    New Critiques

    I have been going to some huge shows with the top riders at them and alot of them say that I have a solid base. I am going to a smaller show to compete in equitation classes and I want to look the best I can. So please let me know what I can fix. I know that sometimes I drop one shoulder farther than the other and any suggestions on how to fix that would be great! Thanks a lot! You can also critique the horses/ponies I'm not sure which ones (allowed to take 2)[img] I am taking yet so if you think I look better on one of them let me know thanks. And I will quit rambling on.ha ha ha

    Welsh cross pony
    14.0 3/4hh

    [I know I am sitting to early (old bad habbit) but this is a perfect picture of sabrina

    Basically a mut (ha ha ha)
    14.1 1/2hh

    I think I look horrible in this picture, but a lot of people like it, I still think it is horrible but I will put it up (from a month ago)


    Thanks again

    Try releasing more. And keeping your toes in. Other than that you and your horses look amazing =]]

    Give more with your hands. In some of the pics you seem to be leaning on the neck a little too with your arms.

    Also looks like you tend to dip your back a bit. On quebec your back is straight and nice but a couple of the others looked a bit like your were maybe leaning a little with your body too.

    Other than that your horses are gorgeous :) you do look quite solid to from the pics we have seen. I would take quebec and chloe :)

    Good luck

    Overall you look awesome... just a couple things...

    No ducking!! Lol (pet peeve of mine)

    Also, you look a little stiff in some pics, try to let the thrust of the horses jump bring you out of the saddle and let your hands follow

    But like I said you look really good! And ps I love the cow jump standards hahahah

    Good luck and I know youll do awesome in your classes!

    I would just say release more every time. Otherwise I think you look great!

    All your horses are gorgeous. =) Solid base makes me think of your position in the first pic- yea, you could be releasing a bit more, but you have a very..tight and together position. :) and as you said, your horse looks great. But you look pretty good in all the pics, aside from a few tiny exceptions like letting your lower leg slip back slightly and your back get too low.
    But overall your position is great, I would trade anyday! ;)
    And I am soo jealous of your leg position in those last two photos..

    You look good but your toes are pointing out, in one or maybe two of the photos your leg slipped back but as it only happened once or twice, its not so bad, just make sure its always forward. And you should also have a bit more release
    Good work though! You really do look nice

    Thanks for all the critiques!
    I don't know who I am taking yet, I am leaning towards Sabrina because she always has even knees, but she is a little more forward than most horses in the hunter ring (but if I keep the same pace I will place well). Quebec tends to pull a lot so I don't know if I am going to take him to equitation, because he likes to go and he is serioius in what he does. And chloe is more of a hunter pony because she has a nice steady pace but she doesn't always have even knees. Soooooo I still don't know ha ha ha

    Anyone else want to critique??
