Technically you look lovely in your form but realistically you look tense and it shows in your and your horse's expressions.

It is very subtle but you have some tenseness and nervousness in your shoulders and upper back, and your facial expression shows concern which I see in your horse's face and ears as well. One ear back listening to you but the other ear is to the side as if he's unsure if he's listened properly or done this right. He doesn't seem to have that relaxed eager look about him but one that is also slightly concerned as if he is (and I am sure he is) reading your nervousness. I recognize this because I battled this with my horse the past year and finally got to where we were both relaxed at the end of the season - and it made a huge difference. While technically we were okay, realistically we both were tense/stressed/concerned and it made for a more challenging ride because we both ended up overthinking nearly everything!

For the height you are at you both look quite lovely. I'd say just relax and remember to breath and the result will be a more fun ride for you both! You both look great.

thank. To say we were tense was an understatment. He had that classic hotblooded TB. Mixed up with mental probs. XC was crazy that weekend too. They tested him for drugs becaude it was an international show or something. Random drug testing... YEAH RIGHT!! We placed fifth though!
