Question Tell me what you see and how to improve :)

These are pictures fromm all this winter, spring is creeping up on us and would like to hear what you have to say about these pictures:)

What have we improved on?
what do we need to still work on?

Right now my biggest thing is getting my upper body to relax and my shoulders back, my ride is drastically better in helping support and balance him when I have my shoulders back.

Just gotta keep telling my self to pretend Im showing off a million dollar bra

Overall, you look great! Yes, bring your shoulders up. Also, have more bend in your elbows, in a few of the pictures they look almost completely straight

For without a horse, i could not fly.

Really short stirrups in a lot of those photos. Good form and remember to round out your shoulders

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

pretend that you have two huge, heavy angels wings attached to your shoulder blades that are pulling your entire upper half back and down. Sounds crazy but always works for me. Oh, and put a little more bend and flex into your elbows

I agree with others on the elbows and stirrups. It also looks like you're pinching with your knee in a couple of the pictures but that may just be the angle as I only see it in a few. Overall very nice.

In the second photo I believe your stirrups may be a little short.

Just keep your shoulders rounded/back.

You look great! :)
