I think you look really nice. In the first photo your heel almost looks too low though...maybe try not to shove it down as much?

Very nice. Keep the toe pointing forward, not angled outward so much. Lovely pair, you and your mare.

I would try to keep your leg underneath you a bit more over fences. Overall though, you look like a great pair! Good job. :) I'm jealous of your heels--I have super short achilles tendons, so anyone who can get their heels down that far is a superhero in my book.

You look really good, just need a few tweaks. You look kind of stiff in your flat photos so you just need to relax. I love your heels and you elbow to bit line. Over fences, you look like you are jumping ahead a bit which causes your lower leg to slide back. Your toes are going out a bit too much as well which could be caused by your lower leg sliding back, or you are gripping with the back of your calf. You have a good release for this jump height, but I think you might be leaning on his neck a bit. Did he get too close to this jump? I only ask because it looks like his hind legs might be too close to the base of the jump and they are not pushing off evenly. Overall, you look more relaxed over fences and I love your horse's expression. She(?) looks really happy to do her job and you look like you ride her well. Sorry if this seems really nitpicky and if I messed up your horse's gender.

Yeah we chipped this. The photographer only got two pictures of me over fences and of course they were the only ones I chipped!

And its a mare!

Thanks everyone else!

I thought so! Sorry, I forgot to go back and fix the other words after I realized she is a mare. My jumping critique isn't accurate then as the bad distance might have messed you up.
