Nice horse... you two look cute together :)

-don't pinch your knees
-put your heels a bit more down
-center your half seat and stretch up, remember the horse will close your hip angle for you, you don't have to do it yourself
-when jumping smaller, remember to get you bum out of the saddle :)
-great job looking ahead while jumping! thats a great skill to have!
-nice release too
-have fun! lol

Thanks so much! He certaintly has changed ALOT personality and look wise(and with his training; Completly different horse) Selling horses is always hard :( But it looks like you have a very cute one now Oh and no stealing! Hes my life!

Your stirrup needs to be on the ball of your foot, which will help you with your heels quite a bit.

I agree with what everyone else has said in terms of his conformation and your equitation!

But, he's running on his front end in the flat pictures; simply being lazy (like my pony! Haha). Really work on having him use his end end to push himself rather than pull himself with his front end. This will also help him use himself over the jumps rather than just soaring over them like he's doing now. Take him back over some smaller fences and push him to not take off so far away, this will make him lift himself and actually work over the fence.
But, the best thing you can do for him is work him on the flat really though. :)

I really do like him though! He's a really cute horse who just needs to be taught how to travel while balancing a rider.
