Horse appears to be a little heavy in the bit and the rider by opening the reins has blocked the energy cycle.
Nice frame but try and engage the back end more. Looks like an older photo based on the clothing and tack. The rider should turn the toe in more, allowing the calf to have more contact on the horse.

Nice open stride. Rider is soft with the reins so horse is not as round as I would like.
The horse is gorgeous but needs some more work. I would try and collect the horse, asking for more of a frame and back end propulsion.

Rider too far ahead but good leg position. Horse is quite tidy.
Overall a very nice turn out with a very pretty paint. The rider is over jumping slightly, which might be fixed by raising the stirrups a hole. The rider is executing the crest release very well and has a pretty back that is flat.
JustDressageIt--post7 Horse--Highland Dancer
75
Knees are not neat although they are more or less aligned but too open. Good stretch over jump but the rider has over jumped (too far forward).
Slightly jumping ahead with the legs slipping back, taking away the base of support. The horse's knees are a little sloppy, but I think it is because he is "insulted" by the tiny jump!
1dog3cats17rodents--post 42 Horse--Ben
79
Horse jumped too soon and lost the bascule. Would have like a higher knee lift.
Although the picture is small, I can see that the distance is very long. However, the rider didn't get left behind and is in a nice center of balance. The leg could be a little tighter and a larger release but nice overall

Interesting shot. Legs are now in the downward position as the jump is nearly done but there should have been more bascule evident
Very nice jump, however Kai's legs appear to hang ever so much in the back which could make it look like he might have dropped a pole with just the one picture. Other than that beautiful.
The timing is a little off but the horse put in a nice effort. Although this is jumpers, the rider has a wonderful heel!
JustDressageIt--post7 Horse--Buffy

Hard to see just what will happen here. Horse is alert and rider appears to be ready for anything. LOL
Very nice pic, you are alert and looking forward as is your horse. Your horse is lifting that leg to make sure he gets over that X and doesn't appear to be lazily walking over it. Very hard to pick between you and first.
Absolutely adorable! Very large release which is perfect for this level! Rider certainly will go far
Quixotic--post 33 Horse--Simon Says
93
Very nice. Horse is alert, nice knee position. Riders leg has slipped back a little.
Even knees and a nice distance. The rider looks to be in control but should raise her stirrup one hole to create a better leg/ jumping position.
Your horse has a nice pop in the front and you both appear to be alter and working together. What got you first with me is you appear to be jumping at an angle which raises the level of difficulty and athleticism.
Quixotic--post 33 Horse--Lodestar
71
Not happy with the hanging and tucked under legs and looks like he could easily just touch a top pole to bring it down. Rider position looks very nice.
Your horses legs appearing to bump or chip the fence. That made you lose athletic points with me.
The horse seems very sweet but challenged over the jump. It's front feet are brushing the pole, and I would not be surprised if it fell.

Should have been a little higher at this point in the jump but nice knee position. Nice give by the rider.
Although the timing is a little off, the horse shows a lot of scope. The rider is doing an awesome crest release that is allowing the horse to use all of its neck.
Rider:- Very nice auto release. Heels are down and rider is looking up at her next fence. Flat back, leg is under her, but pinching just a tad with her knees.
Horse:- Unfortunately can't see the entire body in this picture. He has an alert expression on his face and appears to enjoy his job. Nice tight knees, and clearing the fence quite well, not overly scopey. Using his back well over the fence.
PaintLegacey RR--post 23 Horse--BuggABoo

Horse is very flat over the jump. This height should have shown more bascule. Front legs are open and hanging.
The picture is small but I can see that the horse is jumping way to the right of the jump. It looks as if the distance was a little awkward and the horse is "bunny hopping" over the jump
Picture is too small to be judged accurately
Rider:
Nice form over the fence, although appears to be ducking a tad. Nice release. No helmet, big no-no in the ring. Legs appear to be nicely under her. Can't tell any more from the photo.
Horse:
- Due to the timing of this picture, it is not possible to judge the horse's legs very well. Obviously he has cleared this fence with ease, and appears scopey. Knees look even and as though they would have been tight at the top of the fence. Nice alert expression.. I think
Placing: Second, mostly due to the quality of the picture.
Quixotic--post 33 Horse--Lodestar
79
Horse does not have a good knee front leg position and I would be unsure to jump him higher. Sometimes when the horse throws the front end over the jump the legs have no place to go.
The horse is close to the standard and looks to be trying its hardest. The horse looks like it might be straining a little to clear the jump and may need to be taught how to use its full body.
Rider:
The one thing that jumps out at me is the rider's leg. It is wrapped around the horse, but not in a way that is really functional towards helping the horse over the fence; it appears she is gripping with the heel near the horse's girth. Release is nice, as are the rider's arms. The rider is looking towards her next fence.
Horse:
- Really hanging one knee, not tight through the knees at all. Appears to enjoy jumping, just needs more work on it. Looks to be using his neck and back through the jump.
Placing: Unfortunately last due to the knees.

