    Nice horse!!

    I really like your release, it's not over exagerated, and your not catching your horse, awesome!
    I think you need to lengthen your stirrups a hole or two, looks like your knee is coming off your saddle, your legs are so long! Sit down and wait for the horse to come too you, looks like your a bit ahead of your horse in some of the pics. Try and roll your shoulders back to help sit up and wait.

    Ok thanks!

    I wouldn't lengthen your stirrups at all (unless your grow). If I had to say anything, I'd say don't pinch with your knee because it can make your lower leg swing back. You must be working with someone and it seems to be working! Keep taking their advice. Your release is beautiful.

    Goodness you're just a wee little thing and yet your legs are 10 feet long! I think you've got a pretty nice base. It looks like your horse jumps a bit under himself... and grids will help with that a bit, of course.
    Only thing I might say, is to back your foot out of your irons juuuuust a bit. Get that heel down so you can flex at the ankle nicely over the fences.

    Ok thanks everyone!

    Wow, I thought my legs were long! All I can see is the pinching with your knee. Try and work on redistributing the contact more through your lower leg. That will help the weight sink down into your heels more. Otherwise looking good!

    Thanks so much for the help everyone! You are all so nice and friendly :)
