How did you place ?

Over all I think you look pretty good ! The biggest thing that stands out to me is that you are jumping ahead, which causes your leg to swing back.

Thanks! I will work on that! Um I did for classes and I actually fell off in my third class haha! But I ended up getting 3 thirds and a fourth

I agree that you are jumping ahead in both pics. The second one your leg is doing a little more for you though where as in the first one your heel has come up and your leg isnt giving you much support. Looks like your stirrup may be a little far back, if you had it closer to your toe youd be able to sink your weight down easier. Too bad you fell off in your class!! Howd that happed??

Thanks! I will work on that! I had to rollback to a fence in my jump off and my horse decided he would rather go towards the gate which was the other way haha and I just kinda lost my balance

First off, I love your horse, reminds me of one of my favorites that passed away. I agree with everyone else, you are throwing your body which makes you unstable, my trainer used to tell me to stop kissing my horse lol. But it makes you think about not doing it in air =)

Thankyou! And thanks that's a good way to explain it or put it I guess :)

More calf pressure and inner thigh pressure to keep your butt back and over the saddle so you don't jump ahead. Focus on heals down, thatll help you to get all the right muscles engaged to stay stable. Be careful though that if you sink your butt back over the saddle you don't end up leaning down on your horses neck and ducking over him. Think about mooning behind you and flashing in front of you :) that way your butt stays back and chest lifts up off the horse. Make sense?
