Critqiue my Jumping

Dixie and I were having a horribly off day, the worst ever. So my riding will look... not great? Be as harsh as you would like. I may blind you by my EQ.

No we did not knock down the jump, it is just the size. Click HERE for other image.

It's kind of hard to critique from the front but you honestly don't look bad. You have a nice flat back and you are looking where you are going. I assume you are turning because you are looking to the left in almost every picture :).
You release also looks nice.

The thing I notice is that you may be using your stirrup too much to get out of the saddle. This would explain why in some of the pictures your lower leg has slipped back and your heel has come up. Focus on dropping your weight into your heel and keep your stirrup on the ball of your foot. I can't really tell from the pictures but your stirrups might be a hole too short because the picture from the back it looks like your knee angle is too squished. Also make sure you aren't jumping ahead. Keep your balance over the middle of the saddle.

Other than those things, keep up the good work!
