    I'm not really an English rider but I think it looks pretty good. The jumps look little! At first I thought you were to far out of the saddl ebut then as I studied the pic more that thought left me! :) Like I said, the jumps look small so your horse looks pretty surprised!

    Haha thanks She's not my horse, I just ride her hehe. She was surprised! She was totally "chill" outside the ring, like half asleep. As soon as we got near a fence she was like "Oh dear, you want me to jump this? Alleee---ooop!" haha. Those fences were about 2'6 - I think she needs to do more around 3' now! Haha.

    All in all, it looks like she is tucking nicely even if she is jumping twice as high as the jump lol

    I see your lost stirrup in the first pic so I guess it is a little hard to critique but it kinda looks like you are either coming back to sit to soon or, you didnt have the 3 point seat happening properly. Tis hard to remember now im not looking at the pics though.

    I do agree with ya that it looks like your position looks a little off but in a lot of ways its hard to put my finger on exactly what so I am going to not say anymore about that :) if anything though (i just can't help myself) I would say keep your back straight and 'lean' a little lower but not in the neck. And maybe watch your arms a little. But all in all, you look like you're definitely on the right track :)

    Good luck :)
