    I took misty on holiday and we did a show while we were away, what do you think?

    I think that...
    My foot is too far through the stirrup and my heels arent down enough
    Hands to low, but she was being a wee bit strong!
    Then I am tipping forward a little

    what do you think of me n moo? X

    Not critique, but just curious. The stirrups look pretty long to me. Is that the way it should be? Somehow english (not dressage though!) always associated with very short stirrups for me.

    Anyone wanna tell me off for anything?

    I think you pretty much covered everything I would mention in your opening post. Maybe give her an inch or two of rein (since she's behind the bit and seems to be pulling you forward), hands up and elbows back and closer to your sides. That should let your body make that vertical line. You two look good together:)

    You look great, although you mentioned you were 33yrs old, you look pretty lil for a 33yr old??

    How old are you in the photo?

    You look pretty young in the pic lol!

    You need to push your heels down more and have a little less of your feet through the stirrup.

    Bring your hands up some more and straighten your back up a tad.

    What did you come in the event?
