Yea we had a moment of "oh mom you meant this fence" I think it's a brown one in SJ. It didn't seem so bad while riding, but the photos look really bad. He doesn't have a natural good form, but it's improved since last year.
Not all Hunter riders do the lay on the neck thing... it's all just bad coaching. Your catch riders and top riders are some of the best riders I've met, they get perfect striding, a round jump and a pretty overall picture all over 3' + fences. But it takes the right coach and training to do so. I give props to my first trainer making us ride without stirrups all winter. Probably why I'm also comforable with the longer length. But I def need to shorten them for galloping.
