Okay, check out this picture and then look at yours again.
You can easily tell the problems you are having.
Actually it look pretty good other then I would say your back is too arched. It almost looks like you are trying to pop your butt out. Haha
You have to not have to much arch in your back, but without slouching.
Also maybe try and lean down on the horse a little further.
Your way to ahead of your horse. When your in two point, you want the horse to jump you out of the saddle; almost like you're doing nothing. The way to do this is keep your hips behind you. Keep your elbows closer to your side, but not too close. Shorten your reins a bit, but still let your horse have its head. I'm not really good with this, but maybe your pinching at the knee(?).
You have an adorable pony and a good heal position.
I actually used to have this problem with my back, arching it too much. It's almost like an old "style", but we like flat back now. A good way to think of it, is instead of thinking of less arch in the back, think of sucking in your belly button. It feels really really strange at first, but with time it starts to feel natural.
Like the others said, you are ahead of your horse, wait for him/her to jump up to you, instead of getting ahead of the motion. If you feel comfortable with this, and you have a trainer/helper around..... drop your reins though a grid and don't hold on with your hands. This will make you balance so fast, because you can't get a head of your horse, or it won't be pretty and you will be scrambling to grab onto something. But if you are confident enough and your horse is sane enough, I really recommend trying it, it will help a lot.
Good job keeping those shoulders back and looking up to where you are going.
Thank you guys sooo much. Her name is breezy mae for those who asked haha. And I arched my back ( ...naturally) then tried to "suck in my belly button" and I felt my back and it did feel a little less arched! Thanks for your help....now I know where to post my critique pictures!!!
Your heel is down, your back is flat, and you are looking ahead. You have great basics.
Shorten your stirrups a BIG two holes. The angle in your knee is almost 180 degrees when you want it to be 110. It is offering you little support right now. A shorter stirrup will give you a lighter seat.
It will also help ALOT with your jumping ahead. Riders with long stirrups will throw themselves ahead in an attemt to try and keep up with their horse... exactly what you are doing. A shorter stirrup will put you in a good position to stay centered over your horse as he jumps, and you won't need to throw your upper body forward.
Your release is nice, you are giving your horse a nice big rein which he probably enjoys. Remember to press your hands into his neck to give your upper body support. As you progress, try to establish a bit more contact over the jump. At this point though, your contact is fine.
Your horse is cute! He looks like he took off way to early. He is already unloading his front end in an effort to clear the jump. His feet should be in an imaginary 4' by 4' box in front of the jump. But that can vary according to the type of fence.
Roll your groundlines out to the base of the standards, to help him with his takeoff and try to ride him more to the base of the jump.
Once you get that stirrup fixed, you will make a nice rider!!! Keep up that awesome work!!
