    Yeah I really need to lift my hands up more and thumbs on top!
    Those pics are from the summer. I still need to work on putting thumbs on top but its a bad old habit that will take time to break but I carry my hands higher now:)
    Thanks:)

    I agree with the piano hands but I love your horse. The only thing I dislike is how you chased the horse so to take the jumps. Horses are prey animals and chasing the horse like that is just asking like a predator. I think you'd find that if you get him to want to take the jumps instead of making him take the jumps he'd take them better and better :)

    Foal
    He is amazing. He has a stunning jump, briliant coloring, and very nice conformation. Though I must point out he has a bit of a ewe neck. I would suggest just some neck flexes before and after rides, and ride him to the bid a lot, and maybe have him stretch lower when you are on him and off him... Just to get some muscle tone on top of his neck.

    Other than that I love him and want him!!

    Piano hands! Haha! And you could stretch your heel a little more. In the second jumping picture it looks like your stirrup is too long - your leg is almost straight and your body should stay over the center of the saddle, you are positioned over the pommel. Otherwise, you look great. Your shoulder is very open and your toes are in. Overall you look very balanced.

    Your horse is adorable! I love free jumping, it really helps the horse learn how to jump correctly without a rider getting in the way. I would do lots of free jumping because he appeared awkward in the video - he had a cute tuck when the jumps got higher, and towards the end he was using his neck and back nicely. A couple more sessions I'm sure would help him out. But he's super cute! You two seem like a great team. [=
