    The second picture, he is skinny and looking at his right front leg he looks bowed..I need someone else to look at that and see if they see it also or maybe its the angle?
    Third picture, Im a big fan of the "old" fashion hunter..I like the level head. I noticed in your first picture he holds his head high also..are you a hunter? If so try working on lowering his.
    Fourth picture,(i can't pick out things bareback-ill let other people decide lol)
    Fifth picture, it looks like you could move your hands to the middle of your horses neck more and that your butt could be pointed back more also.

    You look great! Keep up the good work!

    All I can see is that you need to move your hands up his neck more over the jumps.

    1. Your horse has really nice leg extension, but he's working off the forehand. Use lots of leg to push him through his hind end so that his impulsion come up through his hindquarters and back. You have very nice position by the way! Loosen your reins a bit and allow him to work into your contact.

    2. He needs more weight and muscle. Lots of trot-work helps with improving topline and rump muscle. His neck is a bit thin, but this will probably improve with more muscling. He has a very sweet face.

    3. His confo looks a lot better in this picture. Was it taken sometime later? He looks a lot more muscled to me but his rump still needs a bit more work. Try not to force his head into a frame. I know you were probably doing that for the picture, but try not to focus on his head too much when riding. Work on his back end first.

    4. A little more release. Look up.

    5. It looks like you're jumping "for" him in this picture. You have beautiful leg position and natural form ... but try to close that gap between the saddle a little more.

    Those are just a few things I've noticed. You guys look great though. Keep up the good work!
