New Jumping Pics :D

Me and Bru:

And Fi from a little open hunter show. Photos copyright to Jump the Moon photo so just links. I'm noticing I'm taking my knee off...:

^This last one you can really tell I'm taking my knee off... not really sure why. I know I'm not gripping with the back of my calf, despite my turned out toes - that's my natural foot conformation. Yes, I have duck feet xD Still not sure why my knee is flapping in the wind though...

Going to be a difficult photo to critique from that angle. No critique from me but you have an absolutely adorable little pony. Obviously tries so hard. Adorable

You might be slipped back, and he's dangling his leg. It dosent look like its going to hit the rail but its not as tight as it could be.

M2G: I was hoping the photos from the show were going to be a at a better angle but sadly no :\ They are at a slightly better angle than the one on Brutus though.

Sillybunny: He is dangling one leg but his knees are very tight and even and he's rounding through his neck and back so I don't really think its an issue. But I'll keep an eye out and if it starts to be a habit I'll try and fix it.

Its hard to critique you but I see a few things:
Hands up
Toes in
Your horse needs to get his tuck more even.

Hands up?

Could you be more specific?

Cute horse/pony! Only thing I really noticed was stretch your hands up his neck a bit further, don't put to much pressure on your hands though since this will put weight on his neck.

I'm doing a short release, so IMO the hands are in the appropriate area for a short crest release. Trying to get in the groove of doing an automatic with him but it is a lot harder than with Fiona as he is a lot thrustier and has a lot more bascule.

Anyone have any comments for the other pictures? The ones I linked too...

Well, I think all of them are great!
