Keep your leg on the saddle. Your knee is completely off the saddle, if your horse did a buck jump, landed with a stumble, took off after the jump, you would have a hard time staying on.. So keep your leg on the saddle! You don't need to squeeze the breath out of your horse, just a gentle hold.

You do look good for a self taught jumper. (:
You REALLY need to wear a helmet, and shove your heels down a TON. Shove your butt back. I agree with gypsygirl, lower it down to cross-rails and ground poles. Good luck. (:

I'm a cowgirl. I break horses, I wear jeans and boots and I play in the mud. (:

point your toes in, keep your legs back a bit farther and don't let them flap.
Also, WEAR A HELMET!!!

You might want to close your hip a little more. Good job looking up, I have seen so many people looking down over jumps. You did say that you usually wear a helmet so I won't hipe on that. You say you ride Bareback a lot? COOL!!!! I love riding bareback!!

Oh and your horse is Gorgeous!!

really?? I don't think she does at all, the jump is really small, if it were larger should would need to close her hip angle more but over a jump of this size you really don't need to close your hip angle that much IMO.

If you don't mind me asking, what state do you live in? I may be able to point you towards a trainer(:

I found these two certified eventing trainers on the USEA website. I'm not sure how far south you are, but these two are more south than north. So, if they're not too far away, I'd say to check them out!