Rider is tipped forward a little and would have liked to see a little more flexibility in the shoulder elbow wrist position
Overall looks nice. The first thing that stuck out was it seems that your hands are curling under themselves a bit. I would like to see a straighter line of contact with the mouth with thumbs up a bit more. You look like you are placing weight into your heels well, but I would like your leg to be moved back just a smidge more.
Pinto Pony--post 5 Horse--Kai

Very nice clean picture overall. Good body position.
Bonus points for your horses white actually being white :P Your hands seem to be coming in a bit...I would like to see them a bit more apart. You're turned out nicely and looking where you're going. Good job.
juju--post 19 Horse--juju
68.5
Slightly tipped forward and arms look to be a little too straight. Would have liked to have seen a little more bend in the elbow.
The first thing I noticed is that it seems like your hands are too far up on the reins and ahead of the pommel of your saddle. I think that is contributing to the feeling of you being tense in this shot. I'd like to see him get a bit more rein while maintaining contact. Compared to what I am used to, you seem to be quite forward, but that seems to be the style these days so just mentioning.
7ponies--post 32 Horse--Gandy
64
Look where you are going. The free hand should be resting on your thigh and the rein hand should be more in front of the saddle. All else nice.
First thing is eyes up! It seems like you are trying to keep her going straight and she is trying to eat the camera, however normally your hands should be lower in front of the saddle and straight with her neck. I would like to see your free hand hanging instead of bent Ė I think it presents a neater picture. Your weight is nicely in your heels and you have nice posture.
1dog3cats17rodents--post 42 Horse--Raider

Too far tipped forward resulting in an arched back. This may be the reason the legs are a bit too forward also.
You are looking where you are going and your hands seem to be nice and giving. I'd like to see your legs back a bit more.

Overall nice but the rider's back is slightly roached. The leg has slid back and the rider is very close to the horses back. I would suggest that she tries and auto release.

I really can't see too much in this photo. You seem to have slumped a bit in your upper body, but I like your leg position for the most part. You seem to be looking where you are going but again, can't really see too much.
Lower score mostly for not being able to tell much)

Photo quality is pretty good, decent form for both horse & rider, good job bareback
Your leg has slipped forward. Heels look nice though. I like your hands in this photo and your upper body looks very nice.
happygoose123--post 13 Horse--Banjo
76
Looks to be a pretty good job at bareback w/ just halter. Horse seems hollowed out though and not relaxed
This is a kind of hard angle for me to judge, so bare with me. Your hands look nice and quiet, but seem to be rotating in the piano hands direction (Though, I see you are riding with lead ropes, so that may very well be why). I'd like legs back a little bit more ideally, but overall you look really nice.

Dressage- Horse to be judged on suitability for dressage. Rider to be judged on position and effectiveness.


