You improved a lot! I can't really show much improvement since I've only been jumping for a month and a half (I just did dressage before that :)). You have a really pretty horse.

Thankyou she taught me to ride, I have had her the 4 out of 5 years that I have been riding! In the first picture she looks like "mommy why am I jumping this I barely need to lift my feet" I feel bad on her but we do exciting stuff now

Your horse is adorable!

You still need to work on your leg contact and automatic release. Good job, though.

I actually improved so much between '06-'07, but I started having loads of back problems so I ended up back tracking alot at the end of the summer and I've just now started back with jumping again. [due more to loosing a horse rather than my back]



[lawlz, too lazy to find a better one.]

Moomoo you stopped looking down but now your ducking to your left I believe and your leg is still slipping back a lot which may indicate your jumping ahead a lil....but big improvement
Equine girl I definitely disagree your second pic is way better ...your hands are more foward and your leg and heel is more set and in position...but I would work on bringing your hands more foward on ur horses neck to give him a bigger release which will give you a better 2point position
Oh hell neely you needto bring your hands up too giving you a better 2point and you center of balance is too foward so bring your butt back....you have a really good leg position though and a stong low heel
Everyone is improving and I am loving the cute horses!!!

I don't usually lean left, I actually remember thinking on landing "why did I just duck left over that?!" But yeah my legs need work!
