you look great! the only thing is that i can see is that you should point your toes a little bit more forward, rather than out. that way it will be much easier to keep your heels down and legs straight! But other than that you look great! love to know how you did!

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?
her toes seem to be in line with the girth to me, thats where they should be

I've never heard of this rule. Regardless where your girth and toes meet, your body should be directly over the leg with a straight line allowed to pass through the head, shoulder, hip and ankle.

I was just suggesting that her lower leg could do with being a little further forward. I think she looks great.
It is just my opinion.
