Critque me, Jumping

You already mentioned your stirrups. Why are they so long? Curious.

Your position in the first one is textbook. Your shoulders, back of the knee, and heel are all in a perfect line. Your hands are light and forgiving. Your heel looks nice, tight, and your weights distributed in the right area to allow them to sink low.

The only other picture I can really critique is the last one. Because of your too-long stirrup, you are pushing yourself out of the saddle too early, because you are trying to reach for the horse. Shorten up your stirrups, as you said, and really wait for his thrust to take you over the fence. Your short crest release is nice and well done. Your upper body is great, not too hunched over (which contradicts your lower body, in a good way!), with your back flat and your eyes up.

You two are a cute pair!

I forgot to add that I love your lower leg in the first picture because your toes are slightly pointed out, allowing for it to flex deep in the stirrup and keep firm contact between your calf and your horse. Great job.

Thank's! Oh, and my stirrups were kinda of long because in a day 1, dressage, I need longer stirrups (I don't have a dressage saddle yet), and of course I forgot to put htem up xD Though now, I always put my stirrups up, well for jumping. Thanks! And that was my second to last ride on that pony.
