Any critique, please? First time riding Blu in months.

He did much better than expected but worse at the same time. Pretty much just what I expected. :)

My friend to a picture of us jumping. It's a horrible picture. My toes were down and we just look plain HORRIBLE. I'm sorry. I'f you can't critique I will try to get new pics later. THANKS... (jump was less than a foot and Blu had to leap over it the first time. Not this time though)



EDITED to insert bigger pic

WHATS REALITY?

hey! The photoes a lil small! Are you jumping in a western saddle? It looks like you are being held back or something...? But as I said the photo is really hard to see.
He is really nice

I can't really see, but are your toes sticking outwards? If so, try not to do that, I used to do that as a habit, but it's not the right way to ride. Other then that, you and Blu look great! Well done!

Ha-ha-ha! You have to provide us with microscope next time! Lol! From what I can see (I may be wrong though) you have toe down a lot (but you mentioned that already )

I will try to get another picture that's better. Lol. We might go riding Saturday. Can you tell anything from this pic about my overall (hideous) form? :roll:

BTW, I was in a Western saddle. I'm going to try and resize the picture but it will be blurry. The jump was like less than a foot high lol and Blu was sooooo fidgety! I'm sorry for such horrible jumping.
