    Red face How are we doing so far? Critique :)

    I had a wonderful lesson last week and I was working on strides and lines. We practiced 2 strides and 3 strides between each fence.

    My trainer wants me to enter jumpers with my horse because she sees potential because he can be fast, yet controlled to a slower pace. We were working on 2' verticals and cross-rails along with barrels

    How do you think we are doing so far between my position and my horse's fluency over jumps and what can we improve on?

    I might try hunters too.

    Its looking really good so far! You look nicely balanced and your 2 point is appropriate for the size of the fence, I would like to see your arms have a straighter line from your elbow to the bit but other than that I think your off to a great start

    It looks to me as if you've stood up in the stirrups. Instead of standing up, think about folding your body (does that make any sense?). Also thumbs up and elbows in! Your leg is in a pretty good spot, so I wouldn't change that.

    The only thing I think is, you need to relax. You look really stiff.
