    You obviously know exactly what you're doing. You are so lucky to be able to wear a t-shirt in the middle of january!!!! I hate you! I couldnt dream of wearing even a hoodie here! Your position is really good. I think you guys look lovely and as posted above, I absolutely love your breastplate. Definitely going to go on my must by list.

    Great photos! You have a very good photographer!

    First I'd like to say there's ALOT of good advise on this post! Not just "this is what you should do", but "this is how you do it". Awesome thread.

    Second, I think you pretty much have a good idea of what you were needing to work on - you have a good eye, even in critiquing yourself. I agree with alot of the advise posted, but one thing I'd like to add is that on your release you almost look to be putting a little bit of weight onto his neck instead of holding it all on your legs. I think this might contribute to why your leg slips back? I'm not saying you're full out leaning on his neck, but "propping" in a couple of them. I'm totally guilty of this too, which is why I picked it out! LOL! Guess we can both work on it! For me, I've found if I tell myself to "push my butt out" (I know how dumb that sounds...) then it puts me back over the saddle where I want to be and helps to keep my own leg in place!

    Anyway, you look good overall and I'm confident in the effort you'll put into getting better for yourself and your gorgeous horse! For an OTTB I thought him a little thick though haha I love seeing horses with some meat on them! ALL my mares are chunky! :)

    Haha I like them thick! He was really scrawny as a 3 year old when I got him, but he has really filled out nicely. Thanks again everyone, They're all really good critiques!
