Critique horse & rider? Both flat & jumping pics.

This is me and my thoroughbred mare. She was off for about two years before I started working with her and leasing her this year, and so we obviously have a lot to work on. Tell me what you think of both my position and the horse! Thanks

But for the critiquing...You are getting SOOO good! I'm amazed at how well you are doing! It's so exciting to watch you guys get better and better over the years. One thing frog really needs to work on though is squaring up her front legs over the jumps, especially if you are doing hunt classes with her, that is one thing they really look for when the horse in jumping a fence :) She did it nice in the pic of you guys in the field but in the others her one leg is down a bit compared to the other.

I like your eq.! I think your horse could use some grid work to tighten up those knees. On the flat make sure and keep those eyes up. :)

I'm not sure if this is an accurate observation or not, but it looks like your lower leg is slipping back a little in response to you having most of your contact with your knees. Maybe concentrate on redistributing your lower leg contact so it covers more area from your thighs down to your calves. That's all I've got. You're doing great.

I think that you should try to stand up more in your strirrups and not lean to far forward as you arn't jumping that high at all. That was for the jumping. Let's try flat.
For the flat try and keep your shoulder back a little bit more. And try and always keep an L bend in your elbows.

You look like you are working a little bit too hard to jump. I do that exact same thing. I am constantly being told that it is not the Olympics and I need to hot work so hard. Just let your horse carry you over the jump. Especially if you are just going over something small. Your leg has fallen back in many of the pictures and in the ones on the flat it is a smige forward. Other then those minor little things you are looking awesome!
