    I don't know anything about western... but I must say that your horse looks like he enjoys the job, has a lovely expression, and you keep him in a very nice frame.
    Congrats on such a successful showing!

    Most of the comments I get are about upper body, and I know that's where I have more trouble but does anyone want to comment about my leg position?

    It kind of looks like your right stirrup is a little bit longer than your. In some of the pictures your leg is in a great picture and in some it has slipped forward on you, not badly but enough to notice.

    Your sitting up fairly straight and pretty deep in the saddle but you need to bring those shoulders back and look up. (I know you are watching to see if you've got headset - we all do it).

    I would probably ride with a little bit loser rein, that's why you are looking a teensy bit crooked, because you are trying to ride with a loose reign but you have them too short.

    Over all I think you look great and your horse looks happy and without any irritation. I think you are on the right track. Keep it up!

    Thank you very much! I totally see what you're saying about having a looser rein. When he stretches his neck out I tend to want to reach forward with him to give him more rein but I really just need to loosen it some instead so I don't start leaning forward. And thanks for the leg crit, I don't know about the stirrups- they're supposed to be the same length-maybe one of my legs in longer than the other!
