    I agree with finding a instructer/trainer/coach if you don't have one yet. And if it's possible, get someone to film you. You can really see what you're doing wrong when you watch yourself riding. I also watch YouTube videos to get inspiriation from. :) my fave youtubers are JazzCiceroCasper and eddiesgun(some number that I can't remember).

    Yes a good coach is worththeir weight in gold...

    --ride to the base of the fence and sit UP
    -- Think Chin up rather than eye up... (helps me)
    --legs into hands don't drop your horse with your hands in front of a fence
    --a good song to sing to keep a rhythm is baa baa black sheep or twinkle twinkle little star
    -- don't under estimate the power of positive visualisation
    --Theres nothing wrong with having an ekk strap
    -- And as above the mane is your friend...
    -- If you have trouble with where you release to make a plait in the mane... and go to that point
    -- Let the horse come up to you rather than you folding to it...
    --remember most run outs/refusals are rider related - think about what you have done....

    LOL theres a few - but every horse is different and will need to be ridden differently - so mch easier having someone on the ground helping out...

    Take a look at this post: Form Over Fences

    And...here's another HUGE tip that goes along with letting the horse jump to you:

    When jumping, your hip angle should CLOSE and push your Buttocks BACK towards the rear of the saddle. Your seat, in this two point position should JUST clear the saddle by an inch or two. When the horse jumps his natural thrust will make sure that you are high enough out of the saddle for the size jump.

    Nobody EVER told me this. I had 2 trainers who both had many successful riders...or so I thought since neither of them ever cared to tell me this tid bit of info from the beginning. Who knows what I would think if I saw their students jump now. I thought a release was to OPEN my hip angle and lay on the horse's neck to give slack and it is not. That is a common mistake.

    Good I'm glad. Hopefully you will be lightyears ahead of where I was in the beginning for a loong time, constantly getting left behind and I didn't know why! At least your trainer tried to explain it to you. Good luck!
