WOW! You both look fantastic. Your horse seems to be a very talented jumper (and reiner... lol). The only things I noticed is that you turn your toes out too much (they should be pointing forward) and that your leg slides back when you're jumping sometimes but other than that you look great. I also noticed that in one of the jumping pics it looks like you dropped your stirrup and you still look super.

Oh and could you please share how you did at your show? I would love to know.

In the first pic it looks like you had the wrong lead.

You're consistently leaning to the left when you jump. If you've been jumping like that for a long time it probably feels normal. So jump so that it feels like you're to far to the right. I'd start low because it'll probably feel like you're off balance until you get used to it. Have someone take pictures of you with a digital camera from the front or the back so you know when you've got it right. Check the pic after each jump.

BTW, how did you place in your classes? I thought you and your horse looked quite good.

hey thanks guys!! I really apprieciate the advice! We actually did rather good, we took 2nd in training level 1 for dressage and 3rd for first level dressage I took 2nd in both hunt seat eq, and hunter pleasure, I took first in english trail, jumper 3'3, jumper 3'6 and gamblers choice (jumper classic thingy). And I almost took first in my 3 foot jumper class but I did the regular course instead of the jump of course... lol I felt so stupid!! . But I am really happy with the results we got so many complimants!! I am just so proud because I trained him to jump myself ! We have come so far together and I am just so proud of him!!

You look really good! Your horse has amazing jumping form. I love the refusal picture. I would get it framed and put it on my wall! Lol!

Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!

What a cute horse. Was interesting how each photo is so different from the last one. Great horse you have being able to be so flexible in all the different classes you went into. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun.
Thanks for sharing the photos

Great photos! The refusal one looks awesome & you look really secure in your seat still! In a couple of the bigger jumps it looks like your upper body has dropped almost below the level of the crest of his neck and to one side. Dusty looks really content in those jumping pictures!
