You look a little like you're jumping ahead in some pics but otherwise I think you look good.

Your lower leg looks strong and very good. Release is really good, especially in the second and sixth pic.

You do overjump a little, but not very much.

You look almost picture perfect!!!!!! Your horse is beautiful!

You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

I'd say that you are getting too ahead of your horse, and that you could maybe push your heels down a little farther. Other than that, you look great!

Your horse is BEAUTIFUL! lol.You look really good. The only things i would say are to make sure your not infront of his/her motion, or "jumping ahead". Also try to keep a more steady connection over the jumps. But you guys look rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy good

I think you look very good! Your leg is strong and not sliding back, and your release is very nice. It's been mensioned already, but I think the only problem is the jumping ahead. You are coming out of your seat a little, which I have a habit of as well. What I did was drop my stirrups so I wouldn't be pushing myself up with them. Good luck, and beautiful horse!

Hmm, okay well then.

The main critique I have it your hands. They're laying on your horse's neck a lot more often than not and they seem handcuffed together half the time.

Think like you're holding two ice cream cones in you hand. Don't spill the icecream!

When you're not handcuffed, it either ne hand a thirdup the neck and one atthe whithers, or they're laying on the side of the horse's neck.

Think about keeping your hands about a third of the way up your gorgeous horse's neck and above his mane.

Your eyes are pretty good and your leg is fairly constant.

One last thing - you roud your back a little. Try to keep your back straight but in the same angle to your hips. Don't be a turtle dearie!

It really comes from not anticipating your horse. It's my biggest problem as well, and I think it originates from being so afraid to bump your horses back (as we're schooled is a huge no-no) that we jump out of the tack way to soon. Approaching a jump you should be seated quite firmly in a "driving" motion and then wait for your horse to jump and follow with him.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
