Critique from a show a year ago!

This is juju (i have changed her name!). She was super good. At the show, a lesson kid showed her and got Champion! It was the girl's first show and she gets VERY nervous! Thank you and be as harsh as needed!

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

I'm assuming we are critiqueing the horse? I LOVE how cute she is, However if she's a hunter I would like a more "mirror" image of her legs over the jump. However she is landing so for all I know she has that super cute snappy look the judges love. Do you have any other photos? Or maybe tell us exactly what kind of critique you want?

I think I upload the pictures in file they may or may not work - any advice on how to do it is appreciated.

You guys look good, but I agree with Dartanion- your horse needs to be a bit tighter over the jumps, but they are just landing so it could be that she's actually tighter. You look really good, and you aren't jumping ahead. I think you might need to give your horse a bit more of a release, though. I'm not sure, though, since I haven't been jumping long!

my only critique to you: release your horse a little bit by putting your hands a little bit more forward (that´s my own problem too )
But apart from that, it´s really good in my opinion! Thumbs up!

Files weren't working so i'm going to give the website URL thing. I don't know if you need an account on shutterfly to see it though!!!

Kind of Blurry and far away:

Not a great picture to critique but do your best:

Hopefully these will work!!! If they don't I will take any suggestions to get them too.

I agree about the release, but on this pony, if given the chance she will look at the jumps and stop. My trainer likes me to keep a short rein. However, I am know riding a new horse and find that I think about my release to much now, and over release! :roll: Thank you!
