^ And some of us are going so dang fast with so many jumps ahead of us that sometimes we don't think about being "hunter perfect"

Shouldn't you be getting some lessons? If you don't teach your horse the right way, it's hard to correct it. My friend who's on the IEA team is going to help me train my Western horse to jump, so I'll let you know the proper form when I learn it:)

I really like your position, the only two things I would suggest is giving ur horse their head/neck a little bit more with a little bigger release and push ur heels down. Other than that its quite lovely

Ill suggest one other thing that I see you do that most people do- you squeeze with ur knee instead of ur calf sometimes that is why ur leg swings back, work on that a bit and u'll b perfect :)

This one is pretty good

The idea is you want to be centered over your horse's center of balance.
Anne Kursinsk's Riding clinic book is a fantastic place to start learning about those things.
