Horse and Equitation crit

I'm curious and bored lol

Here's my horse when we first got him... and he still had his man parts (atm he still thinks he has them but its all a lie!)


^^ He looks like he's smelling the flower my trainer is holding!

Here are some jumping pics... just a note I ditched that helmet and got a new one.. it was too big and I was going around courses most of the time with it in my eyes... super annoying and yes potentially dangerous.





^^These are from late spring last year..? maybe? lol

Thanks for the compliments, constructive crits are welcome. It's always nice to have fresh eyes (especially regarding his comformation since I'm blinded by love lol)

The only thing that I would like to see is a little more release.

He's sure built!

he's pretty, really pretty... I'm not sure if his head up so high is a good thing, so maybe you should loosen the reins and give him more release.. Also try not to jump laying down on his neck (see the controversial two point in the jumping section) it can interfere with his jumping. ;)

Thanks I actually am not laying down on his neck physically if thats what you mean, because if I did I'd rip out the jewelry I do have based on his movemeny lol.

After having read the other thread lol (and taking a shower after a long day at fair..) let me clarify.. I do not two-point on course because my trainer won't let me. I have to maintain three-point contact between fences unless its some sort of bounce or two strided in and out (which then knowing me I'd just look sloppy and mess something up lol)

Agree on the release though lol

Here is a more recent picture from two shows ago (so a couple months) I don't know if this is more your idea or if you still think I'm laying on his neck. I two-pointed once in a clinic and I got my butt chewed by clinician and trainer alike EEeep! if not eh I don't know lol
