JDI, I completely agree.
Charlibum, you asked for advice, even placed in the title "tear me apart" and yet you cannot take the simplest of advice.
Then again you try to shell it out like you know it all too... there seems to be a lot these teenage/young adult "knowitalls" on here.
If you're coming onto forum to ask for advice/critique, you should be prepared that not all opinions will suit your own. And that's fine, you can ignore those opinions. However, when you argue the point back and be rude about it, it's not only going to end up trailing OFF the topic at hand, but make your future attempts for critique ignored/met with negativity. I checked out several of your threads, and see that you ask for advice but seem to hardly follow up on it. Why bother? I could totally respect someone who posts for advice but improves in at least something, or at least tries, but your signals for attention are foolish and only going to end up with people continuously pointing out what you need to fix. It's up to you to take that on board, or forever "joke" or defend yourself in these threads.
Onto the photos at hand. I agree with everyone else. You need to come back and solidfy your seat. You're far too out of your tack. You also need to work on your release as your hands have slipped too far down your horse's neck. It's good to see you looking ahead however, as that is usually a big fault of most jumpers. I personally think the jumps need to be made smaller in order for you and your horses to improve your styles.
I wish you all the luck. Nice to see I'm not the only one suffering with a ton of grass at the moment too.
