everything seems to have been covered but I just want to say your horse is very beautiful! I love her.

Is your mare halter horse bred?

And what kind of english are you showing in--APHA breed english or open show english? Both want different things for the horse... hard to give you 'horse advice' unless I know what your showing. And everyone else has covered you. ;)

Wow! I have gotten quite alot of tips from the posts above! Thanks!

There is absolutely nothing else I can point out that hasn't already been said. So I'll just comment on how beautiful your horse is! I love her and I'm going to steal her!

I am very late to this thread, and the advise already given is more than adequate.

Let me say one thing....I really appreciate the OP's attitude. How often have we had people post in the critique when they really did not want anything said but how incredible they are. Then, their nose gets bent when people offer good critique.

It is delightful to see someone who really wants to improve and accepts advise with an open mind and grace. WELL DONE, OP!!

You and your horse are a lovely team and you two have a great future.

I am not going to comment on your riding because JDI has pretty much said it all. However, I was one of the contestants in the 4h judging competition that you rode in this past week and noticed a couple things there. First, your horse is SO CUTE. She has beautiful movement and an adorable face. That being said, she needs to be slowed down. I wanted to place you as a team so much, but she was very very quick and needed a lot of collecting. If you could get her to slow down and work off her hind end you two would be amazing together and you would be able to perform much better equitation patterns. :]

Oh wow, I know this is old but I just saw this last comment.

Thanks, iJump. Yeah, there were quite a few of you guys there at the competition and I know that had partly to do with my performance. I was really nervous. :)

Any other comments, anyone?
