it kinda looks like your feet are a little to far back

Try to stay off your horses neck, put your butt more in the saddle, heels down, leg closer to the girth. Maybe shorter stirrups but I cant see from this angle. Oh and try to get a helmet as soon as possible. Cute horse

thanx. i loe him to death but i'm afraid i might have messed his legs up by jumping at the age of 3. i have a post on horse training and someone said that i might have messed his legs up. i'm a little scared now. yeah my stirrups are too long i forgot to fix tem after working on the flat.

don't worry I started jumping my old pony when he was like 3 1/2 it wasn't anything big maybe 18" to 2' at the max. and when he was 5 and 6 he was doing 3'6 jumpers and i'm now doing him in 2'9-3' hunters for my trainer. Your horse should be fine as long as you didn't jump him huge everyday.

heyy good job overall... once you shorten your stirrups a lot (like 3 holes) the rest of your form problems will most likely fix themselves. your hip engle will close slightly, you can jump with your horse without standing in your stirrups, and yeaaa good job overall!
