Dressage looks great, wish my horse would move like that! For the jumping, the only real crit I have is to get your toes in a little more. You also seem to be a bit too far out of the saddle but it might just be in that one picture. (I know position over the jumps isn't really that important in eventing, but I've done hunters for years and am just not switching to eventing, so just my opinion.)

Anyway, you guys looks great overall. Your horse is STUNNING by the way :)

Worth The Wait <3

your dressage looks great! there is just one little thing that i can see (and it's because its my problem too!) and thats that your hands are turned down quite a bit. you want your thumbs facing the sky a little bit more, other than that, super cute horse!

You look like a very good, capable rider and I love your horse :)

Let me just offer a tiny bit of advice that I'm working on. You seem to be jumping ahead, which everyone knows is baaaad juju. Try to stay back and wait. Your horse will lift you out of the saddle. Ride like there's no jump there. Like you're just cantering about. There is no jump. Ignore it.

Otherwise, we get these stiff, odd looking jumps that don't benefit you or your horse and then it's all sad. :(

Happy Eventing!

Your horse is adorable! All I can say is in the 3rd picture you need to push your feet more forward and that should help get your rear more over the saddle. :)
