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.

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:)

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?
