Very pretty horse first off, and also you look fine to me, but I know nothing about jumping.

Ok well i'm only learning about jumping right now. I wish I could help you alot but I really can't I can only tell you things that I have read and might notice.

Well first off your doing really good I like this its great.

Maybe its just me but your feet seem a little out there not sure about that though because like I said I don't do jumping i'm only learning because I want to do it but I can't at the moment.

Overall I think you look good and that's all I noticed.

I can help!! Lovely appy, I only see 2 things and that is your shoulder should be more lined up and sturdy looking, and your hands need to be together with your thumbs on top. Hope this helped!

Very nice! The only thing I can say is to get your elbows in more and give a little more release, as you are in your horses mouth a bit too much.

I definitely agree with the release. You leg is excellent.

Wow :o Excellent leg!!! I love your lower leg, and your heels, very nice!! Wonderful job

A little more release wouldnt hurt, but in saying that, I wouldnt go much more... Your riding is fantastic!! Nice looking horse too

Keep up the great work

Beautiful, classic, strong position! Anything we can say is very nitpicky and just polishing. As has already been said, bring your elbows in and give just a hair more of a release.

LOVE your strong leg position. Your stirrup length is perfect, your lower leg is strong, your heels are down, all of which gives you a strong base of support. I like that your eyes are up and already looking for the next fence.

The only other small thing you could work on is flattening your back and bringing your shoulders together. It looks like there is just slight curve in your back. Other than that, it's beautiful!
