    Wow you look fab!
    Where abouts in UK was it?
    Only thing I would say, is lower legs could do with being a bit further forward, and arms look a little too straight/no give but overall, good seat, good straight back, you look great. How did you do?

    You look great. But I have to agree with Hunter Girlie. You do look like your looking down a bit. But you and your horse look great. All snazzled up!

    Lower your stirrups about 3 holes.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Since you have no stirrups your leg still needs to be lengthened. If your legs have drawn up the way they have, you are clinging with your legs rather then sitting with a deep seat. You can have a relaxed and elongated leg while still having the invisible line drawn throughout your body. When you have lengthened your leg and relaxed your hip joint, your leg will naturally fall under you, correcting any forced position. You can see the forced position in your ankle as well, it is very stiff. Relaxing from the hip will help eliminate this also.
    I can't quite tell, but I believe your wrist are crooked as well. Thumbs upward and no puppy dog paws.
    And if we are to be VERY picky, I would like to see more engagement from your horse. He/she is not quite tracking up. This could be do to stiffening up your position and enclosing your horses energy. When you are able to relax your seat rather then grip on, a larger more engaged trot won't be difficult to sit.
    Very lovely pair!
