Like I have said in my previous posts, now that it is the end of the show season, it's time to work ourselves to death This is the most determined and confident I think I have ever been, and if I can get rides to the barn enough, I'm going down 6 times a week (one of those is a private lesson and one is a trail ride a the end of the week as a relaxation thing) So, as you can see, me and my horse are working HARD!
Now to the question:
Lately, I have been sitting back too early over the jumps. When we jump 2'6 and under, I feel like I'm overexaggerating my position over the jump and it feels awkward, but when we jump 3' and up it feels natural to be in that position. Over the small stuff I feel like I stand in my stirrups and it feels really weird. I really need to work on my overall position including: stronger legs, bigger releases, and not sitting back too early. Do you have any tips to help any of these problems, mainly sitting on his back too early?
