Riding Critique. Tear us apart.

I finally have pictures of me riding my horse. I am looking for a critique on me and my horse so, tear us apart!! :) I had to edit the photo, to make it the correct size for HF to upload my picture!! :) I have been a little stiff lately because I haven't rode a lot. My inner thighs actually hurt because I rode so much the last time. So, tear us apart.

Yeah, that's the problem. I hate that I have to resize them to upload them to HF. I'll try to fix that.

ummmm still, they are not good enough for critique. Your clothes are similar colours to your horse, there is quite a distance and details are not clear, so the only thing one could critique is why you don't wear a helmet, since you are free jumping on snow. And that maybe, you are not rising enough when jumping without saddle.

But it looks like you had fun out there ^_^

Horses have a great sense of humor...

i though that was bareback. though they aren't great pics from what I can see keep your shoulders back while jumping. Also, I know its bareback but try to adopt a seat with your legs further back on the flat. It looks a bit as if your seat is like you are sitting on a chair. Release your hands forward a bit when you jump, might be the picture, but it looks like you are holding them at his withers (holding on?) (he looks free in the face but its not a good position for you)

this is mostly guessing because of the pics but if you have the originals and they are crisper see if you can pick out any of these things, or just think about it while you ride. :) hope to see some new pictures up soon
