various horses- flat & o/f

Hello all! I'd appreciate it if you would critique me riding please! None of these horses are mine; since selling my horse this past winter, I've been riding all sorts of horses at my barn. All of these photos are from the past two months (the first horse and the show pictures are from May. The first bay is June. The rest are more recent- past two weeks, I believe. The most recent is one the bay where I'm wearing the purple polo- two days ago). Thank you so much!

^^This one probably isn't much good for critiquing, but my face IS humorous (:

Oh goodness no! Haha, I don't have nearly enough money to own all of those horses... sure would be nice though! I did own my own for two years, but sold him at the end of January (since I'm going to college in the fall... we thought he'd take six months to sell, took two weeks instead). So since then, I've been riding horses for people on vacation, people who don't make it out to the barn regularly, people who pity my horselessness, whatever. I miss my horse, but riding all of these different horses has been really good experience for me.

Hi there gem...
I love the concentration on your face...If your not holding your face right it does not work...thats what a friend always tells me when I am concentrating on
The only things I noticed was on flate being a bit ahead of your horse or leaning forward. One of the flat picks looks as though you could be in the middle of a transition from one gait to a different or fast pace.
Most jumping ones look pretty good other then maybe a bit to close to your mounts neck...
Other then that...all pics were pretty good...and again I loved the concentration! :)

You have a nice jumping position
On the flat you are leaning forward too much, just relax!
Your toes r pointed out, they should be pointed strait.
In the 7th pic you and the horse look super good!

Wow, you are a really solid rider! You are well above my ability so no critique. But you are a very good rider!

Thanks (: And Sparkles, no, I don't. Right now I'm living in Texas (but moving to South Carolina in three weeks!)... But I did live in Pennsylvania a few years ago. I showed PJHSA though, not NPHA.
