I actually think this horse has a nice natural form over the fence I like how she uses her neck and rounds over the fence. She obviously doesnt know her spot yet, since she is either taking a long spot or short spot. Cavalitti, ground pole, and gymnastics will really benefit her. Her knees aren't even in every picture, but she's still green..that's something she can work on. She sure has a lot of potential.

As for you, your best shot is the 5th picture. You have a good leg, and a good release. But in every picture, except for 5, you are jumping way too far ahead. It looks like you actually on the horses neck. Try sitting longer and pushing the horse forward all the way to the jump, then 2-point when her front feet leave the ground. You are jumping for the horse, which later on can result in refusals, if it is not corrected.

I don't know if you are like that because the horse is green and you were concentrating more on going over than anything else, but look at picture 5, you and the horse look the best in this picture. Just try to achieve that every time you ride.

I agree with ErikaLynn and mom2pride about the horse.

Not a bad horse at all. Nice bascule.

I think part of her problem is her rider is jumping up her neck. For a green horse this can make figuring out what to do quite a bit more difficult.

The last picture was the best because finally towards the end i got more comfortable what I was doing and concentrating more.

Don't Dream it. Be it.

For being green she actually has a nice jumping form. She cracks her back over the jump and brings her knees up. Although she can't get her spots yet, putting poles a stride before the jump will help her. Gridwork would help balance her too, and get her more in shape (;
The only major problem I see with your eq is you're waaayyyy ahead of her, and on her neck. In some pictures it looks like you grip with your knees a little bit. Nice lower leg and release!
