    Critique Me, Jake, and Cody

    I had a schooling show this weekend so I have some new pictures for people to critique! Cody is the spotted Polish Arab and Jake is the chesnut Hanoverian. My position kind of sucks over some of the jumps because I hadn't jumped that high before- only small jumps, and these were up to 2'3". Why my stirrups are so short in the dressage is because I was running late and they were early, so I had to run up and just hop on- it was really hectic. Thanks in advance for the critiques! I'm not sure if you'll be able to see the pictures or not though- I'll try... from Shutterfly it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

    Holy cow, it's so nice to see someone not trying to jump for their horse. I love how you sit back and just let the horse close your hip angle. Your looking ahead to your next fence, your back is flat. Great job.

    I agree with MyBoyPuck! You look SO relaxed and as if it's as easy as walking for the two of you.

    In the dressage photo - my personal tastes would have the horses face more vertical.

    Yeah, I agree with you on having his face more vertical- I'll have to work on that with him. Thanks!

    Anyone else? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve my release? To me it seems that I need to release farther up his neck sometimes. Is there anything that people think about (if that makes sense) that helps them release enough? I realize that that probably doesn't make much sense, but if it does please respond! I can't tell if I released enough when I am riding unless I didn't release at all.
