I don't do jumping, but I think you're leaning too far one way.....can't put my finger on it.

Looks like you are trying harder then the horse =)

They are bad shots to really tell about your position but you are leaning to far forward and you want to move your hands up youhorses neck more
Your leg look ok

Look up! Don't forget the Murphy's Law of jumping. "Look down = fall down". Once you're in the air, the jump is over. Look where you are going next, not at the fence you're jumping. Lower leg looks pretty good. You're seat is behind the pommel which is great. You're not jumping ahead exactly (or your seat would be in front of the pommel) but just try to keep your upper body more upright. You're inclined a little too far forward.

No, you're just enough out of the saddle. I wouldn't change that a bit. If you just open your hip angle, it will put your upper body more upright so your entire body will be properly balanced over your feet. Your legs and abs will have to work harder to keep you more upright without you falling back into the saddle, but it will line things up a little better. Your shoulders should line up with your knees. In those pics, they are in front of them. I think your position from the hips down looks very solid. Just a minor upper body tweak should do wonders.

You're looking down, leaning too far forward, trying too hard.

Relax, wait for your horse to jump.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

k i didn't read what other wrote so sorry if i repeat ...

- look up
- please put a different bit on your horse- you have a bit that is a bit harsh and with you learning how to jump you need to not have a bit that you will not hurt his mouth with
- heels down please :)
- open up your hip angle

if you are in sync with your horse he will life you out of the saddle and you will go with him...

Keep up the good work! :)
