Post Critique

If you think you know what this is you do.
Due to current events I am giving a critique to a certain person that we both wish to remain anonymous. I have been getting multiple e-mails and have decided on a easy way to help them.

Ok I think you would benefit from having your hands work independently of your body you seem to want to hug them to yourself. You can practice giving a release at a walk and trot.
I think your ankle looks a bit stiff. When I practice without stirrups my leg becomes supple and flexible.
I like that you are closing your body and staying with the horse. Your seat is a little too far froward but I think that can be fixed with a little work. You can try thinking about closing the hip angle instead of reaching with your upper body while jumping. ALOT of riding skills are in the mind. You have to think about it.
Your toe is pointed outward a bit too much. You can think about keeping it more parallel. Ultimately I would like to see a little more relaxed picture and a nice good crest release.
That being said you clearly bring out the look of a competitor. With shined boots,clean clean tack and a shiny horse.
Your horse is very pretty the only thing I would like to see is him pick up his legs a little more.
You two seemed to be wonderfully matched and it looks like you are doing well. Best of luck.

If you had wanted to remain anonymous then there was no need to post publicly. Use the PM feature in future.

I though it would be easier for that person to find it this way. Because I hate using the pm on this thing.
