It's working!

It's a little hard to critique from the angle, but from what I can see, your toes are pointing out a little more than i'd like.

Also when you go into your 2 point, from the looks of it, don't put your upper body on his neck. And don't stick your elbows out.

It looks like that your legs slipped back a little bit, but it's hard to tell from this angle

Other than that, I like your release, and that you're looking up! :)

Your body's a bit too far forward when you're in your 2-point. :)
Your toes could be in a bit more as well, towards his nose. You don't look too bad though. Also, pretty horse!

You really chuck your reins at the horse when you jump in the second pic.
It looks like your laying on the neck a lot.
But apart from that the horse is lovely

I think you look good with him. Your horse is so pretty! In the first pic, I agree you are too far forward and anticipating the jump before he gets there. He also seems to be overjumping in the first picture. In the second pic his take-off seems a bit big compared to the jump but maybe its the angle of the shot. I like how you keep your eyes up and you find the middle of the jump pretty well.

Keep up the good work!

First off... I am stealing your horse. So freaking cute. What breed and name?

Now for you. The first picture is really hard to get much from because of the angle. It is clear that your toes turn out a little too much, so try to turn them in a little. It's great that your eyes are looking up and forward. That's exactly what you need to be doing.

The second picture... you are just kind of throwing yourself over the fence. This isn't a huge fence, you don't need to lay on your horses neck. Your lower leg has slipped back a little, this can be caused by weak calf muscles, you could try taking the stirrups off your saddle and doing some no stirrup work for a while. As far as your upper body, you need to come up off your horse. You have thrown yourself forward to the point where you are almost about to come in front of the saddle. Wait for your horse to jump, you don't have to jump for your horse. Jumping is easy, just go with the motion, you don't need to put in all that extra effort to try to fold. You also really don't need that big of a release. You seem like you really do know what you are doing, but you need to not try so hard because then you get ahead of yourself and over fold. These really are not that big of fences, you don't need to put that much effort into it to get over.

Overall I do think that you look good, and it looks like you have a good base and know what you need to do.... you just need to adjust it for the size fence you are going over.
