Jumping Position
1 Attachment(s)
So, I have a tendency to really tuck my elbows to my body. To me, it just doesn't look right. I was wondering if anyone could sort of critique and give me ideas on how to fix it. I need solutions :)
My mare is also fairly green. She free jumped prior to buying her, but I'm the first person she's ever carried across a jump.

Personally I think you're looking really good! Your elbows are not actually tucked by your sides as much as you think. I hate seeing people throwing their arms and reins up the horses neck! Your reins are long enough to not have to do that and your horse is able to stretch her neck and make a nice shape over the jump. If you feel like you have to then just move your hands up a couple inches as that is all you need.

And very nice leg and foot position by the way :)
