I'm jealous! I just started crossrails and wouldn't even dream of taking a photo. You look great - I am impressed and hope to look that "together" sometime.

I love that you're starting small and taking your time. When not jumping, work on your jumping position by spending a lot of time in two point and working to sink your weight into your heels and keep your leg soft and relaxed wrapping around the horse. Good luck!
I agree.

Also, when you are releasing try not to let your elbows go out. In the first photo it looks like they are sticking out.

But again, for your second time you are doing great.
