    Flat + Jumping Critique

    It was hard choosing pictures for critique but I think these are my 5 best pictures from Wednesday.







    Self critique:

    Flat
    * my feet are too far foward
    * at the trot I'm leaning a bit
    * spread my hands a bit more
    * thumbs on top!

    Jumping
    * upper body back / taller
    * elbows in (chicken wiings!!)

    You also round your back when over jumps, like a cock roach! :)) You are a bit behind the verticle in the 3rd picture. I don't see any major problems that you havn't already addressed, great job!

    Your legs look good! I would also say sit up a bit more, you are leaning forward which I do terribly but you are looking good

    Your flatting pictures look SO much better! Congrats!

    Remember to keep your leg below your body, and let the horse close your hip angle.
    In the past photo, the whole thing seems.. off. It looks like your horse jumped you so far ahead of the motion, you seem to be in good position, but about 5-7 inches ahead of where you should be - or am I just crazy?
    Keep working on a nice flat back too :)

    I'm not sure... I remember trying to make sure I stayed closer to the saddle instead of being over the pommel but I'll wait to get a second opinion on that one. XD

    I think you need to let the horse close your hip angle- it looks like you are ducking too close to your horse's neck, especially in the first jumping picture. Also, on the flat and over jumps, try to tough your shoulder blades together and sit up tall because it looks like you are slumping over. I am really envious of your leg positioning!

    You guys look good! For he jumping pictures, lower your hands about two inches for a textbook crest release :) that way it serves its purpose of providing support for you without getting in the horses way (not saying you're in your horse's way in these pictures, it's just a trend that has started of having a too high crest release)

    I agree, your self-critique was perfect. After all, you are your best critique.
