Learning two-point English jumping position at our equestrian summer camp

This summer Mega Arte campers got introduced to the two-point English jumping position. See the video with Piper and her sister, experienced riders and camp assistants, demonstrating two-point position jumping.

The term “two-point” was introduced by George Morris in the 1970s. A rider sitting in a three-point position has contact with his horse through his seat and his two legs. Once a rider assumes a more forward jumping position his seat is elevated out of the saddle and he only has two points of contact: his two legs, placed against horse sides.
