CRITIQUE my mare please!

so, I took a couple of pics at my first XC training of the year yesterday. I only got a couple of pics, since my mum didn't feel like sprinting with me while I galloped in order to get more :P
So yeah, she'd not quite settled into things yet but I just want to know how our technique looks so I can have it in my head for training next week :)
oh and if you can, some conformation critique would be good, but I obviously know these pics are not going to be ideal! :)
Thanks!!!!
Im in the stripy hoody by the way!

What a COOL mare!!! Her legs look nice and straight and her body is balanced (from what I could see....you're right, not the best conformation pics. Lol), her jump looks nice....(I'm not an expert, but your position looks good, too.)

Is she a Clyde x Thoroughbred cross?

I'm not a good jumping critiquer, but you two look great!

She's a nice typey mare. I like her a lot. I also like your jumping form. The only thing I would try to correct, your leg has slipped back in the photo of you landing after the jump. Try to bring your lower leg forward and "land on your feet". Otherwise, nicely ridden!

thanks a lot guys! She's a cleveland bay X thoroughbred, only she occasionly forgets she isn't full TB :P
Allison Finch, i'm really glad you noticed that! I don't think I would have, but now you've said it your right!
I'll work on that next week, and hopefully get some new pics up of landings :)
Thanks for the help, its all appreciated!
