    Just a little tip:

    Try not to go over the pommel.

    When your horse is landing lean BACK, not forward. Pic nine looks very good, and you are where you should be.

    Pic number six, you shoul dbe leaning back not forward.

    But I think you are very good at jumping, oh and try to keep your legs forward.

    Thank you for your comment but I said I didn't want critiques in this thread. I put the pictures I do want critiqued in a separate thread on the critique board, so if you want to critique, post it there. :) I'm sorry if that sounds really picky but there are certain pictures I really like and sometimes I just like to enjoy the pictures without all the bad stuff popping out at me right away, which is why I usually give myself a day or so after I ride to feel good about myself before I put anything up for critique. XD

    I had the lesson show last weekend! I haven't uploaded the pictures yet cause I have a ridiculous amount of homework this week, but I thought since I'm riding today I would go ahead and tell you all about the show so I don't get behind with my posting.

    The lesson show was basically everyone from my barn and a few people who came from nearby barns. It was a pretty big event compared to what I thought it would be. Poor Dakota was used in almost every division, though! First I watched the 2'6'' people school. Some other girl fell off Dakota when they were schooling, but she was okay.

    I thought it was really weird how when the girls schooled, they all rode with their hands behind their knees! I know they were trying to get the horses into a headset or something, but they all looked kinda silly all hunched over! Anyways, Dakota didn't seem to mind.

    First were the 2'6'' classes, which I filmed. Dakota went really well! After that he was ridden in a walking class by a little girl, so that was pretty much like a break before I rode him.

    I had three jumping classes (2') and a flat class. The first jumping course was pretty bad... I got some awful distances, cut some corners, and didn't really have my head in the game. My division was pretty big so I had a long wait before I jumped again. We redeemed ourselves and took everything in perfect stride! I was really happy, so I yelled GOOD BOY!!! And gave Dakota a huge hug as we cantered around in a circle after our course. Everyone laughed! The third course was pretty good, too, but Dakota was tired and we added 2 strides into one of the lines.

    For the jumping classes I got 3rd, 2nd, and 1st respectively!

    Then we had our flat/hack class which was walk-trot-canter. Dakota went like a dream... until he stopped to POOP!!! That was a deal-breaker. We got 6th, but I was lucky to even place. XD

    My mom did take pictures but I realized when I looked at them that my eq is absolutely HORRIBLE!!

    Today, in my lesson, I'm going to really work on sinking my weight into my heels over the jumps. My mom will get pictures, so I'll try to get those + show pics up soon!

    Haha thank you! His knees aren't usually like that, he was just very afraid of that particular jump... he thought the bumble bees painted on it would eat him if he didn't tuck his hooves waay up to his belly!

    Well, it still makes for a great picture!

    I can't wait to see your show pictures!

    I'm not a very good rider, but even I can see you've progressed so much since the first pics of you I've seen
