    The pictures are a little small for me to see in great detail, but comparing these pictures to ones you posted a year ago, you have come a long way.

    I know that indoor ring very well.

    Nice leg and heel. You don't let your heel pop up in the two-point. Nice! I know it's popular to stay in a "forward seat" for Hunters, especially through a course. I tend to sit a little deeper, but, that all really depends on the judge. I always try to practice both, and then rely on my trainers/knowlege of the judge to adjust for each show. ;)

    Thanks guys. My trainer took my stirrups away for a month and hide them so I guess that helped.

    It's difficult to critique these pictures, so I'm going to focus on picture #3 and your flat photos.

    I'm not a huge fan of the forward seat, but I did utilize it when I was riding hunters. I'd like to see your back with less of an arch and maybe a little more relaxation in your arms (although it's definitely difficult to tell from still shots).

    In your third picture, your weight is way too far forward, like you flung yourself up your horses neck over the jump. Bring your weight back over the center of the saddle and lift your chest just a touch. Your release is also a bit big, your reins are drooping and looping down which means you dropped your connection over the jump.

    You look very good in each picture! My only critique would be when half seating, still try and keep your upper body a little more back, not too forward. But your jumping eq looks perfect!

    I love this team!! Horse and rider both look fantastic, and I love the venue you're showing at. Keep it up!! That no-stirrup work really helps!!
