Two-point position explained

I know for sure that she said it was for jumping but I didn't understand it. If you know anything or anyone ...Hi.

Hi. My name is Brittany and my neighbor told me about the 2-point position and I didn’t quite get what she was talking about. I know for sure that she said it was for jumping but I didn’t understand it. If you know anything or anyone that knows something about it I would appreciate if you e-mailed me back. Thanks for your time.

Hi Brittany:

Two-point position refers to your basic jumping position, where your backside is out of the saddle, and you are standing slightly in the stirrups. It’s called two-point, because the only points where you are in contact with the horse’s body is your two legs. A three-point position is when your posterior is in the tack, making a third point of contact.

Hope that helps!
