Critique Me and squiggles!!!!!=) (Video)
I rode Squiggles Yesterday. He was pretty good! I am trying to work on my leg and seat to the fences. I am always used to riding to my fences. And help would be awesome! My tall boots hurt like Heck. There pretty new, So when I took them off my whole ankle was blue and sore. The only thing with him as he gets lazy to the jumps, And in a couple fences he dosnt get very good striding. He was pretty tired, Because I rode him yesterday too. I am uploading my Flat video..Here is my Jumping.
Please Critique!!

I know nothing about English riding, but that sure is a cute pony!

Over all I think you guys look pretty good. I would say to lengthen your stirrups even more but you are already aware of that. Hard to tell if you had chicken arms over the fences.

You have very nice equitation which I said when I critiqued you before. You don't pump on this guy as much, but I did notice it before the 2nd fence but that was the only place.

Now I am just nit picking
-bring your elbows in just a bit more so they are closer to your sides
-it looks like when he takes long spots you over exagerate jumping so be careful on that

Thats about all I can see. Very nice job! Love the equitation :D

yeah in past videos you were pumping much more so thats imporving!! one thing i would do is ive noticed while going around ur seat is glued to the saddle. i think (and most judges) it looks alot nice when going around a course in the slightest half-seat. you know what i mean? while jumping it looks alot nicer, but for the flat its good to have a strong seat.
