    I love the second one the first one looks like you got a bit left behind your heel, hip, shoulder line isn't there but it looks like a one time thing. Your horse has a lovely expression and very tidy knees (I'm jealous)!! Where is that it looks familiar? Also I'd be interested to know what level your competeing at this year

    Thank you!
    Futureolympiceventer- its at cteta/ horse park at woodside..... love the place!

    Im still competing bn.... i'm looking for a horse who I can move up levels w/ b/c I am schooling a lot bigger stuff but the horse in the pic that I was leasing for awhile is very mare-ish... sometimes we would get to a show and she'd be all ready and other times she wouldnt jump ANYTHING and would be all tense in dressage... nothing at all physically wrong w/ her... just her being a princess and only doing things when she wants to hahah.. I still love her to death tho!!

    I agree that you look a little left behind in the first one, with your lower leg forward, but its a very honest lokking horse that obviously enjoys what its doing and you look very secure and comfortable in your position. Looking up and forward. Very nice in general.

    You guys are a cute pair!

    In the first pic you look left behind as a result of a funky distance. You've done a nice job keeping your position despite this, just next time try to give your horse more release.

    I can't tell much from the second pic, because half your leg is hidden behind the standard. From what I can tell, you leg seems to have rolled back a very teensy bit- redistribute contact to the inside of your leg. Point your toes forward and angle your stirrup so that the insided branch leads the outside. This will help keep your ankle supple.

    I'm wondering if your stirrups in the secong pic are a smidge too long, causing you to lift your seat way out of the saddle. Your not ahead of the pommel, just up to high. This is a mild form of jumping ahead, but you seem like a smart rider who really rides with her horse.

    I love your release! You have such a nice feel on your horses mouth, and your hands are pressed into his neck offering you support. Good job!