19)Division A....lower level dressage with basic W/T/C
ENTRIES


Pinto Pony--post 5 Horse--Kai
83
Not a medium trot but the head is in a nice spot for a lower level horse. Not quite tracking up but this is what I would expect to see at the training level. Nice rider position.
Rider:
- Very nice tall posture
- Torso could come back a tad to be in line with hip and heel
- Nice shoulders, could maybe come back just the tiniest bit
- Nice arms, elbows is bent allowing a straight line from elbow to bit.
- While rider's heel is in line with the toe, I wouldn't want her cramming her foot in the stirrup. I would like to see her sink just a little more weight into the heel, as if little sandbags were attached to the bottom.
Horse:
- Is not tracking up
- Appears to be heavy on the bit, that needs to be engaged into contact, instead of lean
- If the rider could get him to engage the hind end and really drive him up from behind, this picture could be a million times better.
Wild Spot--post 11 horse--Wildey
80
Horse is showing nice forward reach. May be a little stiff in head position as the riders arms are too straight. The rider has a good position overall but the legs could be a little farther back under the rider.
Rider:
Rider's leg is much too far in front of her. It appears that she is jamming her heel down, causing the leg to swing forwards. Instead, I suggest she focus on her legs hanging off the saddle like a wet rag, and of course the weight of the heel should naturally bring it downwards without the swing.
- Rider's hands appear to be twisted to "piano hands"
- Rider is looking up and towards where she wants to go - excellent
Horse:
- Horse needs to engage more through the hind end
- I would like to see a lower headset on this horse, because he is not working through himself. Any energy being created by the hind end is getting lost through the shoulders and nose. If the rider could ask for the horse to come into a lower headset, and work through its spine completely, I think you would see a completely different picture
- Horse appears tense and hollow, see above note.
Wild Spot--post 11 horse--Vodka
86.5
Rider still has her arms/elbow too straight but the horse looks softer in the bit. Better leg placement and it looks like the shot caught you in the up position of a post. Horse is not reaching as well as I would like but a pleasing picture anyways.
Rider:
Rider's legs appear to be better in this picture. The stirrup is a tad twisted, making it look like the rider's leg has twisted as well.
- Rider's arms need to have a slight bit more bend to them, and wrists need to be straight.
Horse:
- Horse again needs to engage the hind end. Working in a longer and lower headset as mentioned above could benefit this horse greatly.
- Horse needs to be bent to the inside
Ohmyitschelle--post 15 Horse--Lovebug
79
Horse has gone behind the vertical. The rider appears to be holding to tight with not enough drive to push him up to the bit properly. This has also resulted in the horse not tracking up.
Rider:
- Rider's heels could come further underneath of her and toes could point forwards more
- Rider has a nice deep seat
- Could roll the shoulders back a tad
- hands are "in the lap" and could be picked up more
Horse:
- Horse could be marching forwards more, and is slightly behind the vertical.

This is not a half pass but a leg yield and on that basis the horse has sufficient bend but needs to be rounder in the front. Lost some leg position in the rear and rider should be keeping the outside rein closer to the outside of the neck.

It's a nice picture, nice horse, nice rider eq, and I love the color coordination, but it says I'm supposed to judge the horse over the fence, so I assume the horse is supposed to be jumping, and this one is not.

Very cute picture, but more of a canter.
Horse has good reach & rider has pretty good position - nice photo
For gaming, I'd like to see you giving a bit more with your hands. You're maintaining good posture which I can't say for a lot of people I see. Your horse is using himself well but from where it looks like you are from the barrel, I think he could be pushing a bit more with his hind end. You both look well groomed and presentable.
CloudsMystique--post9 Horse--Mystique
80.3
Really cool pictures with a great extension. I would be careful of riding barefoot though...
Horse looks great but the rider is way too far forward and holding the horn. Pet Peeve - rider is barefoot.
Huge huge pet peeve of mine is holding onto the horn. Seeing as how you are so far up out of the saddle, you seem to be hindering yourself more than anything. I'd like to see your reins evened up and your weight pushed into your heels more. Your position seems to be a bit over exaggerated. Your horse is reaching nicely and moves well.
CloudsMystique--post9 Horse--Fendi
75.6
Very pretty but I can't see the extent of the canter. Really pretty horse!
Gallop is hard to judge for the angle of the photo
I like this one more. Kudos to you for keeping flip flops on while riding. You obviously have the seat to not be holding onto a horn, and the bareback in this seems to really help you. I'd like you're shoulders to be rounded back more as you seem to slouch. Again the reins seem to need to be evened out. Your horse seems more collected in this photo but seems to be using himself well but I'd like to see a more forward, opened up gallop. You look much better in this photo but I like your horse better in the other one.
Wild Spot--post 11 horse--Pippin

I really like the shot. The background is cool and the polo stick is nice
Amazing action shot! Horse has beautiful movements & rider gets extra points for being able to stay balanced despite leaning over like that
Looks great! Your horse is really using himself and working through his hind end. I like that despite reaching down beside him, your reins remain lax and there doesn't seem to be any tension with his mouth. I can't really judge position otherwise in this photo though.

Awesome lighting and very good detail. I like this shot a lot.

Neat angle. I really like how he is mostly a silhouette. The sort of handy lip pulls it all together

Awesome shot. Your horses blue eyes sets it apart. I would like to see the visible shavings (?) in the bottom cropped out, but I really like this one.
CloudsMystique--post9 Horse--Fendi

This shot seems a bit less quality than your other one. I really like the image you captured, but the grainy(?) quality takes away from it. Interesting angle. I'd like the electric/lamp post and wire gone.

Cute shot. His head seems to really stick out from the dust. I can't seem to ever capture dust, so you've got me on that.

I like where you were going with it, but I think you could have done better. Obviously the focus of the picture is supposed to be the mane Ė I think it would have been better with out the fence in the background though the barn adds a nice touch

Neat shot. I want to know what the horse is looking at! I really like the bit of hay hanging from his lips.

