    There have been a huge amount of reports on your comment, it was uncalled for and not vey nice.

    Catty stabs?

    I wonder why

    Editing your comments and all the quotes containing you comments is going to take too much time.

    Please show a little more respect for your fellow Members from now on.

    To everyone else, the weight things ends now.
    Carry on with what this Thread is about........

    In xc it is far more stable to have your irons further back towards home.
    It's tough to gallop, jump banks, etc... With heels jammed down - it's easier with a stable platform.

    That being said I do think her heels could 've a titch lower - achieved by angling the stirrup.

    I'd too like to see more release in your hands. You can either have a longer rein, or move your hands up, your choice, but at the point of over the jump, your rein is too short in the horses mouth.

    The photos clearly go back and forth in age, I didn't pay enough attention, in some you were over jumping a bit and getting ahead of the pommel. I don't recall if they were the earlier or later photos. Just go with the flow more, you are not jumping for the horse, although that tends to be the hunter way, I don't believe it to be correct.

    I think you look great, you are a talented LITTLE rider. :) And it's clear that you are having a bunch of fun with your horse.

    You are a fabulous rider OP, for what it's worth coming from me :)

    I look forward to seeing more of you and your horse here! This is one story I could go out of my way to follow on the forum. :)

    Wow thank you everyone for being so nice! I am luckily able to brush most rude things people say to me off, and I don't think anyone could discourage me from the sport, but it is so nice to read all the wonderful comments!! :)

    Lovely position over jumps, good that you're looking to the next jump, or turning the hand slightly for correct canter lead after the jump! Just focus on keeping the stirrup at the ball of your foot and heels down!:)

    Absolutely amazing rider!
