    Question Good or not?

    I was wondering if this was good form or not. I think it is, I was just wondering what other people though too.

    Yes, I think you two look very nice! Your horse has nice knees too, the only thing I would say is sink into your heels more and you would be perfect in my opinion!

    Thanks. That was something I noticed too. Also, Bee is a stable horse and my trainer told me that she just won grand champ 3 foot at a recent show. If I could I would love to buy her. We are looking for a horse just like her in the area.

    Not bad..just sink more weight into your heels.

    You look somewhat crooked; like you're leaning your hips to the right and your upper body to the left, and looking to the right. Look where you're going, and work on developing straightness.

    Keep those heels down; sink your weight through them into your heels.

    You have the basics down, but lots of work in two-point on the flat will help you out a lot in the long run.

    Thanks, I know I do need to work on sinking more weight into my heels and at first I thought I was looking to the right, but I am actually looking straight. But thanks.

    Not bad! I agree with more heel depth. Try doing some exercises to help stretch out your heel when you're not riding and doing more 2 point. Every time your horse takes a step, think about getting those heels deeper and deeper. I have issues with my heels too so I know how hard it can be! Good luck :)

    form over jumps, good, jump, wondering
