Desert SportHorse Hunter/ Jumper show!

Mitch was a super star this weekend. He was amazing. We placed first in all of are classes and took champion. Are jump off was 29.1 and 33.1. I was so happy with him and I would be just as happy if we didn't place. :) We got a little bit of rain but nothing to bad. Had a great time over all and met a lot of great riders/trainers.
Ok pictures :P

And yes, I know I have things to fix but I am ok with it. Feel free to tell me what you think.

My "critique"?? You look LOVELY! Like an absolutely perfectly matched pair...your position is essentially perfect as I can tell. He looks alert, happy, like he LOVES HIS JOB/loves are truly a great looking pair who appear equally matched and to be working in concert with one another.
In some pics, his front end is a bit uneven but as I understand, that can be from jumping obstacles that may not challenge him quite enough height-wise to cause him to "bother" to pick 'em up high and put the fullest effort in, since he may feel the height is "beneath him" (?)... I could be totally wrong and I'm sure I'll be told so if that is the case

Also I believe I've been told/read/remember that with horses newer to jumping/younger horses, evening out in the front can come with time & experience.

Let's wait till the experts get on and they can rip apart my comments and give you the correct ones (that was somewhat tounge in cheek, FYI!) :0)

Hey, I just think you guys are doing a great job out there (in those pics) and having the fun/challenge the sport was meant to induce! More power to you!!! And especially keep up the hard's paying off. :0)

Thank you! He is used to showing higher jumps with his old owner (they jumped 3'6 and up) I however am not at that hight yet haha. So sometimes he is a little lazy or I lean and he saves me. Haha. Thank you so much though for your comments :) He is such an amazing horse/partner. He really has taught me a ton from last year.
