No I don't think you're over folding at all :)

We have those same fillers (or VERY similar) think they are about 2ft3

Lovely pony. :D
I don't think the fold is overdone, but maybe work on keeping your leg on the girth and that will pull your bum to the back of the saddle natually, making your upper body move down and off your pony's neck a bit , which will make the fold look a bit less exaggerated. Just a chain of events, but good work, looking good. :)

thanks i find it hard to keep my leg on the girth line she goes so fast i have to make the best of it when im in the air lol. she really pushes herself when she jumps so it unseats me somtimes i dno if any1 else has that feeling:confused:

Haha believe me I've had that problem a lot! Pretty much it use to be my biggest bad habbit. My horse has a very poppy jump and cracks his back over the jump, making it rather difficult to keep my leg on the girth, I've just done weeks of grids, no sturrips, and constantly doing single jumps consentrating only on my leg, then adding more and more jumps till I can go through a course without having my leg swing back. Also make sure you are not gripping with your knees, I use to do that a lot. It just took time and plenty of effort, but I'm sure if you work on it, it will do wonders! :D

I know it helped me loads! :D
Good Luck!!! =)

thanks everyone just 1 more question :D do you think... theres more room for the jump to go up higher on the 5th photo or i should just stick to that hight. i don't want to push her that jump is about a big 2'6 edgeing 2'9 we measured it today. the biggest course of jumps she has done is 2'9 but she has jumped a single jump at 3'3 !:D
