    Arrow Flat critique? (Show)

    Some info:

    I am 16, 15 in horse show years. Comet is a 12 year old AQHA gelding, but he thinks he's a thoroughbred. (He does have lots of TB in him, so I guess it makes sense! Hehe)

    Let me know if the photo doesn't work. It should be public since it's her photography album, but I don't know fo' sho'.

    Your leg is too far forward and you seem to be leaning on your hands. Bring your shoulders back more to open your chest, lift your hands, and sort out that leg and your riding would improve a lot.

    Great job looking up and you cleaned up nicely :)

    There is too much roll in your lower back. Makes one pooch out their backside, and you cannot be on your seatbones in that position.
    Sit on horse, drop legs out of stirrups to let them hang. Lift them off he sides of the horse, let them flop back . Use your hands to pull the back , thick part of the thigh outward, so that your knee rolls inward. Sit up tall on the seatbones, then put your feet in the stirrups.

    Then, like sky said, open the chest and drop the elbows down and back. This will help to bring the thumbs up on top.

    Your turnout is very nice and horse is super cute..
