    Critique Please

    This is a picture from this past show season at my lesson barn. I would love some advice or tips. This is supposed to be a hunter class, but is very casual. I also have scoliosis so that's why my shoulders aren't even. I would love to ride in college someday, and I am comfortable jumping 18", and hopefully 2 feet by the summer. If anyone has some tips, or if you think maybe I have the skills to ride in college. I have experiences riding all sorts of different horses, so I think that might give me a leg up. THANKS!!

    I also included one from a lesson, during a water break, so you can see my shoulders a little better. Sorry I don't have videos, I can't get them to upload they are on my computer but were filmed on an iPhone

    Are you able to rotate your shoulder back? The pic looks as if they have come forward a tad. Leg looks preaty good id like to see your heels down more. Move your sturrup forward an inch or two so the ball of your foot rest on it...that will help sink your heel. Gather your reains so you have contact with the bit at all times. This will also encourage him to stretch his neck down round his back and use hin hind end more effectively and put him in a nice frame. You want to try to have his top line as level as possible. Other than that you look like a very good rider. As far as riding in college you have to try out to make the teams. Definitely wana get jumping at least 2'4 if your at 18 inches it should be easy to go 2 and 2'4. And the experience on diffrent horses is a plus. Makes you a more well rounded rider. I think you will do well!

    Thanks you, I am able to rotate my shoulder back if I am thinking the same way you are. Like more pinching my shoulder blades back, while still tucking my pelvis. I have been doing physical thearpy to strenthen my shoulders. Thank you for your comments!

    If anyone has any other comments about college I would love to hear them.
