Nope, your wording was perfect. What you described is exactly what I was talking about. You get in your jumping position as your horse BEGINS her jump. It's your horse's jump that puts you in your jumping position. Getting into it before will make a horse stop, especially if you're on her neck.

Excellent post EventinginMI! Ditto to everything said there!

Sorry my wording sucks. I've taken a few lessons but not as many as I should so sorry if I sound stupid, I was kind of hoping you wouldget what I mean without menhavbg to look up dictionary terms. Eh.

I know what you mean, so I'll take the advice.

Bingo! Stay OFF her neck until your in the air. don't lean at it. keep your body back, leg, take off 2-point. No one wants someone taking a nap on their neck when they are trying to get into the air, wait till your in the air. I've leased horse that refuse whenever you lean at the jump. Sitting up and back is the best thing you can do. And when you get deep to a jump, keeping your body back helps support them through the crappy distance and makes it look like you are fine with that decision. it's when the person leans at the jump when going deep that people say "crappy distance, she didn't mean to do that".
