    I see a huge improvement. In the newer ones all I can say is push your heels down. You legs look good, they are under you. In the last 2 your legs are to far back. And I would suggest a little more release. Great Job :)

    A lot better! I think you still need to work on your crest release over the bigger jumps though, let your horse have his head. It doesnt matter so much over smaller jumps :)
    Really good jumper youve got there

    Lower leg is defintely more secure, and your release is better as well.

    Still work on pointing the toe forward and gripping with the flat of your calf, rather than the back. When your leg is truly underneath you, you'll find it easier to open your upper body angle/get further away from his neck.

    Keep up the good work.

    Very nice jumper. Lots of improvement, definitely. I don't mean to sound like a jerk but I cringed at one of those old photos, you wer elike sideways over his neck and I'm like O.O

    Lolz. Anyway, the only critique I can offer you is put your heels down and a little more release. Buuut you were already told that :)

    Good job!

    Yeah that's what Im working away on now. Toes pointed forward and thumbs on top of the reins. I've got into a bad habit of not having thumbs ontop of the reins so trying to iron that out too:)
    Thanks:)
