Sit back a little, roll your shoulders back, and relax your upper body. Remember to keep your hands leval and thumbs on top. Your horse seems to be working very nicely for you.

Maybe when doing dressage you can keep your elbows by your side a bit more and your hands closer together, level and maybe just a tad lower. Also, maybe in jumping just give a little more with the hands. At the jump it looks alright, but if he tried stretch a little more you might jab him in the mouth. Your position over the jump looks secure though :) over all not bad at all.

These look wonderful i definitely agree. In all of your pics you look marvelous, however i do also agree about your elbows. just bring them in and back a tad. At leas in, keep them close to your sides when you ride =D

wonderfully done guys

to me it looks like you have little chicken wings, so make sure that your elbows stay in just a little bit more. other wise it looks great!

when jumping, open up a little but. you look so "scrunched" up there :)

You have some CUTE horses tho!

You look relaxed and confident on both of those horses, it looks like everyone was enjoying themselves! I have a chronic case of chicken wings so I'm not one to talk . lol
