This post is from August, I am hoping to see some improvement from this:
Be Honest and Harsh
The following pictures were taken this weekend, so nearly 6 months have passed. I feel like I am stagnating a bit, and not improving much. Having said that, I focussed a lot on keeping my hands in a better position, or at least I thought I did. My thumbs are on top, but my elbows are straight now I also feel like I need my heels down just a touch, but before you start telling me to push them lower or force them down, remember that I want to aim for dressage, which doesn't require such extremely dropped heels. On that same note, I feel like I need to lean back a touch, to bring my weight into my seat a bit better.
Go ahead and pick them apart, feel free to be mean or to give constructive advice Please don't critique the mare, Elle, since she is not mine.
Holy big photos batman! Thumbnails lol
BTW my non horsey fiancée took these photos, so they aren't the greatest for jumping critiquing but you can see a bit :)
