different terms
