Looks good, but in the 2nd pic you have too much of a bend in your arm causing you to be too low on the horses neck. Hard to say from the photo, but I think you might be ahead of the pommel too.

1st pic is great!

You two look awesome! I agree with Alexs.

The second photo is cropped but it looks like you are jumping ahead, your hips look to be in front of the pommel of your saddle.

You need to reposition your iron placement. Your foot should be rinding security in the outter bar of your iron. The outter bar should be at the tip of your tinky toe, and the inner bar should be positioned at the knuckle of your big toe.

That way, you can allow your heels to do their job better, which is to anchor you in your tack.



The first picture, it appears that your heels aren't anchoring you in your tack - it's hard to see though at this angle. Allow your bodies weight to sink into your heels.

well neither pic is that good for critique, but it looks like you are jumping ahead - you are too far out of your tack and your leg has slid back. your arm doesnt cause you to be too close to the neck, being too close to the neck causes your elbow to be that bent. i like your flat back and how your eyes are up !

I totally agree. The first one looks really good (at least to me) but the second one I could tell your arm was bent too much, and then once I read the other posts I looked at it again and saw what they meant by jumping ahead (I'm a beginner rider). Also a picture from the side would be better for critique.

Wow, I think I basically just retyped what everyone else said.

If dreams came true, life would be crazy!!!

Like I have said before, my trainer says im jumping in my two point just fine, and I do agree that I need my leg position fixed but I am NOT jumping ahead! :)
