Hello there! I came up riding bareback, I eat no stirrups November for breakfast, and I love me some seat bones. Riding off them, that is. I am dressage lady, hear me roar! However... put me in two point at the top of a jump and I'm a disaster. It has gotten better, don't get me wrong. I can ride most horses to a fence now in half seat and not mess it up most of the time, but my EQ is rarely enviable. And at anything over 2'11 it's really not ideal at all. To say the least. We started working on exaggerated auto releases today. I nearly died. A lot. Truth it, I lost my balance in that position, fell back into the cantle and upset the hot mare I was riding, who nearly murdered me. It was not pretty. And I tried, really hard. Literally burst into tears out of sheer frustration. I've worked so hard on my O/F equitation. I trot grueling lap after lap in my stirrup irons. I take lessons with a good coach who is probably as stumped by my lack of ability over fences as I am. It seems like I have a massive gap in my balance that is suddenly being uncovered, and I am at a loss. Jumpers - what am I missing here? Any advice for staying in true balance over the fence (and not just surviving it)?
