Question Sitting back?

I've just learned to jump, and I've seen in pictures of people jumping that you put your seat in the saddle by... leaning back? Can you please give me an explanation?

Are you wanting to know about a 2-point position? Not sure what you are really asking because you shouldn't be in the saddle when jumping....

you shouldn't be in the saddle when jumping....

That's not true. If that's the case, then many of those GP Jumpers are doing it wrong. Silly them.


To the OP - you don't put your seat in the saddle by leaning back, you put your seat in the saddle by sitting down.

Leaning back, means that the rider is getting behind the motion and going behind the verticle, which creates the rider to get left behind.

I'm not quite sure what it is that you are asking though...........

And you do lean back on drop fences, and when you're going downhill you're usually behind the vertical some. ;)
