    Jumping critique! =]

    My pony is new to jumping and used to be a trail horse. She has been jumping for about six months. She still has some steering issues but has been doing alot better with leads and giving to the bit. I've taken her to a couple schooling shows and she has done pretty well.

    I've been riding for 5 years but only jumping for around a year. I've jumped two foot three inch but compete at 18" - 2'. I major issues in my form are that my leg doesnt stay far enough underneath me (chair seat) and I typically fold well enough at the hip but not enogh at the knee.

    Let me know what else you see =]

    Yes, you are definitely bracing in your stirrups...you can especially see that in your second pic. Also, you are jumping forward out of your saddle. You are two pointing over the pommel of your saddle...you need to sink into the center of your saddle instead of jumping out of it. Also, I would release with your hands a bit more...but you look good! Cute horse too ...good luck!
