Jumper Critique Part II (pics)
I posted a thread with videos so i thought i would start a new one of pictures that I took out of the videos so it's more clear: Critique away..

Jumping ahead:

*****please give something positive about the pictures with your critique, I don't want all negative posts, something / anythinig positive would be appreciated!

No real critique from me, you look like a fantastic rider with a super steady leg. The one thing I will point out is that your toes turn out somewhat in a few of the pictures.

The pictures aren't very clear, but you guys look very nice!

The one thing I have to point out though, is your legs swing back over jumps (we all do it occaisionally) and you're a little infront of your saddle over fences. Try to push your legs a little more forward infront of the fence and "fold" with your horse over fences so your butt is more centered over the seat of the saddle and not the pommel.

Nice riding!

Nice lower leg! You look really good!

If your horse were to be taken out from under you, would you land on your feet and stay balanced, or would you fall forwards or backwards? My guess is that right now, you would topple forwards, because you're jumping a little bit forwards out of your saddle, and your leg has slipped back a tinch as well. You look like you have a very strong lower leg, however your forward upper body and your slipped lower leg are correlated; if you jump too far forwards with your upper body, your leg will slip back... if your leg slips back, generally your upper body will fall forwards a bit too; so you need to fix both. Rotate your pelvis a tad more towards neutral, you're rocking it a bit backwards right now, causing your back to hollow out a tinch.
Really, I'm being nit-picky, you look like a lovely rider, but we all have stuff to fix... good lord do I ever know that all too well... *cough*

Pretty nice, girly! :) Make sure you don't get to far down on the horses neck over the jumps for the two point, although you're not doing that in the picture. Don't get to far ahead of the saddle, either. But thats me being picky :) Hope I could help!

Thanks! I don't mind nit picky critiques, those little things add up pretty fast! Sadly I have had quite a bit of unexpected time out of the saddle so I hope that I can continue from here and not be set back
