How's my EQ lookin'?!

Just thought i'd post some pictures to see what people have to say about my riding , my little man is a spit fire, i'm fully aware some of the picture he is flat and looks rushy, that's because in some of them he is but im not asking for critique on him , you are more then welcome to give it but don't be rude.
Me on the other hand, critique away, I want to hear what others think of my riding =]
Thanks guys!

And when we first started, before we figured out he hates bits.

I'm fully aware I am on his mouth in this picture ^^^ because when he first started he would grab the bit and run at any godforsaken jump he saw.

Let me know what you guys think! Thanks =D

I think you look okay. All though to me, it looks like your position is forced or you're trying too hard.

For my taste, you are lying too much on his neck. Sit up a bit. You are doing a great job of looking up and where you're going.

I like your stirrup length but I think you're gripping too much with the back of your calf and thigh. Try pointing your toes more forward and wrap your leg around your horse, not clenching him.

I'm not sure what's up with your release. In your old photos, you're hanging on him as well as in the first photo with the hackamore but with the other hacakmores photos, he looks great without you hanging on him. I think you could definitely start practicing an auto release.

The pics with the crest relase your horse jumped better. I think you should try and wait before you come out of the sadle let your cute little boy do the work instead of you. Try just leaning forward and putting your hands out and see how he lifts you.

horse advice, jumping
