    You need to get your hand off of the horse's neck! You have the reins choked up and your hands are all the way up on the horse's neck resting in place and never moving. Correct equitation calls for a straight line from elbow, hands, to bit. That way you have correct contact with the horse's mouth. It's better if your hands don't rest on the horse's neck and that your thumbs are up and turned SLIGHTLY inward, making an invisible X. Hands are especially important in eq classes and dressage. Having correct eq, however, leads to better rides even if its a hunter or jumper class.

    I like your forward seat when you're jumping but try to sit deep and back when doing flat work and dressage. :)

    1st Video (Practice Season May)
    I really liked how you kept the horses gait even and controlled, very well done. I noticed over fence that your lower leg is slipping back just the slightest bit.

    One thing I would like to ask other members of the forum about is that your "rocking" your upper body slightly with the horses motion - if this makes sense? Not like your locking in with the horses movement or doing it due to being unbalanced. But I was just wondering if this is something that your "meant" to do or if you would be marked down for it during a show.

    You kept your turns very nice and round and also you and the horse you are riding both look balanced.

    2nd Video (002)

    In this video you aren't continuously riding in what I would call " A light two point" (?). From a point of view from someone who knows near to nothing about hunters I like it more because from what I understand it helps you in aiding your horse forward with a solid seat.

    From what I could see you need to bring your heels down a bit more but because of where the filming is done from I found it hard to tell but it looked like you were dropping your toe. I liked how you kept the horse at the same gait the whole time, even when there was a large amount of room before the fence you didn't allow the horse to rush forward.

    Third Video -

    In this over the second fence I really like your position you are releasing and have your heels down and a stable lower-leg you are holding yourself and your horse (the one that you are riding) together nicely! You are not asking the horse to hold you.

    Last video -
    I choose not to critique this one due to the distance between the horse and the camera - I also felt this one was difficult to critique due to this.


    Shall get onto some more very soon!
