It's okay LBG, I'm glad she pointed it out as I really hadn't thought about it before posting. TL, could you delete some of the closer-ups?

Not really an issue. Equiniphile meant no harm. I removed the close ups.
now back to our regularly scheduled programming . . .

If I could ride half as well as you, I wouldn't care what kind of riding I did. I would want everyone to see me ride!

Thanks tiny, that means a lot to me! Excel has come so far in the year since he's been on the track, and I'm ecstatic with our progress .

You, yourself, built nicely for a rider. Long legs, very skinny. Around here, you would place nicely in the hunter ring (student eq). I'm short and chunky.

Anyways, in the o/f you look a tad bit forward before the jump. I only browsed some of the pictures, but you look great! I'm a hunter, love it. Love the horse, think he'd look great in the ring. If you want to go with Eventing, I don't think you'd have any trouble. He looks very capable, and willing.

I also agree that your a good rider, you have a great body type for the hunter ring.

I agree that your stirrups are too short... that's about all I know.

I dont mean what i said to be rude, like i said it just worries me.
They can't get you through the monitor. In order to get "preyed upon" you have to agree to meet someone in real life. And dollars to donuts it wasn't this kind of site your neighbor's daughter was posting pictures on.

I think wearing a sports bra while riding is a very smart idea, baing old and fat and challenged by gravity I wear one, that looks more like an industrial hammock when I show, for fear of distracting the judge!!

For the op, she is young, wearing helmet, boots, breeches, I have no issue with her choice of top. When it's hot most of us wear the flimsiest of shirts anyway, I don't see them offering much protection in a fall in all honesty.

Her choice of clothing, seeing as you can clearly see her body position, should make the task of critique a lot easier, the same pic in a couple of months time with the huge baggy sweat shirt on would actually hide the subtleties of the riders position.

Valid points have been made about perverts, but you never know how many people who fantasize about woman in skin tight breeches are looking at the pics here. Yes there are a lot of sick people in the world, but sometimes we give them to much power over us I think,

There is alot of grey area around what I said I agree on that. But it is my opinion. It was infant myspace, but perverts can be anywhere.

I wasn't saying she would even interact with someone like that.

It bothers me when girls post pictures of themselves in bikini or anything revealing on any site. You never know who is on the other end looking at them. Like I said, maybe I am just a stick in the mud but it's how I feel.

I think you look like a fabulous athelete in your sports bra ;)

Definitely work on relaxing into your heel. As you said, your knee may be a little grippy. Overall, I think your position is good and has potential to be awesome.

Excel looks really good in the flat pictures. He looks like he is using himself properly, so good job with that. He would make an awesome hunter, but I'm with you, eventing is so much more fun ;) He looks very capable of eventing as well, so really its just up to you.

Oh, and your release is definitely big enough. You don't have to go that big lol, but I guess its better too much than too little.

Way to go!

newsflash guys, no one is fapping to low quality pictures of a girl riding in a sports bra.... there's nothing wrong with this thread, she wasn't insecure about these pictures until you MADE her feel insecure.
