Judge my eq?

Im going to start showing eq so I was wondering if you could judge? I know I need to work on my heels, it only happens at the canter. Im also working on my crouch hands.

Dressage/event/jumper here, so can't help on the Hunter stuff. I think you look preety good. You just need to relax those muscles a bit. You look tight. I like the eq in the small photo the best.

I love your haffy. They are such great little horses.

I think you're looking really well :)
I ride Hunters as well, and I'm just going to throw out some things my trainer is telling me to do
I would try a bit straighter of an arm. Picture putting your hands in the middle of your horses neck, then just take your shoulders back. Keep your back straight, and really stretch up through your head.
Just throwing out reminders :) You do look very nice! Do you use a light seat in the canter? It is 'in' right now, and can be very beneficial to ribbon placing.

I practice a light seat and a more deep seat because my horse is more comfortable with it.
