Two Point Critique?

Could someone tell me what I should work on in my two point. I am supposed to be doing the modified hunters (2'9, 3'0) next show season and I really need to work on my two point because my equitation sucks. :( And I think that if I work on my eq it will help my horse too. Thanks for any info you give me!

This jump is about 3'0 - 3'3.


And here is one closer.



And another...




Sorry for the sucky quality. But any help is majorly appreciated! Thanks!!

Are you talking about your jumping position or two pointing? You're only giving us pictures of you jumping. If you're concerned about your jumping position, I think you look really good and if you're looking to work on something, you could probably start learning how to do an automatic release because your jumping position looks really stable.

Yes I mean my jumping position. :) Sorry about that. This may sound stupid, but could you possibly explain to me what an automatic release in because I do want to practice. :) Thanks!

An automatic release is the next step up from the regular crest release. Instead of releasing your horse's face by placing your hands in your horses neck, your hands will follow your horse's face creating a straight line from your elbows to your horse's mouth.

With her left hand, Beezie Madden is doing a great example of an automatic release :)
