    Ok need to lift yourself up more when jumping and when sitting there when your horse isnt moving just remember it hepls to keep your back staright ALL the time. 1. It helps your back be balnced and stable. 2.and it helps you get into the habbit

    Yeah I agre about the straightness I know that my shoulders ned to go back. About the lift myself up more do you mean out of the saddle?

    Sorry the 'e' key on my keyboard is playing up...

    I don't have a lot of time but I'll try to throw my $.02 in.
    First row, first picture: I'd like to see a bit more energy from the horse. If this compromises a pretty head set, that's ok. We want to focus on the quality of the gait above all. That said, a bit more energy- looks a bit heavy on the forehand. Not much though. Also, I'd like to see you bring your leg back a tad.
    First row second picture: Very nice; body position. Both horse and you are very straight and forward. Very good.
    Second row first picture: A bit tense. Could use relaxation without losing forwardness.
    Second row, second picture. Again, very good. However, you have drawn your leg up. Stretch your leg and your position will better.
    Third row, first picture: Very good bend all the way through the body. Just be sure to maintain contact with the outside rein. This will keep the shoulder from popping out, the horse bending with it's nose rather then body and only your inside rein creating the bend. I'd also like to see you sit straighter. Stretch your legs downward and turn your shoulders with your horse's shoulders. You seem to be a bit off center of the horse's back. I may be wrong. It is easy to be thrown off center in the circle when trying to bend. If needed, place more weight on the inside stirrup.
    Third row, second picture: Already mentioned - straight out a bit. I can't tell the height of the jump but you may be close to over jumping.
    Forth row, first picture: Very very good. The only thing I can really comment on is bringing your leg back a touch, thumbs upward and look up. The horse is forward yet relaxed. Be careful, he looks to be going slightly under the vertical, but not enough to cause great concern.
    You are an excellent rider. I look forward to watching how you progress.
    PS Was this at a show?

    I think the above did a good job with the critique --- I do want to ask though how you are lucky enough to get such a nice looking ground to go on? It looks absolutely perfect! Which part of NSW is it? I went to Australia a few years ago and I would like to go back sometime in the future; it would be nice to base that around a good equestrian centre!

    Thanks Kristy I will work on all of these things. Yeah the ones in a blue jumper are at a school competition from earlier this year. The jumping ones and the front on flexion one is at my ponyclub grounds we had 2 eventing riders/trainers teach us for the day. I think the jumps were about 85cm.

    Dave it is at the Sydny International Equestrian Centre where the Sydney Olympics were held- the surfaces are really good and the centre is beautiful.

    Ah that makes sense why they are so good then! Do you live around Sydney? I was there in 2004 with a choir tour on a homestay sort of thing and while I of course saw all the famous sites I was also in one of the suburbs of which I have forgotten the name! I think it may have been Epping - would this be right? *makes mental note to do some digging*

    EDIT: It was actually North Balgowlah... don't know where I got Epping from!

    Epping is a sydney suburb- the questrian centre is actually in Horsely Park and it's a 30-40 min drive from my place so not to far! Sydney has some nice places did you go to Taronga zoo, the harbour bridge etc?

    Hehe I was actually in North Balgowlah - I edited it later!
    Horsely park is quite a suitable name I must say! Naturally I went to the Opera House, the boat trip and over the Harbour Bridge - I really wanted to walk over it (as in over-over - pulleys etc.) but then we found that it was very expensive and would take something like 9 hours... :( We also did the walk to Lady Macquarie's Chair, went to Manly Beach and more unusually sang in St. Mary's Cathedral. That was quite an unusual experience to see such an old looking building so close to such a new looking Sydney Tower. It would have been cool to go to the zoo but we instead went to a koala sanctuary near to Brisbane if I remember rightly. We did go to a homestead near to Sydney though which was very cool.
    Wow we did do a lot in 3 days...
    Oh BTW - Do you have a building in Sydney that tends to do a lot of Digeridoo concerts? I can't remember which place it was but it was great!
