Wow, self are the most perfect example of a natural rider that I have ever seen! You look fantastic! I would bring your upper body back just a smidge, and then release a bit more.

I hope you are planning to have a career as a trainer. I would hate to see all that talent going to waste at a desk job. :)

Maura makes a good point about your horses uneven position. I would love to see more pics to see if it was more of a one-time thing, or a frequent occurrence.

The thing that concerns me is the fit of your saddle. That big gap between his back and the saddle makes me think it's probably too tight in the shoulder. What size tree is it?

I actually want to be an equine vet :) but i hope to be able to keep riding and maybe take in a few to be trained. the saddle has a medium tree, but it has the interchangeable gullet. it doesnt seem to bother him, but if i were to put it in a larger size would that make it lower on his withers? he has decent sized withers and i wouldnt want it rubbing. but if that wouldnt be the case, then i would deffinately try a different size :) thanks again guys :) And ill post some other pics when im not using my phone, he favors landing on his left lead so, that probably is the case, he also tends to jump to close to the right of the standards. unfortunately i havent been able to ride in the last couple weeks due to weather, time change and i got my wisdom teeth out last week :( but oh well, it happens lol
