I don't post in here really, but as this issue has come to light on my uni team score sheets when i've been competing, I think i'm alright putting it here.
My jumping position is god awful and the more I try the worse it gets I stand up, don't fold, barely give with my hand and can be found taking the poor horses back teeth out sometimes. If I really try I can make sure I give with my hand but then the rest goes to pot. If the horse is on an off stride, I just don't seem to have the reaction to fold or give or anything, I just sit there like a tool. Why can everyone else seem to realise the horse is lifting in front and automatically fold and give?
Tips would be oh so greatly appreciated, on ways to improve my position as well as how to make it more of a muscle response on my part rather than having to think about it all the time.
