    Red face Critiquing Time

    May I all remind you she is a pony :)

    Extended Job: this was a command class.

    Trot: This was an English Pleasure Class.

    Jog: at home.

    I think that you two are a great team! =] So...

    For YOU (English):
    • Heels down!
    • Thumbs on top (this one is my biggest fault, haha).
    • Pull your elbows to your side.
    • Loosen up!
    For YOU (Western):
    • Sit tall and ride with pride.
    • Heels DOWN!
    • Loosen your reins, if you can.
    Judges love to see a smile. I know you probably feel stupid smiling (as no one else does really), but the judge loves to see a smile. I have a hard time smiling. I normally get about 1/3 of the way through a class then give up. But like I said before, ride with pride. =]

    Good job.

    PS: Maybe try slowing down her jog (in the last picture), as she is pretty much just doing the "english" version of a jog, hehe.

    In the western pic, it looks like you just let your arm hang. With the arm you're not holding the reins, you might want to hold it up like you are holding up another rein. It helps your balance and just overall looks better. C:

    In the Western pics your feet look a little shoved into the stirrup. Try putting your weight on the ball of your foot more or less? And heels down =)
