Ok, so last time I posted a pic, I was told to be more out of the saddle, and to work on my release. My release and my 'out of the saddle' still aren't very good, but I'm working on it. :) Please judge new pic, and please, please say anything I can work on! Thanks!!!

I actually like the first pic better.... Not posed and artificial. You don't have to be close to the neck, just the angles close based on how much jump you get and what keeps you in balancce with the motion. Your leg is right where it needs to be and you let your horse throw you out of the saddle and close your angles for you based on his motion, instead of jumping ahead as has become the customary approach to jumping but not as correct or effective. Could you have been a hair more out of the saddle, maybe, but the other stuff is right where it should be. At least that's my opinion. :)

Thanks! I absolutely agree with you about people jumping ahead, somehow it's become the 'hunter fashion'. hahaha

I second almost liking the first better. In the second picture, your leg has slipped back, making you less stable. I do like your upper body though- you have brought your shoulders beck. MYbe overjumping a little ... but that's pretty common...
