Be sure to post for another critque in six months. You'll be amazed at the improvement evident in photos.

Wow your horse looks familiar.... He's very handsome by the way.

All I can add is that in the second picture it looks like you have a slight chair seat, but if you shorten your stirrups that could help a lot.

Other than being a little tense you look like a beautiful rider.

Welcome to HF MicKey!

In the first picture it looks like you have dropped your inside shoulder just a smidge. Think shoulders Up-Back-Down.

In the last picture, over the jump, your back is slightly rounded when it should be flat. Also you haven't given any release at all, as if you comare it to the other pictures, your hand placement hasn't changed at all.

Other then that, you two look really good together!

Thanks!! I have been lurking on other critiques for awhile, so decided to just suck it up and post my own! :) Mick and I are working hard to improve (our bond and our riding) and will definitely post in a few months. I have already addressed the stirrup length and am working on the rest. We are also working on his mullet-tail ;) as he was apparently wormy at some point before I got him :(
