Question Critique, Please!

Anyone care to critiue my position? This was my horse and I doing our first event together at the BN novice level. This was the second jump in a four stride (? maybe 3, I can't remember now) bending line. Any and all comments/critiques welcome.

Love you and your horse's form! You're both looking very good. One thing I notice is that your reins are quite long for the event. I'd pick up on your rein, and put your hands a bit more forward on his neck for a proper release. That way you're not inhibiting his jump, but you have your horse under control when you land at a gallop. Other than that, I love it!

You have it all going girl! I would kill for your ankles base of support. Only thing missing is that ear to ear XC grin, but I'm thinking this was an earlier fence on the course.

Thanks everyone. I also agree that I need to have more contact in my reins.

MyBoyPuck: This was actually in the middle of the course and I got really tired! I think I was concentrating on breathing more than anything haha. But after my last jump I started screaming like I just won the rolex or something! Here is a picture of us at the horse was probably thinking what the hell is she doing on my back?!
