a lot of times when a rider sits down to early its because they jump ahead [even slightly] on take off, so make sure you are not jumping ahead. And like mie said make sure you are staying down in your leg on landing. You can also grab mane half way up the horses neck and then you will feel the moment your upper body tries to go to far back because you will pull on the mane.

Great idea! I never thought about the holding onto the mane - thanks for adding that gypsy!

I just talk to myself on the way over the fence. I tell myself to release, absorb, land, and sit. The land step keeps me up one extra stride. I also sit down too soon.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Grabbing mane definitely helps. I also had this problem (more-so over smaller jumps).
