I'd say it's very good. Just your hands that should be on your horse's crest, and maybe you should not come out of the saddle that much. = )

We have been giving you advice for the past .. goodness knows how many months on how to improve.

The attitude "stop flatting and just do it!" is probably to blame.

Your friend is extremely lucky. That was not smart throwing a beginner horse and beginner rider (for jumping) over a fence that high. Again, the attitude scares me.

for the first picture - don't over exaggerate you position! Im sick of people flattening themselves against their horse's neck over tiny jumps, your not helping your horse, your making it harder for him! Let the horse jump the jump! Just relax!

Excuse me?
I think I ahve put up about 2 (tops) jumping critiques.

You need to jsut relax. I have a stable jumping potition, I ride for a reptible sport horse barn and the lady (A grade SJ in belguim and germany) is very pleased with me, I am not rich, mocha is not a bigginer at all she is a very ploddy horse., I can't afford lessons all the time, I mostly do flat work thank you very much, I barely jump at all, just at pony club and shows. And when I have time to ride to the arena.

Also get your bloody facts right first, she is not a bigginer rider, she just doesnt jump alot, she hacks all over the countryside and roads etc.
I hardly jump!!! I hardly jump!!

Oh, im sorry do you know me? No diddnt think so, do you know how stuck up you sound?

I agree with JDI...That was extremely stupid to send a "beginner to jumping" over a jump that high...And if you come on here asking for a critique and to tear you apart, take what people are saying...Maybe because of your ignorant attitude you won't apply the critiques but don't flip out and start yelling at people...Grow up and kindly accept critiques...In the adult world, you will get no where if you can not accept critique.

Good grief, take a chill pill.

You want to talk facts, the fact is your "stable" jumping position isn't going to be so stable if your horse trips. You're practically climbing up onto her neck and all it would take is a stumble or a light refusal to send you flying through the air - alone.

Don't ask for critiques if you can't handle the fact that riders much better then you don't share your "repitble" lady friend's so-called opinion. And don't post pictures of your friends if you can't handle the critiques you ASKED for.

There are a few I left out.
In my honest opinion, you could benefit from flat lessons only for 6 months to a year.
Not saying you're not brave and have an ok start, but you need a lot of refinement to get to the point where I feel you're completely safe over these heights.

Quoted for truth. Your friend's first time jumping EVER on her horse should be a nice cross rail, NOT the jump you threw her at.
