- - Sitting back?

I've just learned to jump, and ive seen in pictures of people jumping that you put your seat in the saddle by... leaning back? can you please give me an explanation?

Are you wanting to know about a 2-point position? Not sure what you are really asking because you shouldn't be in the saddle when jumping....

you shouldn't be in the saddle when jumping....
That's not true. If that's the case, then many of those GP Jumpers are doing it wrong. Silly them.
To the OP - you don't put your seat in the saddle by leaning back, you put your seat in the saddle by sitting down.
Leaning back, means that the rider is getting behind the motion and going behind the verticle, which creates the rider to get left behind.
I'm not quite sure what it is that you are asking though...........

True enough MIE.... I get in sh!t if my butt is anywhere near the saddle going over a fence in lessons at home. I went to Ireland on a riding vacation last year, and my butt was supposed to be in the saddle....so I did an inbetween. haha.

Oh I've had a private lesson and sorted it all out. Once you do it it makes sense.

Huh. Then I'm facebook friends with 4 famous people! Cool. I think so. :) MIE, you gots to come down and event in Area V sometime! We'd love to hang out, Geofy and I. :)
And you do lean back on drop fences, and when you're going downhill you're usually behind the vertical some. ;)
