crituque me!

A little about me... I was injured a year before these pictures, so this was me getting back into work at the end of last summer. I don't have any recent pictures. I broke my right leg. I shattered my fibula and my tibia. I have plates and screws all now permanently in my leg. So that would be why my right ankle is a little wonky... but after a ride for a while it starts to flex a little more. I'm like an old horse that has to work out of being a little stiff .

I realize his head set isn't there, I hadn't been riding, so he didn't have the muscle to carry himself well.

You are a lovely rider. Nice square shoulders, soft hands, lovely form over the jump.
What I would like to see is a little more contact on the reins, if you are comfortable doing so. You kind of threw away the contact over the fence, and I imagine the landing was a little bit hard to get all sorted out again. You do want to follow the horse's head movements and allow it to use its head and neck over the jump, but not throw everything away - does that make sense?

Thank you! The toes in... omg it is something I have always worked on and is very very slowly getting better. I completely understand what you mean with the contact. In the flat picture where I have little contact, we were working on just giving him his head and encourgaing him to just relax. He's an OTTB and liked to go around with his head high at the trot.
