I’ve been having lessons, upon lessons, upon lessons, and yet while I’m jumping, I’m not getting any fold from the hips or hover over the saddle to get the perfect position. At 39, am I too old to get it? Do I need hypnotherapy to erase this habit? I’m getting increasingly fed up that I can’t do it coming into a jump. I’m chuffed to pieces that I’m now competing, but I want to crack this position although I’m desperately unsure how to.”
