This will help you to keep your leg in place, in the event of an accident the thin boot lace will snap.
I've used this method on several pupils and it has worked very well.
In the meantime work on your basic jumping position with a very light two point, almost three point position, making sure that you maintain this position over the fence, in other words don't do anything but sit still and follow with your hands.
I've never heard of that, but it sounds really helpful actually! I ride in 3-point most of the time when I'm just working on a light flat workout- like half hour rides or something.
