Not much of a critiquer...Just be careful not to push your stirrups too far forward into a chair seat. Remember...Shoulder,hip,and heel. Congrats on doin well your first IHSA show!

Thank you!! I noticed my legs got pushed out a lot by the second day (new horse) so I'll try to keep that in mind.

Nice! When I show, we keep our left arm hanging down at out just looks different.

Just pull those legs back. You guys look superb! :)

Keep that leg back, and remember to smile once in a while!

Haha....yeah, the smiling...i'm sure that'll come the more I show bc right now, i'm too concentrated on making sure everything gets done when i'm in the ring riding!! Lol

Yeah, we were taught to hold both of our hands at the same level, kind of like you're holding a tray full of glasses of if you're hands are not level, the water will spill

I knoticed you used a different saddle on the second day that could be why you knoticed your legs getting pushed forward I have a saddle that does that to me in photo 7,9,10,11,12 your hand were not even it would probley be better to have your hand resting on your thigh. I'v seen alot of people do that though the last few years mostley in the AQHA shows but it's alot easier to have your hand resting on your thigh. I also noticed that in some of the photos you are leaning forward a bit if you rotate your hips and sit deep it would help alot. Alot of people have a tendency to look at thier horse when they first start showing and in all of your photos your looking up nice job! Over all you look 100 times better then I did at my first show lol
