Jumping Critique

Hi there,

Hoping you'd beable to critique my jumping, photos aren't as recent as I'd have liked but there the latest I have on this laptop.

The mare I'm on is mine, she's 14.2HH and I've had her for 2 years. She didn't really know how to jump before I got her. All advice appreciated.

In the first picture I really like your leg and your balance over the saddle. the second picture you look a little ahead of the motion and in both pics you seem pretty far out of the saddle for the height of the fence.
As for your pony--pretty cute! A bit sloppy in style over the bank jump and tight but not even over the barrel jump
you guys seem like a good pair!

It looks like you're standing too upright when you two-point. Think of folding over your horse instead of standing up; there should only be space to fit a fist between your bum and the saddle. Nice release, though!

I think you look nearly perfect, and I like that your position allows your horse to stretch his neck & back freely when he jumps. My only critique is that in the first pic, you're looking down at him. Try to look up and forward!
