This is from a schooling show this year. I ride once a week at a lesson barn that is pretty casual. The show is very casual as well. I know my hands aren't great in the photo. We did ground poles this year, schooling cross rails and 18 inch verticals , and hope to show cross-rails next year and school potentially up too 2 feet. I would like to ride in college some day, and I think my expirence at a lesson barn would really benefit me. I have ridden and shown every type of horse under the sun. I have even shown horses that I have never ridden before in extra classes and done well. I would love any feedback you have, and will try to get some more pics soon.

ONe photo is not really enough to give much of a critique of your riding.
I can say that you are turned out really nicely, the angle of your leg is just great and though I can see the scoliosis expressed in your upper body angle, it isn't bad. Head is looking forward and not tilted.

The two things that stand out are your lack of contact with the horse , (rein overly loose and draping), and that you seem to be too far back in the saddle , and I suspect that is because the saddle may be too big for you.

If you want a much more detailed critique, post a video.
You look very smart in that photo and I hope you enjoyed the show and perhaps took home a ribbon!
