xc critique please

here are some pics to critique from our xc schooling =] we schooled novice and she was really good, and only a little dramatic haha. This is her first time schooling novice, besides just a couple jumps here and there. She had a couple hesitations, but she's still learning and all and all she was awesome =]



Its hard to tell but the take off for this jump was very steeply down hill






This one is a bench


Drama queen ! There was a target on this jump that she HATED


Bucking bronco ?


Take 3 is a little better =P


Ground tying after our ride =]


Her first half coffin !! Its really a long 2 stride, but I held out for 3

You have a great position for xc, even on not so great jumps from your horse you stayed with Her. The jumps with that good distance and quality jump you look fantastic. First thing that came to mind was "eventer position" which to me is an eventer who will stay out of the horses way and be there for not great jumps( just repeated myself)

You have a great leg ! You will do very well in xc

thanks guys !!
My first trainer was all about surviving and getting things done, so I learned how to ride a bit rough and ready.

Myboypuck, you can't have her !!
