    Well I would totally understand it if your horse is a TB because they tend to rush and over jumpp all the fence , (well at least the TB in my scool )

    Once, I had the same prob , what I did is , you have to hold on with your calfs it's easier , like your legs will be kinda turned out ...

    Or your stirrups might be a little long or short =D

    Ps: i'm a rider not a trainer so that works with me I don't know about other people =)

    I just started jumping after taking 6 years off from it! Comparing pictures of now to when I was 16 my leg placement is AWFUL!!! I can't keep my legs at the girth line to save my life and as a result get pitched forward if Legacy takes a wrong step.

    I'm also over jumping for her which needs to be fixed. I'm solid at a half seat and 2 point in all gaits except jumping. Everything I've apparently learned in the past has gone out the window.

    I'm so used to my previous trainers yelling " EYES UP HEELS DOWN!" right at the jump so when I was showing it was burned into my brain. I need my current trainer to do that but she keeps forgetting.

    Just a little update (i couldnt get a video sorry!) but I've been jumping bareback simply because im too lazy to tack up LOL but it has been helping wonders. Not only is it helping me build leg muscle, but it so FUN. Also, I've bumped up the jump to a vertical, and im definitely going to start doing two point work because I can tell im relying on my hands. THANK YOU ALL!
