Welsh Sport Horse Jumping Critique!
 
This is my horse Seirian, he is a 12 year old Welsh Cob x Thoroughbred, we are currently competing at Training level in eventing and have done up to 3'6" jumpers. I would love critique on him and myself please! :)

Sorry for how many photos there are lol! As you can see he barely clears the jumps ;)

Just for comparison, the bottom photo is him when I first tried him in Sep. 2010 and the top is from June 2013, we've made serious progress!!

I'm rubbish at riding critique, but can I just say hes' GORGEOUS and looks an amazing eventer!
In the September picture you look tiny on him! You've either grown in the June picture, or really lengthened your stirrups!!!

Wow, a lot of good riders recently have joined us on the Horse Forum! You are an impressive rider. Hopefully the other really good riders will chime in with actual critique. I would just like to borrow your low heels, straight back, supple arms and overall ooze of confidence.

You are an excellent rider and your horse is very talented. He looks like he would jump anything for you that you decide to put in his path. The two of you could really advance.
I hate to write this but I would suggest...gulp...that you lose about 12-15 pounds. Take a full year to do this, so it's healthy. Your weight is fine for lower amateur, but I could see this as the only impediment to competing in upper levels. The people you will compete with at the higher levels are lean, mean, fighting machines, and the judges may mark you down in Dressage.

Some of these pictures are over a year old.

Also, I am assuming you dyed your hair, as sometimes the rider has blonde hair up in the helmet and other times it is brown (curly?) and kept down?....

Are you her doctor or parent? Because I do not think you should be advising a young girl to lose 12-15 pounds unless you know her medical history.

Why are posters picking on the OP's appearance - first her weight and now her hairstyle?

Excuse me, that was NOT my point. I remember a thread a while back about somebody posting pictures for a critique and using pictures that were not even them. I was just pointing it out here that some of these pictures were old, and that the riders looked different. Just because another member commented about the rider's weight, don't jump all over me for making an observation that has NOTHING to do with judging the way somebody looks.
