    You look pretty good to be honest.. the only thing is I see in a couple of the jumping pictures, you need to try and straighten out your leg a bit more. But you look good :) and the horse is gorgeous btw

    Cute horse! What are you planning on doing? Overall your eq looks good. I would work on putting your heels down more over the jump. One of my trainers told me to think of it as pushing my heels to my horses head - for some reason that has helped me out a ton! You have a very nice back and a nice release. It looks like some of the distances might be a little off. My trainer recently had me do a great grid that forced me to find a good distance or the whole combination would be messed up. Grids will also help your horse to be "snappier" with his knees. The first picture has his knees hanging but I think that might also have to do with the timing of the picture. Overall you look very good!

    Overall you look pretty good and your horse is adorable.

    I agree that your heels need to be down more and your leg has slid back in a few pics. On the other hand you have a nice release and are not jumping ahead or getting left behind, which is a problem for most riders including me.

    Thanks. I plan on showing in the equitation division and medal and also do the hunter courses, but I probably won't find out from my trainers till its closer to June.yeah I do need to put my heels down more over the jumps. My horse tends to let his knees be loose over smaller jumps, my trainers don't have us do grids to often and I don't know why.

    Ok for Eq you need to work on keeping your hands planted on the neck when you start to open.And that will help with keeping your body from opening too soon. And to avoid the swinging leg you need to jam your ankle forward. For Hunters give a nice loose release so you can show of your horse's jump bascule.

    To me, it seems like in most of the pictures you are looking down, so try to look up more- it sometimes fixes other form faults. Heels down, and in the first picture it seems like you might be leaning on the horse's neck for support. Overall, good job! You look like a really good rider.