I like it quite a bit. I'd like to see it without the photo manipulating editing. Your horse has a nice profile and I think it may have looked better with a bit less editing.

That horse must have the shortest neck I have ever seen. Nice colours and composition though. I think it would have been a bit better if you had moved it back just an inch so we had more of the riders leg and less of the wall.

Photo is of a very cute little donkey, with itís oversized ears. Whilst I understand their oversized ears are seen as funny, I donít see it as anything more than cute.

Photo is a very nice shot. The oversized ears do stand out more in this photo and I could imagine funny captions under this particular photo. Therefore I have awarded

This photo is incredibly funny. The fly mask has provided, like Dana suggested, a "court jester" appearance and when I first saw it I had a good laugh over it. Photo is very good and a clear standout from other photos in this category. .
comment- funny pic!! The ears on that mask are way too big for his ears and it makes him look so dopey!! He reminds me of your on whinny the pooh!!! Great pic!

This picture in my opinion belongs in the Best tongue shot. However, judging on the horseís expression and ears, it is overall a comical photo. I have awarded
very funny and cute picture
Jacksmom--post 28 Horse--jack & hat
65
The use of the hat is very cute and makes for a good picture. Horse looks slightly concerned as to why thereís an overhanging red thing and white puff on his face, but itís not harming him and only makes his response cuter.
great picture!! He looks like a poser!! Lol!! His eyes just say "look at me!!" haha!!

Jack, that is an annoying no real danger to either horse or person but still very annoying.

This seemed just a little off since it looked like Penny was looking more to the camera than you while you were poring everything into her.

Very cute pic, he does love his mare doesn't he? I had to put you down just a little since a story was pre entered which took away the imagination for me

All this said to me was there is a horse crashing into a camera. I could not find much of a story through the picture. Nice entry though.

Going by the statement to the class, rider has comfortable clothing on, with the use of helmet and boots, all in which doesn'tít provide any safety worries. The mismatch of western and english gear doesn'tít appear to really stick out to me as a major flaw, it is obvious the horse is comfortable in this equipment and it fits well enough. The horse is standing in the photo and apart from a shaggy mane, he looks very clean and tidy, and well kept. It appears that the rider was going for a trail ride and has chosen to use a western saddle over an english for it.

Cute horse! You seem to be concentrating very hard :P
Rider appears to be working in 2 point and jumping/pole work. Has great lower leg, with a nice heel. Appears to have a solid basic foundation in riding, and the horse seems to be quiet enough to enable riderís pursuits. Rider is seven in the photo, and because of age, I have chosen to award 75 out of 100 because of the age of the rider from thirteen years ago
Pinto Pony--post 6 Horse--Kai
73
I love that you were riding Kai then too. Awesome picture.
Photo is twelve years old, and rider is fourteen. Rider has good technique over the jump, and the horse looks nice and tidy too. Equipment and riding attire looks nice and tidy, not falling into the "crusty" category. Due to age of rider compared to other competitors,
JustDressageIt--post7 Horse--Sierra

I love this shot. You look very tiny up on the horse and I think it expresses a lot. Very neat.
Rider is very young and appears to be having a lesson. Since this is the old school division, I chose this pic overall as the competitor is clearly the youngest out of the three. Horse is nice and tidy, as is riding attire and equipment.

Yeah I wouldn't want 2 get stepped on my a pony! Lol.

I love your matching expressions! You both look like youíre thinking OH $@%^#*

Haha. This picture is just ridiculous. Not what I was expecting but definitely fits...wonder what he got caught doing...
When I first saw this picture it didn't make me gasp or my eyes go wide, I thought it could have been a head shot class pic.
Fabulous photo, and I love the expression, but I did deduct points because the photo doesn'tít show whatís going on to make it an OH $@%^#* moment
CloudsMystique--post9 Horse--Fendi

Cute picture and Fendi definitely had the Oh %(@* expression but it looks playful at least.
I would freak out about my horse getting kicked in the shoulder and getting perm. Muscle or bone damage depending on the hit power. Yeah scary!
LOVE it! Definitely looks like Fendiís getting his butt whooped
Ohmyitschelle--post 15 Horse--Bailey

For some reason the horses expression just made the shot better. Otherwise, it actually looks like it was done on purpose (Maybe it's because I can't see the riders face)
These top two were a hard choice, rearing always has the possibility of falling over and just other nasty things.
Great photo! Bailey looks totally chill, but I can just imagine what your friend must have been thinking!
