    Looks pretty good to me! Yeah, your lower leg has slipped back a hair, but your heels are still anchored and you're not pinching with your knee in a big way, so it still works. Your back is parallel to your horse's back which suggests the correct angle. You're looking ahead and giving your horse a generous release. I wish I had a pic of me jumping like that!

    The flat pic shows puppy dog wrists. It looks like you were just doing a little communicating with your horse, but just pointing it out. Hopefully other will ring in.

    I think you look very much "with your horse". You are not jumping ahead ( which I think it's the hardest thing to do when jumping) and your crotch is hovering above the saddle. You also give and release your hands over the fence. You head is up and you look at the next fence.

    Gypsy's legs kinda dangled over the fence. Her knees are pointing up so that's good.

    How long have you been riding? I hope I will progress to a great rider like you! :)

    I am not a jumper, so can't critique but I know what my eye likes, and I think you two look beautiful together. You two look like a team. Love it!

    I think you two looked very good. I could not see any problem in postition at all. I couldn't jump that well in my dreams!

    While I want to see you bring your lower leg forward, you seem to have a nice secure position. One that won't be easily shaken loose. You are on the right track, here.

    The one flat picture worries me, though. You seem to have restriicted the horse too much, causing her to duck behind the bridle to escape the pressure (rollkur like). I hope you don't think this represents a proper frame. She needs more forward, and less restrictive contact. The other flat photo shows a good hunter-like frame, but for dressage, she needs more forward and more constructive contact.
    I hope this all makes sense to you.

    Yeah it does allison, thanks !

    In the picture where she is a bit behind ( which she tends to do a bit anyways to evade) I was counter flexing her a bit. Like I said in my first post she was being really quite bad. In no way do I think going behind the verticle is a good thing

    So the vet I work for came and looked at gypsy. I was worried she may be hock sore because that tends to present secondarily in back pain. But luckily (i know that sounds bad, but way preferable to needing hocks done) she just needs her back adjusted. So she will get that at the end of the month. Until then I have some massages to do on her back.
