Jumping Critique

Unfortunately I only have pics not videos of me jumping. What are some things you can tell from the pics that I should work on and try to correct in my jumping position? (Ignore the horrible jumping faces ) Thanks!

My first instinct is to say that you're ducking down too much over the fences, bring your shoulders up and back a little bit more and try not to lay on your horses neck. Rotate your feet so your toes are pointing forward, not straight out.

I actually don't think you have either of those issues. Depending on your conformation, your toes should probably not point straight forward. That is a common misconception.

But they shouldn't point straight out to the sides either, you need to find the happy middle ground. In a lot of pictures her lower leg is clearly rotated enough that her toes are jutting straight out to the sides, and that's definitely going to cause some pain in the long run.

That's only because she's pinching with her calf a little too much and should probably shorten her stirrup a hole. It really had nothing to do with the foot.
To have your toes point straight forward you would have to be pigeon toed.

I thought your toes were suppose to point where they would naturally if you were standing on the ground? OP, lookin' good. Maybe try a hole shorter, but it's a judgement call.
